Top Ten Free Things to Do in Miami
Miami is a lot of things -- a bastion of beautiful people, a tropical paradise, the road rage capital of the free world. One thing it isn't, however, is cheap. And while some Miamians have beau coup bucks to throw around, if you're reading this, we're guessing you're not one of them.

The good news for broke folks is there's more free fun to be had than you might imagine. Here are our top ten free things to do in Miami (hint: a great page to bookmark for your next OK Cupid hangout).
10. The beach. Duh.
It's why we live here, obvs. But way too many of us fail to take advantage of the paradisiacal year-round asset that makes our friends up North weep with envy. How long has it been since you've had a beach day? Probably way too long. Pick your pleasure -- there are plenty of options, from bare-assed Haulover to booze-drenched SoBe.
9. Check out Miami Beach Botanical Garden.
Unlike the (worth every penny) $25 admission fee to Fairchild, the Beach's botanical treasure is gratis. Stroll the gorgeous green space and escape Miami madness for an afternoon.
