Summer officially ends in just 36 days, but the fun continues thanks to a host of epic, can’t-miss events taking place on Miami Beach. Now through the end of summer, travelers can enjoy a wide variety of destination events such as art exhibits, cultural festivals, and relaxation treatments. No matter the choice, travelers are in for unforgettable experiences that will prove Miami Beach to be a city like no other place in the world.

“Summer is great for creating memories with loved ones, and these marquee Miami Beach events are perfect for travelers looking to make the most out of these final weeks of the season,” said Steve Adkins, Chairman of the Miami Beach Visitor and Convention Authority (MBVCA). “There’s an event taking place every day this month, making it easy for travelers to get in one last summer celebration before welcoming fall.”

Miami Beach is known for catering to every type of traveler, from culture-enthusiasts to foodies – there’s something for everyone to enjoy. Art aficionados will enjoy the unique exhibitions at The Wolfsonian, while those looking to end their summer with some relaxation can book a spa treatment and get some R&R on the beach or at one of many luxurious hotel pools.
