Don’t let Mother Nature put a damper on your visit to Miami!
Mother Nature does not always like to play nice with your plans. What starts out as a bright sunny morning soon turns into a cloudy, shower-filled afternoon. Although our area of the Sunshine State often lives up to the moniker, there will be times when the forecast will take a turn toward wet! We would never want weather to dampen your enjoyment of your time visiting our great city, especially when there are a lot of great things nearby that you can do indoors! Here are a variety of rainy day activities to do in Miami that everyone will enjoy:
Pérez Art Museum Miami
The Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM) is an eclectic mix of contemporary art spanning the entire globe. With its permanent collection containing over 1,800 works, focusing on the 20th- and 21st-century art from the Americas, Western Europe and Africa, Miami’s flagship art museum continues to captivate thousands of patrons annually. Relocating to Museum Park in Downtown Miami in 2013, the museum continues to uphold its mission of not only showcasing some of the top modern art in the world but representing Miami-Dade and the unique viewpoint of its residents.
The Phillip and Patricia Frost Museum of Science
The recently opened and more familiarly known Frost Science Museum is truly state-of-the-art and full of hands-on exhibits to entertain the young and young-at-heart alike. With breathtaking aquariums that need to be seen to be believed and a massive planetarium with shows that enthrall visitors with views of outer space daily, it will be hard not to be interested in the science that is on display. The museum is all about engagement, with the static, standard panels that have plagued museums of old being updated as touchscreens and tablets, making for a fully immersive experience.
Brickell City Centre
Brickell City Centre (BCC) is three full levels of shopping, dining, and entertainment in the heart of Downtown Miami! Take in some retail therapy at the Centre’s 500,000 square foot vertical shopping experience that is a mix of luxury brands to the more contemporary shops and even new-to-the-market boutiques. Don’t come on a full stomach as the multitude of dining options make up the third and even now a fourth level of the complex. All of this Magic City splendor is anchored by CMX, the VIP Cinema Experience, the perfect place to catch the latest films on a screen that will make all previous movie-going happenings pale in comparison.
The Adrienne Arsht Center
Many may not guess that one of the world’s leading performing arts organizations and venues sits in the heart of Downtown Miami. Yet since opening its doors in 2006, the innovative programming that has graced the stage of the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts has put Miami-Dade County on the map in the world of the performing arts. From taking a free tour of the center, pleasing your palate with some fine dining at BRAVA by Brad Kilgore to catching one of the nearly 400 performances they put on a year, there are a variety of attractions to enchant you.
