TimeOut Miami's Top Christmas Activities

"Despite all the usual stuff people like to do during winter in Miami—like bask on our beaches, eat out at the best Miami restaurants or enjoy the outdoors at Miami’s many beautiful parks—we’re not exempt from requiring a healthy dose of Christmas cheer each holiday season. What we lack in snow-covered rooftops, cozy fireplaces and hot toddy cocktails we more than make up for with endless rows of glittering palm trees and a bevy of festive events that kick off pretty much as soon as the last plate of turkey is cleared from the table. Whether you’re in the mood for an off-kilter take on a classic Christmastime play, a boozy pop-up full of Instagram-worthy photo opps or a family-friendly holiday market under the stars, Miami has it this year.
