Take a seat on the beach as the sun edges over the horizon and watch in awe as the urban landscape of Miami lights up with a golden glow. It’s the perfect way to start a day in this colourful city.
A VISIT TO PEREZ ART MUSEUM
For the culture vulture couples, there’s nowhere else that offers more opportunity to see some of the world’s most contemporary art than at Pérez Art Museum Miami.

Dedicated to the art of the 20th and 21st centuries, the Pérez Art Museum embraces the power of art and creativity to start a conversation with people from all over the world.
CANOE OR KAYAK AROUND THE MANGROVE TRAILS
Miami’s nature extends much further than the gorgeous beaches and turquoise oceans of South Beach. Head out on a tour to Florida’s magical and unique Mangrove Tunnels which are found in many coastal areas of Florida. Take a kayak through the waterway paths under the canopies of mangrove trees and steadily paddle through while keeping your eyes peeled for manatees, different species of fish, and birds that might be perching in the trees. Take your time and if you’re on a guided tour, listen to how this beautiful paradise creates an ecosystem that’s vital to Florida’s environment.
EAT AT WYNWOOD YARD
The ideal place for a casual date in Miami comes in the form of Wynwood Yard. This entrepreneurial hub is a hive of activity where the independent establishments of Miami come to try out their business ideas and introduce it to the population of Miami. The food trucks are ever changing but expect hot dogs, BBQ food, mac and cheese, pizza, and tacos that are all lovingly made and might just a step above anything else you may try in Miami. If you don’t come here for the food, there are often live music acts here who send sweet music into the balmy Miami air five nights a week…
Shop until you drop on Miami Beach’s Lincoln Road. This pedestrianized street is the place to be for a leisurely afternoon of shopping, eating, and people watching. Be prepared to part with your money in places like Anthropologie, Zara, Nike, Forever 21 and more. Or, take part in the fine art of window shopping before taking a seat among locals and global travelers for a refreshing drink in one of the many outdoor seating areas. Miami’s endless sunshine means there are plenty of umbrella-covered seats where you can watch the world go by in a place of romantic, and potentially shopped-out, bliss.
Vizcaya Museum and Gardens, just north of Coconut Grove, is a Natural Historic Landmark in Miami and was built to be the home of James Deering in 1910. The house and gardens combined create a place that you might not expect to find in Miami, but the European-inspired landscape definitely looks like it belongs and will soon evoke a sense of romance that’s reminiscent of Italy and France. Explore the Secret Garden, the Fountain Garden, or the Maze Garden, all of which include subtropical plants that suit Miami’s atmosphere and climate and add to the subtle passion of this place.
SUP (STAND UP PADDLEBOARDING) ALONG THE WATERS OF MIAMI
Experiencing Miami’s skyline from a standup paddleboard is a completely different experience to seeing it from a boat cruise. You might see some of the same sights, but SUPing on the waters of Miami is a unique and more intimate way to enjoy Miami with your loved one. Get your balance and cruise the salty waters of Indian Creek at your own pace. SUPing is a great daytime activity but it can also be done at night—try your SUP skills on an LED SUP and enjoy the transformation of Miami Beach as day turns to dusk. Magical sunset not guaranteed but if there is one, the romance will definitely turn up a notch or too.
