Spring break in Miami is so popular that it’s almost a cliché. Of course, there’s a reason Miami is such a popular spring break destination, and it doesn’t look like the tourism boom is slowing down anytime soon. The palm trees, beautiful beaches, bustling night life, and popular attractions keep the crowds coming back.
Although it’s hard to imagine that it’s almost spring, spring break is coming in March, just a few weeks away. You’ll have to start making plans soon if you want to get the best deals. In the deals department, we can help you out with discounted Miami attractions, which is perfect for those of you taking a family vacation for spring break or for those who just want to experience some of the world-class entertainment Miami offers outside of the beach and the club.
For instance, a scenic cruise along the beautiful Biscayne Bay is an activity visitors of all ages will enjoy. Island Queen Cruises offers a relaxing narratedn 90-minute sightseeing cruise, in which a friendly and knowledgeable guide will give you the low down on the history and culture as you pass “Millionaire’s Row” and the Port of Miami. Of course, you’ll have views of the Miami skyline the whole time, so if you’re more interested in the scenery than the background, this tour won’t disappoint. The Glass Bottom Boat Cruise, departing from Key Largo, is also a great choice if you’d like to see the colorful underwater world of coral reefs and tropical fish as you glide along the water.
You probably know Key West as the southernmost city in the continental United States and a vacationer’s paradise—but did you know you could get there by bus? That’s right, on the Key West Tour from Miami, you’ll cross 42 bridges while hopping 32 islands to spend the better part of the day in Key West! You’ll have about six hours to do as you please upon your arrival, taking in the Caribbean atmosphere as you explore the art, boutiques, and mouth-watering dining options. For the more adventurous, water sports are also a big crowd-pleaser and short cruises are plentiful. Whatever you do, a day trip to Key West will put your vacation a step above the rest!
If you’re looking for Miami attractions that are really unique, and even a bit quirky, you can’t beat Coral Castle, which was recently ranked the Top Historic Hot Spot in Southern Florida by TripAdvisor! This amazing structure made of megalithic stones (mostly limestone formed from coral) was built single-handedly by Ed Leedskalnin between the years of 1923 and 195 as a tribute to his lost lover, Agnes Scuvst, who cancelled their wedding just one day before the ceremony. This five-foot tall, 110-pound man seems to have defied physics with his masterpiece, having used only hand tools to move and arrange the massive coral walls (weighing literally TONS of pounds), and working only in privacy. Some claim he must have used magical powers while others cite Ed’s genius understanding of engineering principles. When asked how he built the castle, Ed would reply simply “It’s not difficult if you know how.”
