Be amazed by Vizcaya Museum and GardensThis incredible site was built for millionaire bachelor James Deering in 1916.

After you’ve toured the villa, take a stroll around the landscaped gardens decorated with statues, fountains and lakes.Address: 3251 S Miami Ave, Miami, FL 33129Opening times: 9.30am – 4.30pmCost: $18last_img
