About the Area - Things to Do in South Florida

If you’d like a little assistance in choosing or arranging activities, please visit Newport Beachside Hotel & Resort’s friendly Information Center. Our staff knows the area well and would love to help you plan a great vacation in paradise. Some of our suggestions are:

Everglades National Park
While you’re in South Florida, don’t miss the Everglades, world renowned for its unique ecosystem and endangered wildlife. The Shark Valley entrance is about an hour’s drive due west of our resort. Kids love this place and the price is family-friendly.

Miami Restaurants
You have to eat, but why choose the same old standards when Miami has so much more to offer? Check out Kitchen 305, one of Miami’s top-rated restaurants is right at our Lobby! You can also experience the culinary diversity of the area by trying Caribbean or Latin American food at one the city’s numerous fine dining establishments. If you’re traveling with children, we offer appropriate suggestions as well.

Miami Golf
Miami is a golfer’s paradise. Whether you are visiting on business or pleasure, let us help you find the golf experience that fits your schedule and style.

Miami Beaches
Florida is all about the beaches and Miami Beach offers something for everyone. Our favorite white sand strand, Sunny Isles Beach, is right outside our door. But if you’d like to venture out, let us point you in the direction that’s right for you.

Miami Shopping
Shop ’til you drop in and around Miami; you are in the middle of a shopper’s paradise! Stroll among the elegant designer boutiques of Bal Harbour; visit the upscale Aventura Mall, a shopping and dining destination; or enjoy a day at the factory outlets of Sawgrass Mills. Whatever your choice, we’ll advise you where to go and how to get there.

Miami Beach Watersports
Water, water everywhere and so many ways to enjoy it! Try snorkeling, scuba diving, jet skiing, sea kayaking or any other watersport you can imagine. We can help with all the arrangements.

Night Clubs in Miami
After the sun goes down, Miami, particularly South Beach, is nightlife central. So grab a bite, take a nap and get ready to party ’til dawn at our famous nightclubs. Conveniently, our own Kitchen 305 offers nightly, after-hours entertainment that is ranked among the best in Miami. There is also Ocean Drive after midnight, definitely one of those Miami experiences everyone should try at least once.
