Miami - Top Interesting Places & Interesting Things to Do (II)

Jungle Island 

If you're lucky enough to be an experienced traveler, visiting locations where tropical animals live is an exciting experience. Jungle Island offers visitors this opportunity within the Miami borders. Animals like Flamingos, Cranes and Condors call this island home. Visitors get an up close and personal view of the animals; for the real tropical rainforest effect.If you would like to do an unforgettable Zoo experience you must do the Jungle Island VIP Tour. It's not recommended for smaller children, but you'll remember it for ever.
 

Key Biscayne and Biscayne National Park 

Key Biscayne may not be as pretty as Miami Beach or attract as many beautiful bodies, but it compensates for this lack of superficial beauty with its serenity. Despite rising property prices, it has maintained a tranquil air. With little nightlife or shopping, the lure for visitors is nature: there are pristine beaches, two waterfront parks, a cycling path and gorgeous views of Miami... And did you know you could snorkel and scuba dive in Miami? Tourists aren't aware of a gorgeous Biscayne National Park providing this service and more. Since 95% of the park is water, one can enjoy fishing, scuba diving, snorkeling, kayaking or simply sailing.
 

Vizcaya Museum & Garden

The sight of the Italian Renaissance-style Vizcaya Museum & Garden on the Biscayne Bay is straight out a fairytale book. It's bizarre to discover a European-style palace in this beach lovers' paradise, but visiting it is like entering a wonderland. Built for Chicagoan industrialist and Europhile James Deering in the 20th-century, the extravagant architecture conceals an opulent interior. Full of European antiques and decorative works from the 16th to 19th centuries, and complete with original fittings, it will whisk you away to a golden age. It's a popular wedding destination. 


Ancient Spanish Monastery 

At over 800 years old, the Spanish Monastery is historically the oldest building in the Western Hemisphere. It's origin geographically places it back to Spain where it was built. In the 20th century, William Randolph Hearst had it disassembled and brought to Miami where it stands today. Besides being a historic tourist attraction, it is highly popular for weddings.
 
Venetian Pool 

If a pool is just a place to swim then why would a Venetian Pool in Miami be such a tourist attraction. Built in 1924 out of coral rock, it was named after a Venetian Lagoon; designed in Italian style. It is the largest freshwater pool in the United States with a grand waterfall, a kiddy pool and even a bridge to complete the Venetian style. The pool is so precious it is protected by the U.S. Department of Historic Places.
 

Grapeland Water Park

Who would think Miami was home only to one water park? This brand new park which opened in 2008 brings family fun to the cosmopolitan city. Bright designs by local artist Romero Britto make this water park a wet and wild work of art.
 

Skydiving Miami 

Sometimes the best way to see a city is from the air. We're not talking about from your flight in but instead skydiving over the pristine beaches of Miami. For years this thrilling way to view the city has been the opportunity of a lifetime to enjoy 4 minutes of flying like a bird.
 

Duck Tour

Considering that the city of Miami is surrounded by a lot of water, imagine taking a tour not only of the city, but on water as well. May it be extremely touristy, but Duck Tours are a unique way to include both. Hydra Terra vehicles are used to ride not only the roadways but the waterways. Tours include the opportunity to see South Beach, Star Island, Millionaire's Row and other famous tourist destinations. 


A Rustic Paradise

And when you you've had enough of the sun, surf and tropical tours, the farm fields around Homestead make for a bucolic break. The Fruit & Spice Park is the only garden of its kind in the United States, a 30-acre park exhibiting over 500 varieties of fruits, veggies, spices, herbs, nuts and exotic edibles. An old schoolhouse and coral rock building chart Florida's pioneer life. Another throwback to the fruit farming of old is "Robert is Here", which started life in 1959 when the shop's namesake, then six, began selling the family's cucumbers from a small stall. Since then, it has grown into an exotic emporium of fruit and veg. In the lovely setting you can drink fruity milkshakes and buy sweet gifts.
