10. The beach. Duh.

It's why we live here, obvs. But way too many of us fail to take advantage of the paradisiacal year-round asset that makes our friends up North weep with envy. How long has it been since you've had a beach day? Probably way too long. Pick your pleasure -- there are plenty of options, from bare-assed Haulover to booze-drenched SoBe.

Unlike the (worth every penny) $25 admission fee to Fairchild, the Beach's botanical treasure is gratis. Stroll the gorgeous green space and escape Miami madness for an afternoon.
