    This is a fascinating place in Coconut Grove and full of history. Built in 1891 it is the oldest house in Miami Dade. It is free unless you take a tour and then it is only about $3. You can take a picnic and is not far from where the Hop On Hop Of bus stops.

    This is the place to see the Miami Heat basketball team in season. The venue is impressively big as you would expect. Parking on game days is not easy or cheap so take the metromover. Drinks are a bit on the expensive side too. When buying tickets if you want great ones expect to pay and you need to book, if you just want to see a great game and soak up the atmosphere then any seat will give you that.
