There’s Nowhere Else Like Miami Beach To Stay Active, Healthy and Inspired With Exciting Experiences All Year Long
Miami Beach, FL – Feb 11, 2019 – Miami Beach is a paradise for travelers who want to immerse themselves in energetic, active and outdoor experiences. With enviable and mild temps most the year, the city is a playground that offers a multitude of outdoor activities on almost every traveler’s wish list. Enjoy the tropical climate of the island city by spending time outdoors, sightseeing, swimming poolside or on the beach, doing yoga, bicycling and when ready, relaxing with refreshing poolside bites and cocktails. According to Forbes magazine, “The upcoming trend in travel is personalization. Everyone has different interests: some people are into camping, others are into staying at boutique hotels or getting pampered in spas, while others may prefer large beach resorts….all travelers should be able to build their trips around their personal tastes and enjoy experiences that fit their personalities.”
Known for being one of the most walkable cities in the U.S., Miami Beach also offers a great mix of pedestrian streets, rental bikes, public trolleys, and buses to whisk visitors to their next destination within the city effortlessly. “We want visitors to know that traveling doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice your active lifestyle”, says Steve Adkins, Chair, the Miami Beach Visitor and Convention Authority (MBVCA). “Miami Beach is packed with one-of-a-kind, vigorous experiences for those looking for an away adventure. The best way to familiarize oneself with a new city is by exploring on foot. We’re encouraging visitors to do just that or rent a public Citibike, or hop on one of our many free trolleys, so they can get to our beaches, parks, spas and walking/biking paths among dozens of health-conscious experiences our city has to offer.”
Whether traveling for business or visiting with family or friends, the Miami Beach Visitor and Convention Authority says this list of curated experiences should be top-of-mind for travelers craving healthy, wholesome, active fun in the city.
