Fun Things to Do Within Walking Distance of Miami Brightline?
Posting in the FtL group as I live here, so know what we have locally and not worth traveling to Miami for. I’ve been here for 2 years and barely scraped Miami (American Airlines/Hard Rock Stadium for events, Wynwood for a day with a friend from out of town but that’s it). Obviously the Brightline having a station downtown opens up some fun opportunities. I feel the current last trains back are too early for American Airlines and Arsht stuff, but maybe that’ll change in the future. What have people found themselves doing so far?

One week in June, SoBe + Keys. Help me with itinerary?
Hi guys I’m going to Miami for the first time in early June for one week with my partner. I've organized some sort of itinerary after lots of googling. We’re mid to late 30s living in London-UK and just want to eat good foods, drink, walk on the beach, drive down then up the Keys for a few days, chill. Not crazy about clubs or tourist attractions. As a regular of /london I appreciate how getting these questions can be annoying. But there are some free gaps in my current list and maybe you can recommend something. Here’s what I have so far: • 3 nights (sat/sun/mon) in South Beach. Activities including: brunch, lots of beach and pool time, dinner at Bazaar, then get a scooter and explore north of there (Surfside? Bal Harbour Shops? just random drives?) Anything else we should do? • Get a rental car and drive south to the keys, spend 2 nights at Islamorada. Potential activities: diving, boat trips, local waterfront restaurants etc. More chill. • Thursday to Saturday we have nothing booked, want to play by ear. Potentially one night in Key West but rooms online are super pricey for 1 night only. • Saturday night: Back to Miami Beach, final night at the Standard. Relax at pool and spa, go to Wynwood, PAMM, go for dinner, check out and fly home the next day. So I guess my questions are: 1) Key West - worth spending a night or two? Would it be OK to arrive with no accommodation pre-booked? Would it even get busy on a Thursday in early to mid June? (It seems like a boozy sort of place so I didn’t want to drive in and out for quick visit) 2) 3 nights in Miami Beach at the start + 1 night at the end – is this enough time to go around Miami or should we spend the 2 free days (Thu/Fri) back there instead of the Keys? (I considered Everglades too, is it fun to drive to/from it?) 3) Renting a scooter for 24 hours to ride around Miami Beach, is it worth it? Would you recommend it? Is it normal or crazy to ride around other parts of Miami on it? Oh the final day or two in Miami with the rental car, any areas we should explore? 4) Any other areas like Wynwood (is it still a thing? Google tells me it’s an art district) that we should check out, or others tourist-friendly we should avoid? Thanks all!
