Away from the beaches, visit Pérez Art Museum Miami, filled with fascinating modern and contemporary international art. Wynwood Arts District has dozens of galleries and hundreds of restaurants. In Miami Beach, see the poignant Holocaust Memorial, a giant arm reaching skyward and covered with gaunt figures representing holocaust victims. Read victims’ names on the large memorial wall.

Observe exotic animals in the free-range Zoo Miami and hundreds of monkeys at Monkey Jungle. Be entertained by dolphins, tropical fish, manatees and seals at Miami Seaquarium.

Head south along the coast to admire sailboats in Coconut Grove’s marina. Shop on the Miracle Mile in Coral Gables. Returning north, stop at Vizcaya Museum and Gardens, a large Italian-style villa with elaborate gardens.

Drive to the Everglades National Park in less than 1 hour. Boat along the 99-mile (160- kilometer) wilderness waterway and look for alligators, crocodiles and panthers in the lush wetlands.

Enjoy professional sports with Miami HEAT basketball, Dolphins football and Marlins baseball. The Marlins play in Little Havana, where you can observe Cuban and Hispanic influences on the city and the nation.
