Soak Up the Sun
Splish-splash those summer sweats away. Grab your favorite people and plunge into the unforgettable Venetian Pool in Coral Gables. This exciting location is much more than just a playful park. It’s extravagant style seeps through every carefully carved coral rock in this luxurious location. Learn about the history that took place on the very spot you are standing. Drench your family and friends in the 820,000-gallon pool filled with natural spring water from an underground aquifer. Swiftly swim under the whispering waterfalls, and of course lackadaisically lie under the summer sun while taking in the astounding scenery of the cave-like grottos.
Kick Ball and Chain
Get ready to have a ball! Save the dates, September 1st- 3rd and September 14th on your calendar. First, to kick off your Labor Day weekend, attend the 82nd anniversary of Ball and Chain with their 3rd Annual 3-day Music Festival. During this lively weekend, broad ranges of music from Cuban Jazz and Latin Pop, to Afro-Cuban Funk will be featured, along with over 100 critically acclaimed musicians and DJs. The other affair taking place at Ball and Chain on September 14th is the karaoke-themed event, Battioke 2017. Brace yourselves for some fun embarrassment while singing your heart out in benefit of The Battier Take Charge Foundation. This extraordinary event hosts celebrities and athletes for an evening filled with fun, good vibes, and money raised for college scholarships.
Prepare to experience the nature of the local exotic wilderness like you never have before. Sit back and relax on an airboat ride through the Everglades as a guide sharpens your knowledge on the native wildlife. While you cruise through the glades, don’t be alarmed as crocodiles, alligators, snakes and more; slyly creep up from behind or around you. If you’re still feeling brave after the eventful ride, enjoy an alligator exhibit at the Everglades Alligator Farm. As soon as you’re done, it really will be fitting to say, “See ya later Alligator!” However, if it really did scare you a little too much, there is always “In a WHILE Crocodile!”
Faster and Farther
On your marks, get set…Go! Board the speedboat, Thriller and race across the Miami coastline on an exhilarating tour. As you ride through the placid waves of the bright blue sparkling sea, check out the magnificent mansions along the bay. Don’t forget to look down into the ocean to witness wonderful sea animals. The Miami Speedboat Tour is the only boat tour that gives you an offshore experience that covers three times the area as other tour vessels. So slip into those swimsuits and be ready to spend your day getting wet and wild!
