Free Tours in Miami offer you an opportunity to dig deeper behind its glossy exterior and discover its interesting history with a guide.

Highly recommended is the Coconut Grove Miami City Tour, where you will visit Miami’s oldest community and learn about the rich history of Coconut Grove and the surrounding area. This is Miami’s original art gallery district and is famed for being a hub for musicians, artists and writers. Also not to be missed it the Miami Art Deco District Tour, that takes you to all the emblematic art deco buildings Miami is known for.

Highlights of a Free Tour in Miami
Miami is home to over 800 art deco buildings from the 1930s. These beautiful and ornate buildings are everywhere in South Beach, and you can see many with Miami Free Walking Tours. It’s an architectural treasure chest. Some of the most popular include The Cavalier Hotel, Senor Frogs Restaurant, Colony Theater, The McAlpin, and The Breakwater. Find fascinating stories about the buildings and the meanings behind their ornate features. Nearby is the extravagant and notorious Versace Mansion. Once home to the famous designer, it is now a luxury hotel. True crime fans will know this as the spot where Versace was tragically murdered. Tourists also enjoy visiting the Woman’s Club of Coconut Grove, the Coconut Grove Library, and the Barnacle. You will also find the Vizcaya Museum and Gardens here, a breathtaking Gilded Age estate turned museum… It has to be seen to be believed.
Things to Do in Miami
Start your day people-watching on the iconic Ocean Drive. As you walk down it, you’ll realize that it feels so familiar because it has been the backdrop to countless movies. If you are looking for a more relaxed walk, continue to the southern end of South Beach, away from the commotion of Ocean Drive, and spend the day soaking up the sun. The music and cuisine of Miami are heavily influenced by Latin music. Cuban, Dominican, Colombian, Brazilian, and Caribbean populations have brought their cultures, meaning that you can listen to conga, rumba, and merengue or to any other Latin sound you care to imagine on any night of the week. There are many music venues and restaurants, but among the best are the iconic Little Havana’s Ball and Chain and Café La Trova (recently named one of the best bars in the world). Day or night, Miami has you covered!
