      Wander through the Wynwood Walls

      There is so much to do in Wynwood, however, this adventure highlights the famous street art.  Bonus for Covid times, most of it can be done outdoors!  There are some indoor features, but that is definitely not the main attraction in my opinion.    The late Tony Goldman, a real estate developer wh...

      Snorkel at Blue Heron Bridge

      4.7
      Phil Foster Park has a large parking lot, but on weekends or during peak hours looking for a spot can get competitive, so leave yourself a little extra time to meet your target "in the water" time. If you're like me and you don't have your own snorkel gear, rentals are available from the Force-E ...
