Miami is a classic place for a Bachelorette party, and while you can spend all your time at the clubs, there is so much more to do beyond the nightlife. Check out the artistic neighborhood of Wynwood, get on a boat and check out Biscayne Bay, and eat at some delicious restaurants.

Things to do in Miami
Home of the festival Art Basel, Miami has an unusual and fun art scene. One of the most well known museums is the Perez Art Museum, Miami (PAMM) which features modern, contemporary, and international art. The very fun and Instagram famous exhibition from Yayoi Kusama is on through February 2024.
There is also a big street art scene in Miami, the pinnacle being Wynwood Walls. It's an unusual museum that features street artists and modern art. You can then walk around the Wynwood neighborhood and see other street art and plenty of yummy food places, like Zak the Baker.
For a non-traditional museum, visit the Vizcaya Museum, which is a historical mansion and gardens. It's the former mansion of businessman James Deering. The architecture and gardens are in the Italian style. You could spend several hours exploring the grounds and admiring the house's style.
The best way to get a taste of Little Havana is to take a walking tour. Most tours of the neighborhood will take you to a cigar rolling shop, give you the history of the neighborhood, and make sure you taste some Cuban food and drink, like a Cuban coffee. It's possible to just wander Calle Ocho yourself, too, grabbing a drink at Cafe La Trova and stopping by Cigar Boutique of Little Havana to see them hand roll cigars.
Beach and Cruise
Miami's water is crystal clear blue. Celebrate your bride with either a beach day or a catamaran cruise out to the bay. Anywhere along South Beach can be a good place to post up and have fun. There are several locations that will rent out chairs if your hotel does not.
For catamaran cruises, you can go with a larger group or book a private captain option. On the organized cruises, you will be with other people and depending on the package, snacks or alcohol may be included. On the private option, you can bring your own food and drinks, as the captains usually include several coolers to keep the drinks cold. I recommend looking on GetMyBoat.Com to look for private boats for hire!
Miami has some classic drag shows that bring out all the flair. The most famous one is Palace - it's right across the beach, and onlookers gather to watch the ladies strut, dance, and perform to the music. The price of admission includes food, and it's better than you would expect.
Places to eat & drink in Miami
You could spend your Bachelorette in Miami just focusing on the food. The food scene is fun and inventive, but not particularly cheap. Getting out of South Beach and into Brickell and Wynwood will open a whole other world of food where locals go to eat.
Many of the trendier restaurants in Miami will require prix fixe menus for larger groups like Bachelorette parties and these can be pricey ($70 and up each, often without alcohol). This can be great for one fancy dinner, but could be hard for those with differing dietary needs.
Here are some places that I recommend:
Mandolin Aegean Bistro: Beautiful and delicious - you will feel transported to Greece in this restaurant, with bougainvillea all over the walls. Book outside to enjoy the courtyard.
Broken Shaker: Inside the Freehand Miami hotel, sit by the pool and sip delicious cocktails with your friends. This works for a pre-dinner cocktail, as there is plenty of seating and shade.
27 Restaurant & Bar: Tucked next to the Broken Shaker, this makes for a yummy restaurant that won't break the bank. New American food, with plenty of seafood and non-seafood options.
Amara at Paraiso: Amara is in Edgewater and overlooks the bay versus the beach. Seafood forward with a Latin flare.
Joe's Stone Crab: If you are going to go to a seafood focused place in South Beach, this is it. It's been around since 1913, and its reputation continues.
Rusty Pelican: This is a bit harder to access, but the views are worth it alone - then you add in the food. It's more upscale and also does brunch.
Terras: The only rooftop in Little Havana that serves up cold drinks in a lush atmosphere. Stop here after exploring the area.
