Some places don’t immediately spring to mind when it comes to budget travel, the city of Miami being one of them. However, that doesn’t mean that you can’t take a break there without breaking the budget. In fact, to help you will find some advice below.
Appreciate the architecture for nothing.
One of the most remarkable things about Miami is the gorgeous art deco style buildings that are so common there. In fact, it is these types of property that have become synonymous with the region.
Of course, the best thing about this architecture is that you can experience it for no money at all! After all, it doesn’t cost anything to educate yourself on the best places to see such building like Ocean Drive and South Beach and then take yourself on a self-guided walking tour.
OK, so you may have to splash out for a cup of coffee at one of the bars or restaurant if you want to take rest during your walk, or even treat yourself to a nice cold drink at somewhere like Panther Coffee. However, that shouldn’t cost you too much and will make sure that you enjoy your architectural tour without breaking the bank.
Find accommodation that doesn’t cost the earth.
While there are some pretty swanky hotels in Miami, there are also some places that you can stay for a reasonable price too. In fact, around this location, you can even find campsites like the Miami Everglades RV Resort for as little as $68 per night, and some sites even allow you to bring your own tent and will charge even less!
Soak up some sun and live the beach life.
Next, when it comes to enjoying Miami for the least amount of cash possible, a fantastic way to spend your days is to head to the beach. Of course, Miami has several famous beaches including South Beach, Lummus Park Beach and even South Pointe Park Pier. The latter having a picnic ground, kids play areas and even a fishing pier that guests can use.
Another way that you can enjoy the coastal beach life is to check out the prices and any special offer on boats for rent in the Miami area. Something that many people mistakenly think is very expensive, but can actually work out pretty reasonable when splitting the cost between a group.
Get your culture fix for less.
Finally, if you are looking to experience the best that Miami has to offer, without splashing the cash then visiting some of their cultural hotspots is a smart choice.
In particular, make sure to visit Pérez Art Museum Miami or PAM as its known. There you will find some stunning exhibitions including painting, photography, and sculpture, all for a low price of $16 pp.
Of course, with so much on offer, you can easily make a day of it, and if you take a packed lunch along with you that you can enjoy in the grounds of the museum its possible to have a fantastic day in the Miami location for very little money.
