Ten Alternatives to Miami's Memorial Day Mayhem

Memorial Day on Ocean Drive in 2013.
When Memorial Day weekend comes along, Miamians tend to get a bit squeamish. Should you stay in town to save money but risk becoming a part of your very own CSI: Miami horror story? Or drop a couple G's and hop on the next flight out of town? It's an annual Sophie's choice.

If you're sticking around, but hoping to avoid this year's madness, you won't be stuck indoors. Here are ten ways to enjoy next weekend while still avoiding all the drama.

10. Turnberry Isle Miami
Instead of being eyeballed by suspicious looking characters in South Beach, why not spend the weekend at Turnberry Isle Miami? There, you and the kiddies can listen to free live music and grub down at their hearty Barbeque Buffet for only $30. Call 305-932-6200.

9. Pérez Art Museum Miami
Not really into barbecues? Let Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM) appease your art palate instead, with the Americana and Caribbean: Crossroads of the World exhibition tours on May 26. Here's an added bonus: if you arrive by Metromover, you'll get your entrance admission comped. Visit pamm.org.

Take your camera around South Beach and record all the racist stores that close.  That's what I do.  Political tourism.
