Miami’s sunshine and beaches are what draws people to the city, but us locals know that for every day of sun and summer fun, it rains almost just as much, if not more especially during the rainy season. While rain can be a bummer for plans outside, there are plenty of things to do indoors. So bring your ‘day-walker’ ginger friend along and leave the sunscreen at home.
Duh. This one is pretty simple, right? Making a whole day out of a seeing a movie is something reserved for the premier of a special film these days. For me, it’s any Star Wars movie. I know, I know, nerdy but ‘to you, good advice I give’! A lunch date and a movie is one way to keep yourself entertained on a rainy day. Not into spending your life savings on concession stand candy? Stay home and catch up on some new Netflix shows. Check out our "Shows, movies & Viral Vids" blog.
Sometimes we get so caught up in how strong our selfie game that we forget there’s more out there than just clubs, bars and beaches. Miami is home to a number of different museums including Pérez Art Museum, HistoryMiami Downtown, and my personal favorite the World Erotic Art Museum. Get some culture and learn something new at one of these remarkable museums. They are all relatively cheap and offer hours of entertainment. If you go to the World Erotic Art Museum with your lover, make sure you have a fast way to get home. I don’t think your Uber driver will appreciate your PDA in the backseat.
Paniq Escape Room
Now, if you have a group of people sitting around bored waiting to go out, don’t waste your time googling something to do. Book a room at the Paniq Escape Room. Never heard of it? The Paniq Escape Rooms started in Hungary and quickly made their way West, and Miami is lucky enough to host such a place. The idea behind the escape room is to work with a group as a team to figure out a way out of a room. Live entertainment and positive thinking collide in this rainy day excursion. Just don’t watch Saw before you go.
Obviously sleeping is always an option. The night before, you and your friends got a bottle and danced the night away until the wee hours of the morning. Your one friend that somehow always has “energy” texts you in the morning to get brunch and drinks. You can either repeat the night before or you can opt to get some rest. Far often than not, most Miami residents suffer terribly from FoMo. However, sleep is much more valuable and wallet-friendly than anything else so why not take some naps on a rainy day to help the hours go by faster.
Whether you sleep, stay in and binge Netflix, or go on an adventure to escape a room with a group of people, there is always something to do in Miami. Saying you’re bored is just an excuse. Get out an experience life to the fullest and have fun while trying something new.
