When you visit Miami, don’t just check out the common sights. A short drive from Key Biscayne is the big city, with plenty to do, see, and explore. One of our favorite lesser-known spots is the Miami River. Beloved by locals, it’s worth visiting for some water-oriented fun.
Miami River: Why Go?
A course at Pankey is an opportunity to learn and experience something unique. That extends to what you do in your free time as well.
The Miami River is a six-mile waterway with boating and views of the impressive Miami shoreline. It is entertaining a fabulous rebirth that provides ample attractions to the curious tourist.
Multi-million dollar developments going up in the area have inspired growth and some of the hottest Miami restaurants. It’s also just plain old beautiful looking at the high rises, gorgeous homes, and marinas dotting the view.
Best Sightseeing, Food, and Fun
The best way to appreciate the Miami River is by getting out on the water, instead of observing it from afar. Interestingly, the river is still a cargo passageway, with many container ships easily navigating the booming trade path. Get a look at the river up close by chartering a small, private cruise along the river. This company also has an option for chartering.
Our favorite place to eat overlooking the Miami River has to be Seaspice, a brasserie and lounge with a garden. Watch the sunset over the river after a long day out in the warmth. Cool down with a handcrafted Blossom Martini and sample their delightful wagyu dumplings.
Walk off your amazing meal along the riverfront to take in more of the lush, green blend of cityscape and natural environment. If you’re beat from the long day, you could also take a segway.
