Shopping & Entertainment

You have plenty of options when it comes to an upscale Miami shopping spree. Start at Brickell City Centre, an open-air complex with plenty of options for shopping, dining, and entertainment, including a luxury movie theater. Nearby Bayside Marketplace similarly has something for everyone, and it’s here that you can catch a cruise on the bay. For shows and events, we recommend Miami Heat games and blockbuster concerts at FTX Arena, or head over to Marlins Park and soak in a baseball game in their state of the art retractable roof stadium.
