What to do for Labor Day in Miami Beach

Miami Beach is the place to be on Labor Day!

Spending Labor Day in Miami Beach lets you choose from a wide range of exciting activities and world-class venues. To enjoy easy access to the best of what Miami has to offer, stay at the Beacon Hotel on Ocean Drive. We welcome you to relax in our luxurious oceanfront accommodations and make the most of our prime location in the heart of South Beach.

Miami Spice in full Effect

Our first suggestion for the holiday weekend is Miami Spice. In this famous dining event, which lasts until the end of September, many of the best restaurants in the area offer discounts on multi-course meals. Some of the participating restaurants are right here in South Beach. Many others are located in nearby neighborhoods. Enjoy exquisite dishes from a variety of cuisines.

For a memorable outdoor trip, we recommend Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park on Key Biscayne, where you can enjoy biking, kayaking, hiking, and fishing. There are also plenty of outdoor activities within walking distance of our South Beach hotel. Our guests receive chairs and towels before heading out for hours of relaxation on the beach. We also suggest biking on the Miami Beach boardwalk and exploring the Art Deco District, which is on the National Register of Historic Places. Our Art Deco hotel is just one of hundreds of buildings in the neighborhood shaped by this uniquely beautiful architectural style.

Pool parties are a popular part of Miami Labor Day celebrations. One well-known example is the Rubber Duckie Pool Party hosted by Duffy’s Sports Grill. Attendees enjoy electronic dance music, fun on the pool deck, and the presence of a huge inflatable duck.

Labor Day is an opportunity to experience live music virtually round-the-clock. With its numerous bars and clubs, our neighborhood is famous for its nightlife. You can also venture out to one of the major music events scheduled over the holiday weekend. These include 37 Years of Churchill’s, the Ball and Chain Music Festival, and the Afro Roots World Music Festival.

The local area is home to many boutique stores and upscale shopping venues. Lincoln Road Mall gives you a mile of outdoor shopping along a beautiful promenade. Peek into art galleries, try on fashionable clothes, and enjoy fine food and drinks at one of the bars or restaurants.

Different cultural venues are open for Labor Day. The Vizcaya Museum and Gardens invites visitors for a stroll outdoors and a chance to savor the magnificent art that it displays inside an Italian villa. The Pérez Art Museum, which focuses on international modern art, exhibits hundreds of pieces. Its collections include sculptures arranged outdoors in a lovely garden.

People who love wildlife and nature will be happy to know that the Miami Seaquarium is open throughout the weekend. Swim with dolphins and seals, explore a reef, and observe manatees and crocodiles. Jungle Island is another popular option. Visitors encounter leopards, lions, orangutans, alligators, and iguanas. They can also scale the towers and cliffs of the Rainforest Riptide, an enormous floating playground located at Parrot Cove Beach. Adventure-seekers may want to try the Aqua-Jet Experience, which will make them fly dozens of feet over the water.

Don’t pass up the chance to spend Labor Day in Miami Beach. Our hotel will place you at the heart of all the action. At the same time, we’ll give you opportunities to relax in elegance and style. Let us know how we can help make your holiday weekend amazing.
