Sugar Factory is just steps from the beach on famous on Ocean Drive and it’s home to the best sugar rush in the Magic City.

These fish-bowl sized drinks come in a variety of flavors and are garnished with all manner of sweet treat. The shop is a hot spot for celebrities, especially with such a huge event going on in Miami! 

Vizcaya Museum and Gardens 

In 1914, James Deering built Vizcaya, a 43 acre estate just south of Downtown Miami. The grounds include a mansion, Italian-style garden and lagoon and has been the site of numerous Hollywood movie sets. Today, the estate is a museum and garden used to educate and inspire local students, tourists and anyone else who visits.
