Even though it is a delightful fall season of beautiful autumn colors and cool relief from the summer – it won’t be long before winter storms begin.
With winter storms on the way, is anyone thinking of escaping to Miami, Florida? I would be!
Remember this storm: Winter Storm Janus?
So what about this Miami idea? The Kansas City Star ran an article on frugal travel to Miami. But they left one big savings option out: Timeshare!
Buying or renting a timeshare will give you finer luxury accommodations, greater amenities, and more options at an affordable price. If you want to stay at South Beach be prepared to pay top dollar for hotels there. If you rent a timeshare there you will pay less than half the going rack rate.
Here are some other great tips for cheap or free stuff in Miami:
Activities: The Miami Beach Botanical Garden provides a free tropical oasis in the heart of South Beach totaling more than four acres. More of an art fan? The Miami Art Museum offers free admission on the second Saturday of each month. Exercise enthusiasts on the other hand, will want to visit Bayfront Park, which hosts free outdoor yoga classes on Mondays and Wednesdays at 6 p.m., and Saturdays at 9 a.m.
Transportation: As any local can tell you, parking in Miami isn’t usually cheap. That makes the Metromover, downtown Miami’s above-ground rail system a popular choice for visitors and locals alike. The Metromover is free for anyone to ride, and stops at all major downtown destinations. Boarding times are convenient, with cars arriving every ninety seconds during rush hours, and every three minutes during off-peak times.
In December: Art Basel Miami Beach, Design Miami. February: Food Network South Beach Wine & Food Festival. This is a huge event! Expect traffic and reservations hard to get. Also in the Fall – Junior Orange Bowl Festival, Columbus Day Regatta, South Miami Art Festival, Miami Book Fair International, Harvest Festival, Ford Championship Weekend – NASCAR, and White Party.
You can find anything in Miami! Professional football, basketball, NASCAR, international fishing tournaments, arts festivals, music festivals, cultural events from a myriad of choices, and the hottest night life in the world!
