Hi everybody I'm leaving to Florida in couple of days. I chose that destination cause it's cheap and I'm assuming it has gorgeous beaches as well and I need to relax cause I need a break from everything.

I want to explore Miami but I don't like going to places that are too touristy so does anyone knows like the hot spots for local people. Any local bars that play reggae or very chill music.

I do love museums so any best known museums over there.......

Two of my favorite places to visit when we lived in south Florida was Everglades National Park and the drive out to Key West. Of course, there are great beaches all over, but (and even though we lived on the east coast of FL) my favorites were some of the beaches on the west coast. I'm not familiar with any museums of significance in Miami. Washington DC is the place for museums!

I also recommend the everglades. get on one of those airboats. it's really cool you don't realize just how big it is until you are out there. tons of gators too.

I guess south beach is very touristy but still, it's a lot of fun, there are some very relaxed places around there.

Drive out to Key West. Nothing like it in North America.

Miami Modern Art Museum, History Museum and the public library are in the same court. All of these are located downtown. Even if you do not visit the museums, the outside court is beautiful.

There is also a Spanish cathedral in Miami that was brought to USA in 1900s. It is in the middle of nowhere but worth a visit.

The Keys are amazing!!! Make sure to have seafood....

oh man... an airboat is one of those boats with the giant fans on the back. they just glide over the water!

If you love to party than you should definitely spend a lot of time in south beach.
