Scenic lookouts

Park
“A big public park on the edge of Biscayne Bay. In addition to being a perfectly pleasant place to chill out and read a book, Bayfront often hosts concerts at its amphitheater, music festivals and other outdoor events. There’s not a ton of green space in Downtown Miami—and there’s nothing as pretty as Bayfront, especially during a sunset.”
