MIA: 4 Ways to Kickstart Your Morning

Read more

Mornings are about more than just waking up – they’re about starting early to make the most of every moment. This summer, the Kickstart Tu Día series is here to help you live your mornings right.

If you are tired of singing “Vamos a la playa” and want to try something fresh, Kickstart Tu Día to explore all the Magic City has to offer.

1. Breakfast like a champion

2830 NE 2nd Ave

Elbow your way to the front of the walk-up counter at the popular Enriqueta’s to order before you head to the galleries and luxe shops in neighboring Midtown or the wild, street art of Wynwood a few blocks south. ¿Te pica el hambre? Order a few pastelitos de guayaba y un pan con bistec–one of Miami’s best!

2. Get your learn on

History Miami Walking Tours
Various locales
Saturday mornings

Curious about how Miami became the multicultural mash up it is today? History Miami is hosting several tours on Saturday mornings throughout the summer that trace the evolution of the 305 from Native American wetlands to booming metropolitan city. Choose among tours that dive into the history and culture of Miami Beach, the Miami River and Miami circle archaeological site, and Little Havana. Space is limited, so reserve early!

3. Eat while dancing

Miami Beach Food Truck and Music Fest
North Shore Park Bandshell
August 28th

Two of the best things in life are coming together for this daylong fest at North Beach Bandshell, live music and cheap food. The event brings a host of food trucks offering burgers, seafood, healthy bites, ethnic specialties and everything in between. Some of our favorites eateries include Bocaditos, Garcia Brothers Seafood and La Camaronera. Beat the crowds and go early, and, in case you fall into a food-induced coma afterwards, sunbathe on the beach and enjoy one of the best beaches Miami has to offer.

4. Get inspired

Locusts Projects
3852 North Miami Avenue

Get your brain churning with Locust Projects in Wynwood and revel in the art this local gem has to offer. This warehouse turned contemporary art exhibition space invites some of the most well known Latin international artists as well as Miami stars to take complete ownership of the space and turn it into whatever they like. The resulting site-specific installations are breathtaking and inspiring and prove to be one of the best morning stimulants.
