Bayside Marketplace, Miami

Bayside Marketplace, Miami (must see)

Bayside Marketplace is a festival marketplace in Downtown Miami. It's in between Bayfront Park to the south end and the American Airlines Arena to the north. As Bayside's name suggests, it wraps along the banks of the Biscayne Bay. The entertainment complex opened in 1987, while a major real estate boom was taking place. Instead of being planned to revitalize a specific area as its sister properties had, Bayside complements an existing marina. The shopping center was frequently featured on the crime drama TV series, Miami Vice. The center attracts on average fifteen million people annually. It is served by the Metrorail at the Government Center Station, and directly by the Metromover's College/Bayside Station.

Why You Should Visit:
Restaurants overlooking the dock, many boating activities – jet boats, sunset cruises, etc... Overall, friendly and very culturally diverse.
Nice atmosphere through the day, but especially in the evenings, when there's always something going on, live, on the main podium.

Operation Hours:
