Memorial Day Weekend in Miami

Not only is Memorial Day a federal holiday dedicated to remembering those who gave their life while serving in the armed forces, it’s also the unofficial kick-off for summer vacation season. Even with our endless sunny skies, Miamians still celebrate Memorial Day weekend with a day at the beach, a classic barbecue or a family trip to one of the many local attractions Miami has to offer.  There are a number of ways to commemorate the three-day weekend.

This year, kick-off summer with a family-friendly weekend at the beach. While Miami Beach sets the stage for the 21+ crowd, families might want to head over the Rickenbacker Causeway to Virginia Key and Key Biscayne for more of a laid-back, kid-friendly vibe. Both islands offer a wide array of beach locales perfect for soaking up some sun. Key Biscayne is the home of Crandon Park Beach at the entrance to the island and Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park at the end. Both beaches are ideal for families and offer some of the most tranquil ocean views in the area. For the best vistas, climb to the top of the Cape Florida Lighthouse, originally built in 1825. Free guided tours are available Thursday through Monday at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. A day at the beach goes hand in hand when you soak up the sun in your 2017 Porsche 718 Boxster.
