The Ten Best Things To Do This Weekend in Miami

There's a (slight) chill in the air. You've even shut off your A/C a couple of times. This, folks, is "fall" in Miami. There may not be fiery hearths and layers, but we can get cozy with the best of 'em. Though you may want to stay in with that blanket and new book, this weekend kicks off the Miami Book Fair International, the yearly mega fest that brings fun and impressive literati for tons of big events.

You can celebrate your bookish side beginning Sunday, and until then, there's plenty of places to get your cultural fix.

  • The Swamp: Starting Sunday, a pop-up lounge takes over the Book Fair, but there's little that's lounge-y about it. Filled with Florida-centric activities celebrating the beautiful and weird of our state, the Swamp kicks off with the WEIRD Miami Bus Tour, followed by a bocce ball tournament, live painting with LEBO, and poetry karaoke. We also heard a rumor that AholSniffsGlue's magical claw machine will make an appearance. Check out a full schedule here.
