One USA student travel destination that you may want to put onto your radar this year is Miami Beach, Florida. Situated in the southeastern tip of The Sunshine State, it is part of the well settled County of Miami-Dade. Although many people associate the general area with sugar sand beaches, South Beach food festivals and spring break revelers, it offers much more than that.
Wolfsonian-FIU Museum (Washington Avenue)
Take the Wolfsonian-FIU Museum as an example. Located in the bustling city’s Art Deco District, it is open daily year round. Friday evenings are a particularly fortuitous time to visit because admission fees are generally waived from 6 p.m. until 9 p.m. The venue has an onsite café and offers guided tours, facility rentals and educational programs for students of various ages. Art exhibits change throughout the year.
Bass Museum of Art (Collins Avenue)
The Bass Museum of Art is also located in Miami-Dade County. It too is open year round and offers guided tours, special events, facility rentals and educational programs. Many of the art objects on display are associated with the contemporary, Baroque and Renaissance periods of world history.
ARTventure (Throughout the City)
In addition, Miami Beach is home to a series of public art displays that have been incorporated into an ARTventure Tour. The tour is well suited for USA student travel itineraries. Stops on the tour include, but are not restricted to the Sunset Island Art Bridge, the Fillmore Lawn Mermaid and the N. Shore Youth Center’s wall mural titled, Circle. A complimentary map and brochure highlighting the various art exhibits are available through the City of Miami Beach.
Ars Flores Symphony Orchestra
Thanks to venues like the Ars Flores Symphony Orchestra, USA student travel groups seeking music related activities won’t be disappointed either. They offer free concerts, master classes and other music themed events throughout the year, many of which are geared towards young children. It would pair perfectly with a tour of the New World Center.
New World Center (17th Street)
The New World Center is a superb place to visit with students interested in culture, architecture and orchestra music. It also happens to be a stop on the ARTventure tour. Guided tours of the venue are given throughout the year to both student groups and individuals. Furthermore, children centered concerts, educational programs, young artist competitions and music labs are available onsite too.
