How to Make the Holidays Worthwhile in Miami

Is your usual holiday trip predictable and redundant? Are you looking for a new twist in your vacation? Why not try Miami? It’s a hotbed of events and things to do that you’re going to wish you could duplicate yourself. Though the Miss Universe pageant has ended, Miami is still not short of things you might be interested to do.

For those who have green thumbs, over at 7334 Red Road is Isabel Fine Home Furnishings where they will be conducting the event called Bizarre Botany: Tropical Botanic Artists. Here artists from the Miami-based Tropical Botanic Artists group get together to present exhibits consisting of black and white images that will be included in The Big Bad Book of Botany: The World’s Most Fascinating Flora by Michael Largo. Admission is free and will only be open on the 26th of January.

If you have the family along with you, you might want to try the Museum of Discovery and Science’s Brain: The World Inside Your Head. It is a traveling exhibit made in the collaboration of Pfizer Inc., Evergreen Exhibitions, and the National Institutes of Health. The exhibits have traveled from the Smithsonian and are hitting select museums all over the country. According to the activity description, “Using innovative special effects, hands-on learning activities, video games, optical illusions, and interactive displays, BRAIN shows how the brain functions and how, like other parts of the body, it can sometimes malfunction. This fascinating limited-engagement exhibit for all ages provides a hands-on and up-close look at the human body’s most essential and fascinating organ by exploring its development, geography, and function. In the process, the exhibition makes brain-related disorders easier to understand”. The exhibit will be running all month long until the 3rd of March.

If you are a fitness nut this may be of interest to you. Patricia and Phillip Frost Museum of Science are holding the Natural Therapies from the Cancer Patient Perspective wherein lectures from Ann Fonfa will help enlighten you about the disease. Admission is $5 though members can access the event for free.

Yogi will be delighted to know that Gentle Yoga with Stacey is still ongoing in the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Miami. However, if you are looking for great entertainment value, the Kravis Center for the Performing Arts will be holding the comedy show of Emmy award nominated writer-performer Eugene Pack and Dayle Reyfel entitled Celebrity Autobiography: In Their Own Words. It will run until February 1st only, so don’t miss it! Another thespian performance you shouldn’t miss is the musical Into the Woods at Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts. If you are highly anticipating the film adaptation, better familiarize yourself with the musical it was originally debuted in. Over at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts is Disney’s The Lion King: National Tour which will be in town until the 1st of February.

As you can see there is so much to do in Miami and we hope you will be able to enjoy the duration of your stay.
