What to do and see in Miami Springs, United States: The Best Places and Tips

September 5, 2017 Lashaunda Abraham

Miami Springs is a city located in Miami-Dade County, Florida. The city was founded by Glenn Hammond Curtiss, "The Father of Naval Aviation", and James Bright, during the famous "land boom" of the 1920s and was originally named Country Club Estates. It, along with other cities in Miami-Dade County such as Coral Gables, Florida and Opa-locka, Florida, formed some of the first planned communities in the state. Like its counterparts, the city had an intended theme which in its case, was to reflect a particular architecture and ambiance.

Bayside Marketplace

Large waterfront shopping, entertainment and dining area.

Reviewed By Christene545 - Columbus, Ohio

Lively open air marketplace with lots of bars and restaurants. There's shopping as well. But from what I saw it does not appear as though people go there for the shopping. Loved the live Latin music and the food. Ate at Latin American Cuban Cuisine and it was wonderful. My husband got a Cuban sandwich and I got grilled fish with moros and cassava (both sides are a must!). We then took an evening Millionaire's Row sightseeing cruise. The homes and yachts were ridiculously beautiful. We only had one evening to spend in Miami before leaving for our cruise the next morning and I'm very happy with our choice. The only reason I gave it 4 stars was due to our experience with taxis. Beware of being overcharged because you are a tourist! Negotiate a fare upfront.

Amelia Earhart Park

This park is packed with interesting activities, including a petting zoo, a beach, bike trails and picnic facilities.

We saw all kind of lizards and water turtles but the park itself was deserted as it was Monday morning out season. The park is nice and big but it is not clean at all and look like no one handle it at all.

I was expecting the usual character driven actors playing roles, but this was more of an interactive experience. Like a comedy, improv show mixed with a game of "who dun it". It was fun and very entertaining. Our table actually "bonded" if you can call...MoreWandermom, So glad you had a great experience and bonded with your table mates. We really appreciate you taking the time to share your review!

We attended a wedding of my friend's daughter and we thought it was the most solemn and well prepared mass and ceremony. The church and grounds were well maintained and there was adequate parking space in the vicinity.

Curtiss Mansion

Reviewed By ARodriguezP - Miami, Florida

This home located on the edge of the beautiful Miami Springs Country Club golf course was the one time home of aviator Glenn Hammond Curtiss. Never heard of him? Well "google" his name and you'll be surprised at how instrumental this man was to modern day aviation. Not only was he an aviation pioneer and inventor but also the developer who was responsible for the Greater Miami communities of Miami Springs, Hialeah and Opa-Locka.
The home which has been beautifully restored to its' original 1920s glory can be best described as being built in the Pueblo/Mission Revival style of architecture reminiscent of the American Southwest. This style was a favorite of Mr.Curtiss and can be seen in a few other homes and buildings in the Miami Springs area. Tours of the home are currently conducted on Saturday mornings at 10am for a fee. My recent experience while touring the mansion was quite interesting and made all the more enjoyable by tour guides Buzz Fleischman and Cathy Doyle. Their enthusiasm and dedication in explaining the home's history and Mr. Curtiss's life and times was quite infectious and kept us entertained during the approximately 1 hour tour.
I would definitely recommend attending one of their Saturday tours for anyone interested not only in local Miami history and beautiful architecture but also interested Glenn Curtiss's incalculable contribution to aviation.

Wynwood Walls

Open to the public, free of charge the Wynwood Walls was established in 2009 by the legendary placemaker and visionary Tony Goldman as an outdoor museum of international street art. Since the first year's program - featuring Kenny Scharf, Futura, Os Gemeos, Swoon, Shepard Fairey, and other renowned innovators in street art, Wynwood Walls has become a phenomenon, spurring the creation of murals throughout the Wynwood district. It is now one of the best venues in the world to see the work of leading street artists. In 2010, the adjacent Wynwood Doors, with 176 feet of roll-up storefront gates was added and most recently the Wynwood Walls Garden, an open green space featuring five murals was included in the space. Each year, a selection of international artists - that range from old school graffiti artists to newer innovators- have created artwork for the Wynwood Walls. In 2012, Wynwood Walls celebrated Art Basel with a series of events dedicated to the vision of Tony Goldman who passed that September. Since that time, the project has been curated by Tony's daughter, Goldman Properties CEO Jessica Goldman Srebnick. Miami's now world renowned open air "museum of the streets" continues to attract visitors from around the world and currently encompasses more than 40 dazzling, cutting-edge murals created by respected street artists from Asia, Europe, Latin America and the United States.

There are walls all over Wynwood, however some of the best murals were saw were in this actual space. There is a variety with themes differing from politics to simply cool designs! And every wall was another great opportunities for photos. I liked the galleries that were mixed in along the way as there were some cool exhibitions to see. Definitely not something to miss in Miami.

I love this store! Way more chic than any other antique store I've been in. I bought some very unique brass lion doorknobs here, and a beautiful vintage cape. So excited that I'm buying a house now so I can fill it with things from this awesome store.

Reviewed By odh2014 - Woodbury, Connecticut

We just drove around. It was an unusual area: artsy and scary at the same time.There was a police car in almost every corner. Young crowd. This is not our scene but maybe we’ll go during the day next time we visit Miami.
