Rafting
“While biking the 15 miles of off-road bicycling trails or paddling along lush mangrove forests on the Oleta River, it is difficult to believe Oleta River State Park exists in the shadow of downtown Miami. At just over a thousand acres, this natural oasis—Florida’s largest urban park—is a haven for mountain bikers, paddlers, anglers, swimmers and for families out to enjoy a picnic along scenic Biscayne Bay.  Feel free to release yourself from the stress of the city at one of the picnic areas or unwind at the end of a fishing pole.”

“I have enjoyed walking my dog over to the cafe at 8a when they open and sitting in their lovely covered patio (located next to the Contemporary Art Museum). Food is very good, but service can be unreliable. One more than one occasion I've had my order taken and not seen from the server again, even after food was delivered. On one such occasion the runner delivered the wrong food, so I waited to see the server but it was taking so long I decided to eat what was in front of me. The server was clueless and didn't understand why I wouldn't want to pay the full price for what I ordered but did not get. Therefore, ask to be seated in Lucia's section to ensure more reliable service.”
