Japanese Restaurant

“Zuma is one of the best-known fish and sushi restaurants of Miami. It has built a strong reputation due to the quality food they serve and the great service it provides. Sushi and Fish Tiraditos are the best dishes, but usually the servers can walk you through! Make sure to save some space for the Chocolate Hot Cake! This is probably one of the most expensive restaurants in the list, I would recommend this one for special occasions.”

“Downtown Miami is a busy shopping area with cultural and event venues. During the day, the open-air malls, department stores and jewelry shops are busy with foot traffic, while at night, crowds descend on the American Airlines Arena for Miami Heat basketball games and big-name concerts. The Adrienne Arsht Center hosts the Miami City Ballet and Florida Grand Opera, and the Pérez Art Museum Miami shows contemporary art.”

Spa
“One of my favorite yoga studios in Miami. They also do Barre and HIIT(which makes me throw up so I won't be joining you). You can sign up via ClassPass for a two-week trial and do classes for free - I believe I sent you all the email a while back. Located in the Epic hotel, they also have a cute spa and treatment room.”

Light Rail Station
“The metromover is free to use and takes you to many different stops in Downtown, as well as to the Government Station Metro Station. The metro is different from the metromover. It goes from North to South to many stops in Miami (not just Downtown) and it costs to use it - usually around $5/day.”
