Bayside Marketplace is a large waterfront shopping, entertainment and dining area located in Downtown Miami. The marketplace has a lot of attractions and activities. Being in the Bayfront, you will see the bridge to Port of Miami, across the street is the American Airlines Arena, Freedom Tower and Bayfront Park. In the Bayside Market, there's a variety of restaurants, including Mangos, the signature eatery owned by Miami local and Latin Superstar, Gloria Estefan. Additionally, there is live entertainment in the center of the pavilion on a nightly basis. At Bayside, charter a private boat for a day cruise or join a party boat tour to get an up-close look at Star Island, which is home to Rosie, O'Donnell, Ricky Martin and the home filmed in for the movie Scarface.

This festive marketplace located in Downtown Miami (minutes away from the Perez Art Museum) sits next to Biscayne Bay. It offers several restaurants that range from chains to more specialized options (Largo Seafood & Grill; Latin American Café, and the popular Lombardi’s Ristorante). Take a stroll, rent a charter boat, or simply practice your photography skills because the views along the bay are breathtaking, especially at sunset. Venture here during the evenings for the free concerts to truly soak in the Miami music spirit. Expect crowds when there’s gorgeous weather (since this is Miami, that would be most days) but you should still be able to find some open space to take in the scene.
