Take a ride on the Metromover

Move throughout downtown Miami on the Metromover. It’s free, and stops at 20 different places in Miami. You can hop on and off as much as you’d like while visiting lots of great places throughout downtown Miami.

Visit the Miami Art Museum

The Miami Art Museum offers free admission from 1PM until 4PM on the second Saturday of each month, for families with children. You’ll create art, while learning something new with each visit! During the spring, enjoy games and art activities at the Miami Art Museum Family Festival.

Enjoy art at the Gables Art Walk and Wynwood Art Walk

If you love art, you’ll love the Gables Art Walk! Explore unique and inspiring art galleries between 7PM and 10PM on the first Friday of every month. A free trolley takes you between galleries, and you could easily spend your entire evening there! For grownups: some of the art galleries offer complimentary wine samples. On the second Saturday of each month, visit the Wynwood Art Walk. It can be kind of confusing without a map, but it’s fun nonetheless.

Tour Little Havana

Little Havana is a bit south of downtown, and is full of art galleries and quirky little shops to visit. The Calle Ocho Walk of Fame – think Hollywood – is one of the attractions you’ll see when you’re wandering through Little Havana. Stop by the historic Tower Theater to see a free Latin American film in Spanish.

Family time at Biscayne National Park

On the second Sunday of every month (from December until April), take your family to enjoy the Biscayne National Park Family Fun Fest. It’s educational, and it’s fun…what more could we ask for?! Grab your “passport” and hop to each station to get it stamped. Get all five stamps and you’ll earn a free button for completing the adventure!

Explore the Miami Children’s Museum

The Miami Children’s Museum is free every third Friday of the month, from 3PM until 9PM. Explore hands-on art and culture exhibits. A few of our favorite exhibits include: My Green Home (learn about sustainability), Ocean Odyssey (900 gallon salt water tank exhibit), and the Castle of Dreams (a two-story sand castle). The Miami Children’s Museum is one of our favorite free things to do in Miami with the girls, they always have a blast. Don’t leave home without checking out Miami’s free museum days!

  • We’ve visited Florida several times, but always in the St. Pete/Tampa/Clearwater areas. But I’ve wanted to see Miami since the 80s, when I was a little obsessed with Miami Vice, lol.

      I love visiting Clearwater! We always go to Pier 60 and enjoy the sunset, as well as watching the street performers.
