Vizcaya is Open? Yep! Check out these Fun Things to Do in June

May 28, 2020 May 28, 2020

For almost two months, Miami hasn’t been quite itself due to the coronavirus outbreak. We’ve missed all the fun events that put the magic in the Magic City. Thankfully, beginning May, the city has started to reopen (including restaurants at 50% capacity and the beaches), and we’re so glad to see some of our favorite hotspots either opening up or gearing up to open in June.

So, for our monthly event roundup this time, we’ve got a mixed bag of virtual events as well as in-person events. Here’s looking at the things you can do (online or on the ground) in Miami for the month of June:

Virtual Events

here, or keep an eye out for when other in-person events come back up here.


O Cinema South Beach: Continuing into June

Zoo Miami: June 1 onwards

12400 SW 152nd St., South Miami

Zoo Miami


If a visit to the zoo is part of your summer holiday tradition, then this year shouldn’t be any different! Though technically not an event, we believe it’s nothing short of a celebration that Zoo Miami is reopening its gates (obviously with a few limitations). While non-members have to purchase their 
tickets online, members are required to make a reservation due to capacity restrictions. Guests over 2 years of age will have to wear a face-covering as well as adhere to the social distancing norm of 6 feet. Groups of more than 10 are strongly discouraged.

Those not ready to venture out yet can tune into Zoocademy with Ron Magill for fun and educational content and activities that can be enjoyed right at home.


Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden: June 1 onwards

10901 Old Cutler Rd, Coral Gables

Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden


There’s no better way to get back to nature after being cooped up for so long than a field trip to the Fairchild. Members, as well as non-members, can get their tickets 
online.

In compliance with County-wide orders, everyone will be required to wear face coverings and practice social distancing. Each ticket holder will have two hours to enjoy the botanical gardens and shop at their on-premise store. However, those still looking to avoid any kind of physical contact can order farm-fresh mangoes and other fruit delivered to their doorstep from here.


Vizcaya Gardens: Thursdays to Mondays in June
