It's the best time of the year to get cozy with your friends and loved ones. Miami and its surroundings have a lot to offer. From ice skating to indoor skydiving, this city has it all. If you are off from work and think you need the weekend to enjoy yourself, then you haven't explored enough. 

It's time to check out everything that Miami has to offer. With so many possibilities and things to do, we're sure you'll be making new friends. 

Explore the Wynwood Walls 

Where: 2520 NW 2nd Ave, Miami

Grab your digital camera and take pictures of this beautiful neighborhood. Many tourists travel from around the world to visit this place. Even if you've been here many times, we assure you that you'll find new murals and art. The place continues to expand and it seems like local artists are always busy painting the walls during business hours. That means you can go in the morning and maybe enjoy some live painting.

Bike around Morningside Park

Explore Coral Castle

The weird limestone building in Homestead was built by Edward Leedskalnin in 1920. It is nothing like you've ever seen before in Miami. Apparently, Edward lived in this castle without a real kitchen or bed. Come here for the pictures but not for a stay.
