Explore the Art World
If you and your partner love arts and culture, you’ve come to the right city. From architecture to fine art and everything in between, Miami oozes creativity and beauty.
Love old buildings? Take a tour of Miami’s famous Art Deco district to see amazing sites like historic homes, hotels, office buildings, and more.
Prefer paintings and sculpture? The Pérez Art Museum is a must-see for you. It’s filled with amazing, internationally and internationally-inspired artwork from predominantly modern and contemporary styles.
Or, if you think just both of these ideas are grand, then you will not want to miss out on a visit to the Vizcaya Museum and Gardens, one of the most magnificent buildings in the entire state and truly the most beautiful estate as a whole.
Depending on when you take your romantic vacation to Miami, there are also likely to be a number of film or art festivals floating around – like the Coconut Grove Arts Festival that happens annually in February.
Indulge Your Love of the Animal Kingdom
Is your loved one a huge fan of animals? There’s hardly a better place to indulge your love for all things furry and scaly than Miami.
From the lush wilderness of the Everglades to the expanses of a Saharan-like safari, you can find just about everything for the animal lover in your life.
For those who prefer aquatic animals, a visit to the Miami Seaquarium is both a great way to show them their favorite critters and to help support their conservation efforts.
Or, Lion Country Safari is another great option for those who’ve always dreamed of encountering the animals of Africa in a natural habitat outside of conventional zoo boundaries and enclosures.
Of course, if you just came to Florida to get a taste of gator country, then an Everglades tour is probably your best bet.
Enjoy World-Class Dining
With its decidedly international flair and cosmopolitan vibes, Miami is known for delicious cuisine that’s anything but boring.
So while you’re in town, be sure to sit down and enjoy a romantic meal at any of the city’s sumptuous restaurants, whether you’re looking for fresh-caught seafood or some tasty Cuban street food.
If you’re in town nearer to the end of February, check out the South Beach Wine & Food Festival, hosted each year by the Food Network and the Cooking Channel. It’s a fun opportunity to try new things!
Roam the Great Outdoors
It may seem like a no-brainer, but spend some time outside while you’re in Miami this February!
The weather is going to be lovely (and likely much warmer than where you’re used to), so take advantage of its temperate climate and enjoy a little beach time.
If you want to be out but the beaches sound too touristy for you, try a walk along the very romantic pedestrian walkway on Lincoln Road. Or, opt for something more active with a bike ride around South Beach.
Hop Aboard a Cruise
Hand-in-hand with Miami’s fabulous beaches come Miami’s fantastic waterways. With weather this nice, you have no excuse not to embark on a relaxing (or exciting!) maritime adventure during your trip.
Got a whole day to kill? Take a day trip to Key West for an unforgettable adventure on the open ocean.
Whichever style of cruise you prefer, you’ll be able to get a taste for the beauty of the natural world in Miami, plus the fun and exciting architecture you can see from the ocean.
Save on Admission
As you can see, love is in the air this time of year in Miami. From traditional date ideas to unconventional fun and camaraderie, there’s something for every couple on this list.
