Free Miami Nightlife & Events: Culture, Dance Clubs & Family Fun
Find a long list of free things to do in Miami, whether you want to hit the dance floor, explore culture, or spend time with the little ones. Here's a taste of the many ongoing events and activities that take place in the "Magic City".
Go into the galleries. Head to Wynwood Arts District, and encounter contemporary art from massive murals to dozens of boutique galleries. If you happen to be in town on the second Saturday of the month, galleries open their doors for extended hours to stroll and socialize.
Wander the art walks. During the Bird Road Art Walk, get a glimpse of the artistic process. Watch photographers snap live sessions as potters mold their medium into handmade crafts. For first Fridays, the Gables Gallery Walk draws crowds for diverse monthly exhibits. Conversely, head to historic Little Havana on the last Fridays to celebrate art, music and culture at Viernes Culturales.
Dance the night away. There is no shortage of clubs, bars and lounges in Miami. And you can tap into the happening nightlife scene without tapping into your bank account. Check out the poolside Skybar at the Shore Club. Admire stunning panoramic views of the city at the Sunset Lounge. Go out for perfectly mixed mojitos at rooftop bars, and get dressed up to go to Delano's cover-fee free lounge. For live music, make your way to the Design District or The Stage.
Spend time with the kids. Pack a picnic to see an outdoor film at the Miami Beach SoundScape Cinema Series. The second Friday of the month, head to the Miami Science Museum to see the stars. Find shopping, dining and entertainment that never ends near our hotel at CocoWalk, Bayside Marketplace, Lincoln Road, and Ocean Drive.
