When it comes to finding fun things to do, North Miami is full of them! Everywhere you turn there’s something to keep boredom at bay, whether it’s a stunning theatrical performance or an adrenaline-pumping theme park. We’ve uncovered the best of North Miami entertainment, from stage performances to theme parks.
Wynwood Art Walk
Some of the best North Miami entertainment is free, as is the case with the monthly Wynwood Art Walk. Listen to music spun by local DJs as you take in blocks upon blocks of the colorful murals that line the streets. Stroll by the street vendors that are selling cool crafts and clothing made by Miami artisans. Settle in and take on the reigning beer pong champ or play Giant Jenga with friends while savoring a craft cocktail or street food from a local food truck.
If it’s a good belly laugh you’re after, then head on over to Villain Theater. The comedy theater hosts a number of laugh-out-loud performances ranging from open mics to celebrity stand-up shows. Each Saturday, a featured Miami celebrity tells hilarious stories that the Villain cast then turns into short scenes. Stick around for the grand finale: the completely improvised musical, “Miami Noise Machine!”
The trendy Microtheatre puts on short, one-act plays in small spaces. See what the fuss is all about at the Centro Cultural Espanol Downtown as they perform in colorfully-designed spaces that only seat 15 people. Some of the shows are in English while others are in Spanish so check the language first before buying your tickets.
Adrienne Arsht Center
Catch a show at the Adrienne Arsht Center for some of the best North Miami entertainment. Performances feature the best local, national and international artists and span all genres from opera to dance. The world-class Center offers several Signature Series, including a major annual Flamenco Festival as well as the largest jazz series in South Florida.
Let your inner kid out to play at Dezerland Park, Miami’s largest indoor theme park. Electric go-carts, a virtual reality arena and a parkour space are just a few of the many attractions available in the park. You can pay for each attraction individually, or grab an all-access pass to sample everything the park has to offer.
Enjoy Miami’s beautiful tropical landscape and get up-close-and-personal with a jungle full of animals from around the world at Jungle Island. The eco-adventure theme park is home to two rare twin orangutans and over 300 birds, including the world’s only trained Cassowary. If simply seeing these amazing animals isn’t enough for you, the park offers fun interactive experiences such as a lemur meet-and-greet, ziplining and a mind-bending escape room challenge.
Frost Museum of Science
The Frost Museum of Science is a planetarium, aquarium and science museum in downtown Miami. The museum boasts an Instagram-ready aquarium that holds sharks, rays and other tropical fish. It also has an impressive replica of the Everglades and a massive planetarium where you can watch laser shows on the weekend. The Design Lab invites you to race toy bobsleds and challenges you to think differently with tasks like making the letter T out of random shapes.
Gulfstream Racing and Casino Park
Visit one of the most beautiful horse tracks in America at Gulfstream Racing and Casino Park. Try your luck and play the ponies for two of the most exciting minutes in sports. If you’re not into betting, the casino offers many other options including bowling, shopping, dining and special North Miami entertainment, including Friday Night Live concerts.
The Casino Dania Beach
Take an evening and head to The Casino Dania Beach to witness the fastest game played by mankind! Bet on athletes as they hurl a ball at a wall at over 200 miles an hour. The casino also offers a Vegas-style experience with slot machines, Blackjack, Roulette and Craps in addition to many concerts and events including free salsa and bachata classes every Thursday.
