Miami for the Budget Traveler | Miami Tours
From soaking in the sun at the beach to dining, arts and accommodation, Miami is one city that doesn’t have to
be heavy on your pocket. Just because you are on a tight budget it doesn’t mean you have to let go of having the
time of your life on a Miami vacation. There are many special offers, bus tours, cheap dining options, and a
whole lot more to stretch your dollar to the max.
Matheson Hammock Park Beach
You could always have an awesome time at Miami’s beaches to start with. Sun screen and some terrycloth is all
you need to enjoy the best beaches in town. If you are vacationing with kids then hop over to Matheson
Hammock Park Beach. This place is where kite-boarders make the most of the waters while you get to enjoy
amazing vistas of Biscayne Key and Downtown Miami. The park has a mand-made atoll pool that’s just perfect
for toddlers. Anglers in the family can cast a line at the full-service marina while there are several nature trails
through the park.
Crandon Park Beach
Crandon Park Beach is also a fantastic place to save a few dollars yet enjoy some great entertainment. The
beach is across Biscayne Bay and has been listed as among the best beaches in America quite frequently. There
is plenty of shade provided by the palms but you could always rent cabanas.
The park features a picnic area with grills so you can always head to the fish market close by and whip up an
amazing meal. The younger lot has plenty to look forward to at the Crandon Park Nature Center, home to an
excellent selection of tropical fish and plants.
SoBe on a Budget
There is also every opportunity to save a bundle at South Beach, even though it has a rep for being the glitziest
area in town. The beaches between 5th and 15th streets are free while if you are game to ride a bicycle, you can
rent a solar powered one at CitiBike and return it at one of its other stations. On your journey you can stop over
at Surfside’s beach, one of the most laid back beaches that runs from North Shore Open Space Park to 96th
Street. It’s quieter in winter and is a family oriented beach with picnic tables, bathrooms, et al.
Now that you’ve learned to hit the beach on a budget, let’s look at what else Miami has to offer on a budget.
Art Deco Tours
You can’t miss Miami’s Art Deco attractions. All you have to do is walk along Ocean Drive and marvel at the
preserved Art Deco buildings. The MiMo (Miami Modern) buildings from the 1950s with their mosaic murals
and cutout shapes can be found north of Miami Beach.
Explore Miami on the Metromover
Don’t forget to hop onto the Metromover. It’s free and a great way to explore Downtown Miami, Brickell, and
Bayside. It stops at many tourist friendly areas and arts centers while you are free to jump on and off whenever
you like. The Metromover runs in loops so you can always get back to where you begin your journey.
