Miami is truly something else. While other parts of the country are shivering from the cold of winter, Miami is warm and refreshing thanks to its tropical climate. As others are hiding under heavy blankets, you could be spreading yourself out at one of the beaches in South Beach and this is what makes Miami special. This post highlights the best things to do in South Beach in February that include family-friendly events, concerts, and sports activities. Let’s get started!
Miami Marathon: Feb 9
The Miami marathon is one of the premier marathon events in the country. It brings together runners from all the states and international runners as well making it a great event for those who love athletics.
There will be half and full marathon courses that start in Downtown Miami, then into South Beach and end in downtown Miami again. Reserve your spot early enough if you want to participate in either of the marathons as the event is expected to sell out.
You can still be a spectator if you are not a runner as you witness great athletes beat their personal bests and set course records.
