Inquiring minds at Hilton Miami Downtown would like to know – who doesn’t like free things?
The best things in life are free. Along with our perpetual warm weather and immense cultural scene, one of the best parts of being in the Magic City is the multitude of free fun things to do in Miami. Luckily, the Downtown area has no shortage of free attractions happening throughout the year. And yes, when we say free… we mean FREE! Here are our top choices for fun daily diversions that won’t break the bank!
Is there a particular museum in the area that interests you? There is a very good chance that these houses of learning and culture offer free admission days at least once a month. While many patrons will just choose to pay the nominal admission fee (or donation) to visit the museum of their choice on any given day, frugal free fun seekers can choose to plan their fun on free admission days. Two of the top museums in our area, the Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM) and HistoryMiami Museum, offer free admission once a month, on the first Thursday and second Saturday of each month respectively.
Take an Art Walk through Wynwood!
Walk any random street in Miami and you would be hard pressed not to find a little bit of local color splashed on the walls. Miami’s rich artistic community is quite diverse, but the true nucleus of the cultural scene in Magic City is the former warehouse district, Wynwood. Whether self-guided or during a structured tour (free every second Saturday of the month), taking a Wynwood Art Walk is a perfect free way to soak up some culture along with the sunny rays of our South Floridian sky.
Window Shop at Bayside Marketplace!
Even if your personal bank account isn’t ready for some good ol’ retail therapy, it is never a bad time to window shop at Bayside Marketplace. Not only is this two-story open air shopping center located in the heart of Downtown Miami, it is replete with shops, vendors, live events, and amazing sights of the harbor.
Ride the MetroMover!
Some people love walking the streets of city. Others take to the rails. Trips between your choices of free fun destinations may be lengthy, but the MetroMover is ready to be your magic carpet. Metromover operates seven-days-a-week in the downtown and Brickell area and is absolutely free! The major destinations on its line include American Airlines Arena, Bayside Marketplace, and the Adrienne Arsht Center. Running in loops, it is a great, free way to get around the entire expanse of Downtown Miami.
After a full day of strolling (or rolling through) the streets of the city without spending a dime, continue to choose wisely and stay with us in the heart of the city at Hilton Miami Downtown. Our central location, comfortable accommodations, upscale amenities, and unparalleled service combine for a full package, especially when you take advantage of our special offers - which may include free breakfast and free Wi-Fi… book your stay today!
