Now that we are in full-blown summer mode there will be days that are total washouts and you won’t be able to spend the day on the beach. So what is there to do in Miami when it rains? I have put together a list for you to keep on hand whenever you need some indoor activities!
The Shops at Sunset Place
5701 Sunset Dr., Suite 202 | Miami, FL 33143
Who doesn't like to knock down some pins while sipping on a drink and wearing dorky bowling shoes? If you haven’t been to Splitsville then you have to check it out at least once. The cool thing about this place is that you won’t be munching on bowling alley food. Their food menu includes everything from tuna tataki to filet mignon for the big ballers. Every Tuesday you could bowl for $2 a game, per person, plus get $2 shoes from 4 p.m. to close!
Color Me Mine
The Shops at Sunset Place
5701 Sunset Dr. | Miami, FL 33143
I don't know about you but I am an arsty kinda girl. When you enter Color Me Mine you are greeted by tons of pottery that is ready to be painted. They have everything from ladybugs, plates, trays, vases, to little animals! And honestly, it is just as fun for adults as it is for kids. You pick the piece you want, pant it however you please, then you leave it there so they can fire it, and then you take it home. For adults they even have a night they call Diva Dish & Design where you get to paint while munching on cheese and chocolates!
Paragon Grove Movie Theater
3015 Grand Ave., Suite 322 | Coconut Grove, FL 33133
Who doesn't love to go to the movies while it’s raining? My favorite theater is definitely the Paragon Grove Theater for multiple reasons. The first and most important reason is that you can chose your own seats, basically you could show up five minutes before your movie starts and you will still be able to sit in the seats you chose the hour before online. Oh, and they have Pepsi. I am a Pepsi kinda girl ;)
Coral Cliffs Indoor Rock Climbing
3400 SW 26th Terr. #A4 | Ft. Lauderdale, FL 33312
Rock climbing is so much fun! Not only is it fun, it is also a great workout. When you get to Coral Cliffs for the first time they will set you up with an instructor to lead your though the basics of rock climbing before they let your run free in the gym. Once you are ready you can start exploring their 87 top-roped routes, 25 lead routes and then they have a few that are for the really advanced climbers.
Books & Books
265 Aragon Ave. | Coral Gables, FL 33134
This bookstore is one of my favorites in Miami. Not only do they have a great selection of books to choose from, but also the atmosphere is awesome. The Books & Books in Coral Gables was built in 1927 and is listed as on of Coral Gables Historic Places. Besides having 9,000 square feet worth of books they also have authors that come and visit to talk about their books in a small and intimate setting. They also host reading groups, poetry groups, free workshops and lectures, and special events. To see which authors are visiting click here.
