Summer is in full swing on South Beach, and if you had fun on the 4th of July, you haven’t seen anything yet. The city of Miami has plenty of fun lined up for the month of July, making South Florida a great place to be. In addition to some of the great activities you can do in Miami on a daily basis, here are five awesome events you have to check out in July.
Miami Spa Month, All July and August
Miami is a great place to go to pamper yourself, so much so that the city’s spa month actually lasts for two full months. Anywhere you go on South Beach, there will be places where you can get all kinds of body scrubs, massages, facials, and more, so during the months of July and August, take advantage of it. There will be special deals and packages available at spas throughout Miami over the next two months, and you’d be foolish not to treat yourself to a day of getting pampered at one of Miami’s world-class spas.
Cirque Eloize Cirkopolis, July 7 – 31
If you enjoy truly unique forms of entertainment, you have to check out Cirque Eloize Cirkopolis, which will be at the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts on Biscayne Boulevard for most of July. The show combines elements of dance, theater, and the circus to create a spectacular acrobatic display that will have your jaw on the floor. The reviews of the show have been fantastic, and this is definitely something you won’t want to miss.
Disney’s The Little Mermaid Makes A Splash on Stage, July 8 – August 7
If you liked the movie The Little Mermaid (and let’s be honest, we all did), you’ll want to see the stage show. You’ll get to hear all of your favorite songs that will guarantee that you start feeling nostalgic about the movie. Tickets are quite affordable, making it the perfect way to spend an evening with your family, hopefully exposing your kids to the wonder that is The Little Mermaid.
International Mango Festival, July 9 – 10
On the surface, this may not seem like one of the most exciting festivals there is, but if you’ve ever tasted a mango, you know that they’re one of the best tasting fruits in the world, and that’s a good enough reason to check out the International Mango Festival. There are plenty of activities and tastings happening at the festival, involving both mangos and other fruits. There will be plenty of entertainment for kids, so it’s an event the whole family can enjoy. The festival is being held at the Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden in Coral Gables, which is one of the largest and most picturesque parks in South Florida, meaning there’s very little downside to checking out the International Mango Festival.
Miami Spice Iron Fork Kick Off Event, July 28
If you consider yourself or foodie, or even if you just find yourself watching the Food Channel on a regular basis, this event is for you. It gives you the chance to watch some of South Florida’s best chefs engage in a cook-off against one another. If that’s not enough, you’ll also be able to sample food from over 70 Miami area restaurants, giving you a good idea of where to eat the next time you go out. It’s a three-hour event and general admission tickets are just $45, and if you get there on time you can fit a lot of food and fun into those three hours.
