Five of our favorite spots in Miami Beach squeezed into one easy, breezy bikeable adventure:
1. Cruising around on one of our bikes is absolutely the best way to explore Miami Beach on bright, sunshiny days. Ask anyone!
2. The rental fee is $15 for the entire day. (We recommend departing early and returning late to get the most bang for your buck.)
3. The bikes are parked right out back, so you can stop by the front desk anytime, grab a key and go.
4. You’ll definitely want to wear sunscreen. (We’ve learned the hard way.)
5. Lock ’em up!
Destination: Collins Park/Bass Museum of Art
Out of our drive, hang a right onto 28th Street and another right onto one of Miami Beach’s main drags, Collins Avenue. From there, it’s just a few blocks down to Collins Park (look for it on your right), home of the Bass Museum. There’s a bevy of noteworthy public art around this park, including some cheeky pieces by Olaf Breuning (pictured below). Take some time to check it all out, and make sure to wander behind the museum for more!
Destination: South Beach
Continue down Collins Avenue, hang a left on 18th Street and pretty soon you’ll see the ocean. Casually cruise down the boardwalk until you’re ready to hit the beach.
Destination: Puerto Sagua Restaurant
For a little local flavor (and a delicious pick-me-up), continue south on the boardwalk, which runs parallel to the iconic Ocean Drive. When you’ve spotted 7th Street, turn right and pedal towards Collins Avenue until you’ve arrived at our next stop. It’s all about the empanadas and fresh orange juice at this cozy SoBe spot.
Head south on Collins Avenue, hang a right on 4th Street and then a left on Washington Avenue until you spot MyCeviche (should be on your left). This super-fresh, super-tasty hole-in-the-wall seafood joint turns out some killer eats. Take some time mulling over the menu (tacos are always solid), before placing an order to go; we’re taking this comida to South Pointe Park. (Pro tip: pop in between 4-6pm, Monday through Friday to score 2-for-1 tacos.)
Destination: South Pointe Park
From there, the park is just a straight shot south on Washington Avenue. When you’ve made it, look for a shady spot to take a break and dig in.
We’ll have an ice-cold Broken Shaker cocktail waiting for you when you get back!
