The Ten Best Things to Do in Miami This Weekend

Categories: Things To Do

Viva Paris International will tease and tantalize, Friday.
Love is in the air, and come Sunday, a bunch of kites.

Yes, whether you're a mushy puddle of sensitivity or a hardened rock of apathy, Miami's got tons for you to do on this amorous President's Day Weekend. Two of the city's most exciting arts festivals are under way, and one of the biggest marine-life gatherings is here to rock your world.

We've got some great comedy coming through town and a few local groups making their singing debut. So don't sit around your house in your pajamas all weekend. Think about how the rest of the country can't even step outside. Enjoy the sun and check out these great events.
