The air may be thick in Miami, but the culture is even thicker. This area is known for its diverse attractions, restaurants and events. Plus, you’re never far away from all its beautiful beaches, which are perfect for lounging or people watching.
Unmatched culture combined with its warm, tropical weather makes Miami the perfect RV vacation destination. And with so many unbelievable tourist attractions in such close proximity to downtown, you’ll have trouble choosing which ones to visit. With that in mind, here are five can’t-miss Miami RV destinations your whole family will love.
1. Miami Everglades RV Resort
Located just 30 miles from the city center, Miami Everglades RV Resort puts guests in close proximity to everything this vibrant town has to offer. Spend a day at one of Miami’s amazing beaches, drive into the city for dinner, drinks and dancing, or simply relax the day away next to the resort’s heated pool.
Everglades National Park is certainly one destination you can’t afford to miss during your resort stay. As the third-largest national park in the United States, the Everglades is home to manatees, crocodiles, panthers and the largest Mangrove ecosystem in the Western Hemisphere. Take our advice, there’s no better way to see this priceless national treasure than from the comfort of a luxury RV.
2. Homestead Tailgating
If you’re a motorsports enthusiast, nothing matches the thrill of a NASCAR event. Every year in mid-November, the Homestead Miami Speedway hosts three Ford championship events over one amazing weekend. Miami RV travelers can gain special access to these races by reserving a space alongside turn 2 inside the speedway gates. This five-day space rental includes water and electrical hookups, concierge services and social events within the grounds.
3. Vizcaya Museum and Gardens
Sitting on the edge of the Biscayne Bay, Vizcaya Museum and Gardens was once the home of investor Henry Deering who built the estate in 1914 as his interpretation of an eighteenth-century Italian villa. Today the home, and surrounding gardens, have been preserved as a museum and are filled with priceless works of art. The Vizcaya collection includes ancient Roman sculptures, Renaissance tapestries, seventeenth- and eighteenth-century statues and garden decorations, Rococo and Neoclassical furniture, and more.
4. Miami Football Games
Hurricanes football games have come to define the Miami sports scene. Football at “The U” came of age in 1983 when the team won its first national title. The team continued dominating the sport over the next decade, winning three more championships thanks to a series of larger-than-life players and coaches. Today the team is still beloved throughout Miami, and every Saturday during the fall Hard Rock Stadium is filled with the sounds of boisterous cheering.

Located midway between Miami and Homestead, the zoo features more than 3,000 animals from every corner of the world, multiple playgrounds and water play areas for the kids (and the kids-at-heart), as well as several restaurants and food carts scattered throughout the grounds. Speaking of food, Zoo Miami gives guests the opportunity to participate in feeding encounters with Giraffes, Camels, the Giant Tortoise, and even Rhinos. Now there’s a meal you’ll remember forever.
