Day/Evening in Miami and Day Trip on Overseas Highway

Jump to last reply

After coming back from a cruise - we (wife, 4 yr son, me) will have little less than 2 days to spend in the Miami area before our return flight. I am looking for advice for free or inexpensive activities to while away our time:

We will be driving our rental car from Port Canaveral to the Miami area so will have an afternoon and evening to spend in Miami before checking into a hotel. We could also check in first if hotel is close by to places that are recommended. Can someone suggest safe places to check out around Downtown Miami etc? We are looking for fun/culture and interesting places to "hang out" without spending too much money except for food and parking. Something on the lines of Fanneiul Hall area in Boston or the Pier in SFO or Chicago for example....Any recommendations?

Day 2:
On the second day we plan to take a drive on the Overseas Highway. I heard it is beautiful, but I definitely will not have time to go all the way to Key West because I have a 8pm flight from FLL so have to be back by 5pm or so. What's the least distance from the Miami we have to drive on the highway and can still take in the beauty of the "drive"? Are there any mile markers or towns at least to which we should try and drive to before heading back, let's say after lunch?

Finally, if it makes it any easier to suggest what we are looking for, we are already planning a trip to Everglades the day before our cruise. We are vegetarians and also we do not drink, so suggestions like seafood, etc will not work for us. :(

Looking forward to your feedback, thanks!
