Miami, Florida, is a fantastic city to visit, and visiting it in your RV is a wonderful way to see it all. Visiting a city as large and diverse as Miami takes some planning. Here are some items for your Miami checklist.
Step 1: Rent an RV
Don’t have an RV? No problem! Outdoorsy’s peer to peer RV rental process is easy and gives you access to some incredible RVs. Currently, if you’re renting an RV in the Miami area, you’ll want to consider this adorable class C with great gas mileage and this little trailer. Whether you’re looking for a small RV that can go anywhere or a large RV for living it up on vacation, you’ll find something worth exploring here.
Step 2: Choose Where To Stay
If wilderness camping is what you’re looking for, you’ll want to consider the Larry & Penny Thompson Campground, which is on 270 acres of woodland. It offers electrical and water hookups, a large freshwater lake with a beach and waterslide and more.
Embassy RV Park is one of several highly rated private parks in the area. Customers cite the easy drive to South Beach (25 minutes as long as you’re avoiding traffic), which is pretty great as RV parks are usually on the outskirts of tourist destinations. Consider Miami Everglades RV Resort or consider staying in nearby Fort Lauderdale, FL, which is about a forty-minute drive.
You can also look for availability at the campgrounds in Everglades National Park.
Step 3: Choose What To Do
There’s so much to do in this area, and your priorities will affect where you’d like to stay and how you choose to do it. RVing can be a great way to keep your travel budget in check, but make sure it works for your needs. You may want to consider:
- Visiting the Everglades
- Sunbathe & People Watch on Miami Beaches
- Visiting Wynwood and its vibrant cultural scene
- Enjoying Miami cuisine – try a real Cuban at Versailles!
- Strolling Vizcaya Museum & Gardens
- Visiting Phillip & Patricia Frost Museum of Science
- Taking free salsa dance lessons on Tuesdays at iconic bar Ball & Chain
- Visiting Azucar Ice Cream Company (because vacation is for ice cream)
- Tour the Wynwood Walls – free to visit, or pay $25 for a great tour
- Climb the lighthouse at Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park
- Explore Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden
- Swim at Venetian Pool, the only pool on the National Registrar of Historic Places
- Visit Robert Is Here, Miami’s most popular Fruit Stand
That’s just a small sampling of what there is to do in Miami. Be sure to plan your travel carefully, either bringing or renting a car or avoiding busy rush hour or taking advantage of an Uber, taxi, or public transportation. There’s tons to do in Miami.
