The Engage Guide to Miami
If you’re joining us for Engage 2020, you should know that Miami is more than just white sand beaches, pristine water and sunshine. The south Florida city is filled with great museums, vibrant street art, active nightlife, oceanside dining, Art Deco architecture and so much more.
Your dilemma won’t be what to do in Miami – it will be what not to do. Since there’s no shortage of ways to spend your non-Engage hours, we’ve compiled a quick rundown of our favorite spots and activities to keep you going day and night.
Things to Experience
Wynwood Walls: Perhaps the most stunning cornucopia of street art on the planet, the walls around Wynwood are dazzled with masterpieces—blocks and blocks of them. And it's free!
South Beach: Sprawling for 2-plus miles along Miami Beach's southeastern tip, this stretch of sand is extraordinarily wide and known for its turquoise waves.
Vizcaya Museum & Gardens: Set on pleasant Biscayne Bay in Coconut Grove, this beautifully maintained mansion houses a wide variety of art from the 15th to the 19th century. Just a stroll through the leafy gardens is worth the price of admission alone.
Little Havana Food & Cultural Tour: On this culinary and cultural walking tour, you’ll take a deep-dive into the famous Little Havana neighborhood, taste authentic Cuban cuisine and listen to the stories of those who know it best.
Lincoln Road: Referred to as the "Fifth Avenue of the South," this pleasant pedestrian mall harbors plenty of posh shops and trendy cafes.
Where to Eat
Versailles: A Cuban-American institution, this Little Havana restaurant has a legion of Cuban dining options. If you only have time for one meal, this is the spot.
Upland: Originating in New York City, Upland’s laid back, neighborhood vibes makes it a perfect fit for Miami Beach’s SoFi.
Joe’s Stone Crab: You’ve got to offer more than just great marketing skills if you want to stick around for more than a century, and Joe’s is the real deal. Bring your hammer and dive into their famous crab claws!
Sugarcane: The best thing about dining at Sugarcane is that you can try as many tapas-style dishes as you want, and always order more.
KYU: KYU features Asian eats with a barbecue twist. Here you can find wood-fired meats, brisket lettuce wraps and duck “burnt ends,” and sushi, all in the fashionable Wynwood neighborhood.
We hope you’ll take advantage of your time here in Miami - we can’t wait for you to come and see for yourself!
