As a UNESCO World Heritage Site, International Biosphere Reserve, and Wetland of International Importance—only a few places on earth make all three lists—the Florida Everglades are a must-do in southern Florida. Here’s what you should know about visiting from Miami.
401 Biscayne Blvd, Miami, FL, 33132
Feel warm tropical breezes as you step out of the shops and onto the promenade at this two-story complex of retailers. Bayside Marketplace features both local and national brands, as well as items—including souvenirs—for all budgets. In addition, boat tours, bike tours, water taxis, and fishing charters leave from here: It’s a great place to board a bay cruise or boat ride on the bay.
Things to Know Before You Go
In the evenings and on weekends, the market’s atmosphere often gets energetic with dancing and live music.
Vehicle parking, handicapped parking, and stroller parking are all available.
Aside from many restaurants, there is a food court serving more fast, casual dining options.
How to Get There
Bayside Marketplace is located right on the water on Biscayne Boulevard. There is plenty of paid parking available, and many routes arrive on Miami Beach and South Florida public transportation and Metrorail. It is about a 15-minute walk (less than one mile/1.6 kilometers) from the heart of downtown Miami.
When to Get There
The marketplace is open daily from 10am. Closing hours, and individual restaurant and shop hours, vary—all are available on the Bayside Marketplace website.
See Miami from the Water
After exploring Miami by land, see a different side of the city by heading out onto the water. Sightseeing tours of Biscayne Bay allow for uninterrupted views of the Miami skyline, its many landmarks, and even some celebrity homes. Check out the Port of Miami, Fisher Island, Star Island, and the Venetian Islands while enjoying a relaxing cruise.
