Everything that makes Miami so appealing seems to converge at South Pointe Park.

Popular with locals but lesser known to visitors, this park sits right at the southern tip of Miami Beach, where the ocean meets the bay. Its location means can you watch big ships head in and out of the Port of Miami, or turn inland for quick access to the historic Art Deco district.

Or, you can to do what I do and strap on some skates to explore the park itself. After a multi-million-dollar renovation, South Pointe Park may just be the most exciting urban oasis in the city.
