Miami is a hotbed of events and every week there is always something new to look forward to regardless of what your preferences or hobbies are. From family activities to tours that one can enjoy alone, Miami doesn’t seem to run out with activities for tourists and locals alike.

If you want to be amazed, bring your family to an event that they will talk about for a month or would want to impress that special someone with a mind-blowing experience, trek over to the Sun Life Stadium at Dan Marino Blvd. because Cirque du Soleil: Amaluna is in town! The kid-friendly show will bring its audiences to “a mysterious island governed by the Goddesses and guided by the cycles of the moon. When a group of young men arrives on the island, an epic, emotional love story ensues”. Cirque du Soleil will be in town from December 16th up to January 4th. Tickets range from $30 to $265.

If you are a lover of the arts, head over to Broward Center for the Performing Arts on Fifth Avenue, Arts and Science District as the Shen Yun Performing Arts is here. There’s classical Chinese dance and an orchestral company who is sharing the wonderful world of traditional Chinese culture through exquisite choreography, stunning costumes and sublime music. Their show will run from December 26th through December 28th.

If you want to celebrate Chanukah during your stay in Miami, Temple Emanu-El at the corner of Washington Avenue in Miami Beach will be holding a Chanukah Celebration on December 16th.
