Your ultimate guide to Miami continues with installment number two. Last week, we dropped the complete guide on where to workout while at TYR Wodapalooza, and the series continues with five things to do for fun outside of the competition. To get the most bang for your buck out of your trip to Florida, we encourage you to go exploring and indulge in the activities the vibrant city has to offer before or after the event itself.
1. Go for a hike
While the ‘Magic City’ offers no shortage of city-life and serves as an industrial oasis, you can still get a taste of nature without going too far. Matheson Hammock Park (9610 Old Cutler Road Miami, FL) is one of the closest to the venue, about a 30-minute drive, and houses a man-made pool and marina, conveniently located near restaurants and several trails. Fittingly for the name, the tropical hammock offers a beautiful view through trees and terrain on the ancient walkway. Perfect for kite-boarding, a scenic walk and picnics, it’s a great spot to get away from the hustle and bustle.
Similarly, other nearby areas offer great disc golf options — like Virginia Key Beach Park or Amelia Earhart Park. Or, you could rent a stand-up paddle board and hit Biscayne Bay.
2. Explore Wynwood
Wynwood, a neighborhood art district in Miami located just a few miles from Bayfront Park, is well known for outdoor murals, art installations and an entertaining, creative vibe. Previously a manufacturing district, it’s transformed over the last decade or so into a delightful place to walk around and indulge in street art. Accompanied by plenty of outdoor spaces to hangout and grab a bite, it’s a must visit!
3. Get a sky-high view of Miami
Have you really seen Miami until you’ve taken it in from 200-feet above the bay? Across 42 enclosed, air conditioned gondolas, the ferris wheel located in Bayside Marketplace takes you on a 15-minute ride with views second-to-none. You can buy tickets on site or ahead of time here, and the attraction runs Monday through Thursday 2:00-10:00 PM and Friday through Sunday 1:00-10:30 PM.
4. Soak in the sun on the beach
With beautiful blue water, an abundance of ocean activity options and soft warm sand—no wonder Miami beaches are iconic. With expected temperatures in the mid-70’s…
