How To Plan For Your Summer in Miami 2024

Miami’s much more than a snowbird escape in the winter months. The city is buzzing with great things to do. You’ll need to plan for your summer in Miami 2024 first, though.

Although many people think of Miami as a snowbird retreat from wintery northern states, the warmer months are not to be missed. As you’ll see, Summer in Miami 2024 will sizzle with more than the weather. Here’s how to plan for your Magic City summer vacation.

Book Your Miami Stay With MAK Realty

Many activities are taking place in Miami this summer, so it’s a good idea to book your accommodation, flights, car rentals, and trips before prices escalate. Don’t worry — MAK Realty can help—from a luxury suite at the Fontainebleau in the heart of Miami Beach or another of our top vacation-stay residences to car rentals, day trips, and reservations at restaurants, shows, clubs, and more — we’ve got your back.

Get Your Mind and Body Right

We won’t lie — Miami sizzles in the summer. Ninety-degree heat and high humidity mean that you need to condition yourself before you get here to prepare for the beaches and heading in and out of air-conditioned restaurants and shopping malls. Focus on healthy eating — plenty of fruits and vegetables and complex carbs and make sure you get some exercise in, too, because unless you want to stay inside, being outside means using up a lot of energy. Once you get to town, a tropical fruit smoothie will help you cool down.

Make a Wishlist…and Budget

Unless you’re a high roller with unlimited discretionary spending, it’s well worth making a wish list of things you want to do in Miami (see Messi play for Inter Miami, party at LIV, eat at Hakkasan, take a boat tour of the bay) and budgeting accordingly. However, there are some essentials that you won’t be able to do without, such as sunscreen, lip balm, moisturizer, and, of course, sunglasses.

Make a Plan of Free or Low Budget Events to Attend

Miami is one big festival or fun event to attend in the summer. Not all of them come with a huge price tag, either Here are a few things to consider:

  • The Wynwood Pride Festival
  • Miami Salsa Festival
  • International Ballet Festival
  • Miami Swim Week
  • Florida Supercon
  • Miami International Auto Show
  • The South Beach Mango Festival
  • Fire on the 4th of July at the Miami Beach Bandshell
  • Rolling Loud Festival and Other Summer Concerts

Other events

  • Sports (Miami Marlins, Inter Miami)
  • Live Theater at the Adrienne Arsht Center
  • The Calida Rawles: Away With the Tides at PAMM

Plan Your Miami Must-Visit Restaurants

Miami is a foodie town. Its tropical climate and coastal location mean you can find restaurants to suit every palate, covering cuisines from around the globe. Whether you want to visit the hottest new eateries in town or try some of the city’s much-loved vegan, farm-to-table, or Kosher favorites, Miami won’t disappoint.

Download a Few Apps To Help You Navigate the City

Get Your Miami Summer Concert Tickets in Advance

  • Blink 182 (June 21) 
  • Feid (July 6th)

Final Thoughts

Global cities such as Miami never sleep. If you’re worried about heat and humidity, there are plenty of beaches and pools to cool off in. If you prefer to stay in your clothes — you’re spoiled for choice with air-conditioned upscale shopping, malls, art galleries, restaurants, and more. And if you want to mix it up with a little of everything, Miami is a city that’s hard to beat.
