The Adrienne Arsht Center might be Miami's most beautiful building. Any way you slice it, the modern tribute to glass and steel is a bold reminder of our city's commitment to the arts. Most major shows make a stop at the Arsht Center, from Les Misérables to the Boston Pops. The largest performing arts center in Florida, this 5,000-seat apex is comfy indeed. There's a concert hall, a theater in the round, an outdoor performance space and even a swanky eatery on site. Sure, a visit to the Arsht ain't cheap — you'll pay a pretty penny for drinks and snacks and probably tickets (although deals do abound) — but it's so worth it to nourish your starving intellect, now isn't it?
