My wife and I will be spending 5 days in Miami. 3 days before our cruise on March 2 and 2 days after. Any suggestions on what to do, see, etc. in Miami?

Crandon Park Beach is a beautiful 2 mile long, white sand beach, just South of the port of Miami. It's named amoung the top ten beaches in the nation. You may want to consider a beach day there.

You will want to spend some time in South Beach. There is a zoo and Seaquarium. How about Everglades National Park? Parrot Jungle Island or Monkey Island. Museum of Science. How about renting a car and driving to Ft lauderdale or just up the coast of Florida. It is a very pretty drive. I am sure your hotel will have free brochures on things to do and places to go in Miami.

Papa55, not only is there a beach at Crandon Park, there's a zoo, there's also a stadium. There are plenty of restaurants. Plenty of shopping. You might even consider going down to the keys, Key West is a lot of fun. You're getting close now!!

Have to agree with Penny3333. I would head for the keys. . . one of my favorite places on earth.

Thank you, Penny. My wife is a shopoholic--she will love that! The drive to the keys sounds great too.
