Budget in Miami, taxes and tips
Miami counts among the most expensive cities, you might as well know. Aside from the price of fuel at the pump, everything is expensive and in particular the housing.
For example, a single bed in a youth hostel can reach $ 110 a night at certain times! It goes without saying that the amount of his stay can quickly reach astronomical sums, hence the need toanticipate by avoiding too busy periods, such as American vacations, major events, etc. And especially do it in advance !
Some hotels offer attractive non-refundable prices, which can be an interesting solution if you have your trip down to the millimeter and you are sure of your success!
Also see the Florida budget for price ranges, and US taxes and tips.
Pick up the free weekly New Times and the Miami Herald's Friday Supplement (for a fee), for the latest trending addresses and cultural events.
In the same vein, the Welcome brochure, available in all tourist places, provides a lot of useful information for tourists.

Drops, if not 23:30 p.m., runs every 20-25 minutes), which allow you to walk around the city of South Beach in Coconut Grove by looping through Wynwood and Design District, and all this without a loose purse.
Concerning museums, access to some (The Holocaust Memorial, The Bay of Pigs Museum and La Casa de Elian Gonzàles) is free every day. For others, many open their doors for free at a specific time of the week or month. For example,, The Wolfsonian is free on Fridays from 18 p.m., the Miami Art Museum (free all year round for children under 12) is also free for families from 13 p.m. to 16 p.m. on the 2nd Saturday of the month, Pérez Art Museum on the 1st Thursday and 2nd Saturday of the month, as for the Miami Children's Museum, it's the 3rd Friday of the month from 15 p.m. to 21 p.m.
Note that in May, the city is organizing Miami Museum Month. The concept is simple: one entry purchased, one entry free. About twenty museums and sites are participating, including the Miami Children's Museum, the Miami Auto Museum (private collection of usually overpriced cars), The Wolfsonian, Villa Vizcaya ...
Concerning galleries, access is obviously free. A ride in the Wynwood Art District and Design District will cost you nothing other than renting a bike if you don't opt for the free Trolley.
Same thing for the magnificent design hotels of the Art Deco District, whose common areas are freely accessible (except the swimming pool, anyway).
Finally, from October to May (one evening a week), a film (or, sometimes, an opera performance) is screened for free on the huge wall (The Wall) in the park of the New World Center (on Lincoln Road Mall ).
Otherwise, festivals, like the Viernes culturales in Little Havana (the evening of the last Friday of the month), are usually the occasion to attend a series of free events.
