Performing Arts Venue
“One of Miami’s architectural gems, centrally located in the Cultural Corridor and designed by Argentian architect César Pelli, the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts of Miami-Dade County. Enjoy Broadway Shows, Ballet, Opera, Concerts, Dance, Jazz Series, World Music and more. The Arsht Center is home to the greatest artists and productions from around the world. Attend a show in one of the three state-of-the-art theaters - the 2,400-seat Ziff Ballet Opera House, the 2,200-seat Knight Concert Hall, the intimate Carnival Studio Theater and the beautiful Thomson Plaza for the Arts, designed as a perfect stage for outdoor performances. The Arsht Center is one of the largest performing arts centers in the United States and was partly built on the site of a former Sears department store; an Art Deco building constructed in 1929, pre-dating the Art Deco hotels on Ocean Drive. It was added to the United States National Register of Historic Places in 1997 as Sears, Roebuck and Company Department Store.”

Neighbourhood
“Downtown Miami is one of the premier business districts in the southern United States. Along with Brickell, a densely packed residential and commercial neighborhood directly south across the Miami River, this part of town is a key financial hub for Latin America and the Caribbean. To get a feel for the place, wander through its commercial canyons or hop the efficient Metromover tram system to get around faster. Home to most of Miami’s high-capacity performance and event arenas, including American Airlines Arena (home to the Miami Heat NBA team) and Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts of Miami-Dade County (location of the Florida Grand Opera and Miami City Ballet), downtown Miami is also a great place to experience South Florida in style. For a view of the massive Port of Miami – the busiest cruise port in the U.S. – and Miami Beach, don’t miss the Museum Park Baywalk along Biscayne Bay.”

Monument / Landmark
“Adult admission: Free Hours: Tuesday through Saturday, 12pm to 5pm (gallery); building hours are variable Miami’s first proper skyscraper, Freedom Tower, was built in the mid-1920s. It housed the “Miami Daily News and Metropolis” (later “Miami News”) newspaper until the late 1950s, when it was briefly abandoned. In the early 1960s, the U.S. Government took over and turned the building into the “Ellis Island of the South.” Officially known as the Cuban Assistance Center, this was the central processing point for Cuban exiles and refugees fleeing the newly installed Castro regime.”
