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



Deering Estate Virtual Full Moon Yoga: June 4

Deering Estate Virtual Full Moon Yoga


Taking their monthly full moon yoga class online, yogi Zamanata will be leading a 75-minute Hatha flow session. For $10, you get to experience the transition of the Sun, Moon, and cosmic elements in a refreshing evening class. Those interested should pre-register 
here, or keep an eye out for when other in-person events come back up here.


O Cinema South Beach: Continuing into June

O Cinema South Beach


Kick your binge-watch sessions up a notch, as you catch cinematic gems streamed online on O Cinema’s virtual platform. Turn your living room into a world-class theater as you watch great conversation starters not available on any other streaming platform. While some of these films are free to the public like 
Balloon, others have to be paid for.


Live with Mainly Mozart: Concert Series through June 27

Live with Mainly Mozart


The Miami Chamber Music Society, in partnership with the University of Miami, will be live streaming this Mozart-focused concert series every Saturday through in June along with featuring artists in performance plus behind-the-scenes action and conversation.

The Bass Museum Virtual Summer Art Camp: June 8 – August 14

The Bass Museum Virtual Summer Art Camp


While The Bass is still undecided on an opening date, you can enroll your little one into an art-filled summer camp right at home. With sign-ups available on a weekly basis as well as for all of summer, your kid(s) will be entitled to an art package (that can be picked up at the museum or couriered home) plus daily, live video instructions for a fun, hands-on experience. Enrolling children by age group (ages 4-6 in
Little Ones Art Camp and 7-12 in Kids Art Camp), family and friends will be treated to a virtual student exhibition at the end.

This annual celebration of the summer solstice is taking on a virtual avatar while respecting social distancing norms.

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

3251 South Miami Avenue, Coconut Grove

Vizcaya Gardens


Miami’s very own formal Italian gardens are open to visitors this June, operating 9.30 a.m. to 4.30 p.m., Thursdays through Mondays. All visitors are required to get their 
tickets online and adhere to the rules set out on this page.

For those still practicing social isolation, the museum has some fabulous, free online experiences to indulge in like soothing Zenscapes, introductory videos, lectures, Zoom backgrounds, and a downloadable coloring book for adults as well as children. 


Frost Science In-Person and Virtual Summer Camps: Starting June 8

Online and 1101 Biscayne Blvd, Downtown

Frost Science In-Person and Virtual Summer Camps


Whether you’re planning on staying home or venturing out with caution, the Frost Museum of Science has summer camp options that will keep your little ones safely engaged. The museum’s 
in-person summer camp program is open for children aged 4-11, getting them to explore marine sciences, astronomy, engineering, technology, and more along with time around the museum. You can read about their safety plan and other FAQs here.

The virtual summer camp has separate sessions for children aged 4-11 and kids 11-14. Read more about the virtual camp FAQs here.

Real Estate News Miami Condo Market Snapshot: June 2020
Three months into the coronavirus pandemic, we’re still adjusting our daily work and personal lives, and the markets are still adjusting, too. As we continue to monitor how the Miami condo market is faring, data from our June Multiple Listing Service (MLS) CBB Condo Market Snapshot show that, compared to May, the market is showing signs of a recovery, but compared to last year, sales have dropped significantly.

Opinions and Advice Condo Painting Dos and Don’ts
Painting your home can be a daunting prospect. From color selection to the clean-up mess! However, when done right, a good paint job can give your condo a well-needed facelift. Believe it or not, painting is actually quite a complex procedure. I mean, who knew there were 52 shades of white?! And whatever color you do end up choosing will dictate the mood and feel of your entire condo - so no pressure! What Color? Which Room? At the end of the day, you should paint your house in whatever color floats your boat! You have to live there after all. That being said there are definitely good and bad paint colors. The colors and combinations you chose will ultimately have an impact on the look, and more importantly, the feel of your home, and this can be pivotal when it comes time to sell.  For example, you might love a dramatic dark indigo wall, but houses with dark walls have historically sold for less than ones painted in lighter and more neutral tones. So it is important that you...
