Fall In Love At Miami's 10 Most Romantic Attractions And Activities

It's not hard to fall in love in Miami. People do it all the time. Locals meet someone at their office, maybe start enjoying a 3:05 p.m. colada with them, and suddenly they're having drinks back at their place. Or they find each other online and decide to take a chance by meeting at LIV for a Diplo show and the next thing they know they're making plans to spend the weekend together at Ultra. 

The tourists, they often bump into each other while running in and out of the hostels on Ocean Drive, which leads to a day of swimming and a night of cocktails on the roof of some hotel. The Magic City is magic for a reason, after all.

We've compiled a list of places you might want to go to, or things you might want to do, if you're in the mood for romance. Some are low-key while others are meant for high-adrenaline love. There are gorgeous gardens like the Kampong, relaxing parks like South Pointe, and lively yet still romantic performances at joints like the Arsht Center and the New World Symphony at the New World Center. Go through the list and choose your next date wisely. It could become the one that never ends.
