This University of Miami art outpost has been around since 1952, making it South Florida's first official art museum. Since then, Coral Gables' University of Miami Lowe Art Museum has expanded to a whopping 17,500–objects -- everything from Renaissance and Baroque to American, Ancient and Native American and Asian art. They even added a pavilion for glass and studio art back in '08, so there's something for almost any art lover in this vast collection of aesthetically appealing stuff. Oh, and their LoweDown Happy Hour mix and mingles are a big draw, too. Everyone knows booze and art are a combo as quintessential as PB&J.
