How Many Days Do You Need in Miami, Florida?

I visited Miami, Florida, for the first time last year and certainly not the last.

I spent three days in Miami, and sadly, that wasn’t long enough to experience everything this fantastic city offers. Instead, I recommend first-time visitors stay between five and seven days.

Of course, you can spend less than five days in Miami. I did. But it meant I had to make some compromises. I spent less time at the beach or by the pool and more time exploring the city.

I stayed at the beautiful Loews Miami Beach. This hotel was incredible, and I’m still sad I couldn’t spend more time there—it was fantastic!

Instead, some of the things I did do during my three nights in Miami included:

  • Little Havana
  • Art Deco Historic District
  • South Beach
  • Espanola Way
  • Ocean Drive
  • Vizcaya Museum and Gardens
  • Wynwood Walls
  • Miami Children’s Museum (I visited Miami with my 18-month-old son)

If I’d have had an extra one to two days in Miami, I’d have spent a full day on South Beach. I’d have also not tried to do so much in a day and gone at a slower pace. Especially running on jetlag, having flown from the UK.
