Ready for a city trip? Miami has a bumper crop of newly opened attractions

Published

on

As U.S. travelers eye upcoming vacations, some are heading south to Miami. The city combines urban verve with the breezy appeal of a beach trip: well-suited, perhaps, to a late-pandemic rush toward fresh air and fresh surroundings.

“Tourism is returning to Miami and Miami Beach in pre-pandemic levels,” said Bill Talbert, president and CEO of the Greater Miami Convention & Visitors Bureau (GMCVB). Hotel demand in the third week of May exceeded 2019 levels for the same dates, according to the GMCVB. Rising domestic travel is helping to offset the steep decline of international tourism, which, Talbert said, accounted for 30 percent of pre-pandemic visits.

Sun-seeking vacationers are arriving to a spate of new attractions. The year’s creative headliner is immersive art center Superblue, which opened May 20 across from the private Rubell Museum in the Allapattah neighborhood. Superblue’s first exhibition, “Every Wall Is a Door,” is a color-drenched, digital wonderland by artists Es Devlin, teamLab, and James Turrell. Visitors walk through and into art pieces, which include Devlin’s mirrored maze “Forest of Us,” and a virtual waterfall that parts just before flowing across your feet.
