Aug 26, 2020 August 26, 2020

September marks the beginning of fall, and Miami knows how to kick-start the season with a calendar full of soulful things to do. While Spice lets you experience the best of comfort food in the city at a bargain, Spa Month allows you to follow up with world-class therapies from renowned establishments starting at major discounts. 

If you’re missing movies, have no fear! There are several drive-in movies and film festivals to choose from as Miamians welcome a respite from the heat, if just a few degrees. Better still, head outdoors for a breath of fresh air as part of a competitive trail festival or a relaxed evening by the Biscayne Bay. This is also the first time in 25 years that the International Ballet Festival will be broadcasting live and pre-recorded performances virtually. With plenty of things to do this month, both online and in person, here are the details to the top things to do in Miami this September -- events you’ll probably want to mark on your calendars:
