Mega Yacht Or Speedway? Find An Independence Day Celebration To Match Your Speed

Mega Yacht Or Speedway? Find An Independence Day Celebration To Match Your Speed

Jun 19, 2015 June 19, 2015

On Independence day, we celebrate breaking out from under the spell of tyranny and what nicer place to commemorate our independence than in Magic City. Whether you’d like to hit up a parade, fill up on specials, jive to live music or chase after fireworks on a cruise, Miami has the best Independence Day fix for you.

We looked into some tried and true family-friendly Independence Day celebrations in Miami:

Key Biscayne 4th of July Parade – Begin the day on an inspirational note with red-white-and-blue floats, marching bands, jets flying overhead and loads of cheer from Harbor Drive to West Enid Drive. The parade starts around 11 and is free to attend, so grab your spot early on.

Miami Beach Fire On The Fourth Festival – This all-day celebration treats you to live music, rocking DJs, scrumptious food trucks and yoga to limber up for nighttime fireworks. Head over to North Shore Park Bandshell, Collins Avenue and 73rd Street to enjoy this 11 to 9 festival for free.

America’s Birthday Bash At Bayfront Park – One of the largest firework displays in the city, this bayside bash is a must-see. What more could you ask for when you have live music, a beer garden, a kids’ zone, fantastic food and 30 minutes of bedazzling fireworks mirrored in the nighttime Bay waters. While the park opens at 10 a.m., most of the festivities begin by 2 p.m. and are free.

Coconut Grove 4th Of July Celebrations – This old-fashioned picnic requires ticket purchase and encourages you to bring your own basket or get your lunch from the Barnacle Society with live music, games, kids’ crafts and a scavenger hunt for fun. Hosted from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Barnacle Historic State Park at 3485 Main Highway in Coconut Grove, we recommend hanging around a little longer for the free firework display at Peacock Park, from 5 to 9 with free ice-cream, balloon animals, face painting as well as a ton of free patriotic art activities.

City Of Homestead “Race to the 4th” at Miami Speedway – This free event is more of a community tradition with live music, mechanical rides for the kids, fabulous food, drink and game as well as fireworks to top it all. Hosted at the Homestead Miami Speedway, One Speedway Blvd, catch the fun from 6-10 p.m.

July 4th Fireworks Yacht Party – Looking for a luxurious retreat? There’s no better way to experience the fireworks than atop the $35 million luxury mega-yacht, Seafair Miami. With tickets costing upward of $100, this evening affair will treat you to a four-hour premium open bar, full dinner buffet as well as entertainment by the best local DJs.

While the above listing features annual events, do check 2015 schedules for any changes before finalizing your plans.

Miami Condos with Shabbat Elevators
Real Estate News Miami Condos with Shabbat Elevators
Last updated June 11, 2021. Whether you refer to it as the Sabbath, Shabbat, Shabbos, or by any other term, your religious commitment to observing a holy day of rest should not prevent you from enjoying a luxury condo lifestyle in the subtropical paradise that is Miami.  For this reason, a number of condo communities provide the convenience of a Shabbat or Sabbath elevator, which is a specially programmed elevator that stops automatically on every floor during the Jewish Sabbath, from sundown on Friday evening until sundown on Saturday of every week.  This service is provided in order to accommodate the Jewish religious law that prohibits religious observers from pushing buttons or operating machinery during the Sabbath. While Miami today is known as a particularly Jewish-friendly metropolis, Jews were not even allowed to enter Miami Beach Hotels until the late 1940s. But by the 1950s they began to lay down roots in Miami Beach and to impact the economy, politics, and social flavor...

Real Estate News The Top 10 Tallest Buildings in Miami (You Can Live In)
If you’ve been visiting Miami over the years, one thing you’ve probably noticed is the buildings keep getting taller, and the skyline keeps growing.

Every few months, a new condo tower is announced with ambitions of becoming one of Miami’s tallest buildings.  Call them #supertowers, #supertalls, or #skyscrapers, they’re definitely building the city’s skyline, reputation, and luxury living to new heights.

Brickell Avenue Bridge Schedule, Traffic and Solutions -- All You Need To Know
Transportation Brickell Avenue Bridge Schedule, Traffic and Solutions -- All You Need To Know
Ever tried driving from Brickell to Downtown Miami for lunch? Most Miamians dread the thought of catching the dreaded Brickell Avenue bridge, a drawbridge that opens every hour or half-hour during non-curfew hours to allow river and traffic and boats to pass under.  * This article was updated on June 7, 2021 So what’s the problem? A big one! When the bridge opens, it ends up turning the city into a parking lot. With the last two building booms, there’s been a sudden surge in Downtown population since 2010 that has not stopped, and hence, denser traffic. And with Brickell now one of Miami’s hottest neighborhoods, serving as Miami’s vital financial hub, dense residential condo neighborhood and go-to place for nightlife, travel to and from Brickell and Downtown Miami is unavoidable.  This is why almost every second year, the FDOT faces requests to place restrictions on opening the bridge for maritime traffic during rush hour or extending curfew hours. However, listen to the marine...
