Living in or simply visiting Miami can get pretty expensive pretty quick. While the city is gorgeous and there is always something to do, many of these activities come with a hefty price tag. Sure, luxury hotels, fine dining, and 24/7 parties are great, but sometimes we need to budget ourselves.
Luckily, there are still plenty of totally free things to do in the 305. Some of these are pretty well-known activities, like spending a day on world-famous South Beach. Taking a day on the beach can also entail some budget-friendly activities, like having a picnic, swimming, riding bikes, jogging, or even building sandcastles.
Then of course there are a number of beautiful parks in the Magic City. Among the best are Tropical Park, A.D. Barnes Park, Peacock Park, the list goes on. At these parks, visitors can do everything from enjoy the playgrounds with their children to playing baseball, basketball, or soccer, or enjoying a quiet stroll.
Miami also has a large network of libraries at which visitors can go and read, write, and learn. Free programming at the libraries includes storytimes for kids, book clubs, and occasional cultural programming.
Then of course there are plenty of free museum days to choose from (just check museum websites for info or pick up a free museum pass from your local library).
