Happy Holidays, Miami! The holiday season is here. It’s our favorite time of year and a time for parades, tree lightings, parties, and more.  

There’s still plenty of time to get your plans together!

Speaking of plans, we’re on the lookout for some of the best Holiday events in Miami. Keep checking back here to find all of the best things to do this holiday season.

📷 Miami City Ballet

Step into a dream with George Balanchine’s The Nutcracker. More than 100 dancers will be on stage sharing their talents as they guide you through a dazzling winter wonderland. Meet the sugarplum fairies and get to know the Mouse King and toy soldiers. It truly is a cherished holiday tradition and definitely something everyone should experience at least once. 

This world-renowned production will have your imagination flourish and is perfect for family and friends!

Guess who’s coming to town for the Bayfront Holiday Village? Bayfront Park will be transforming into the ultimate shopping and entertainment destination for the holiday season. Whether you’re a local or a tourist, this is an experience you won’t want to miss out on. 

A few things event-goers will experience are “The Shops,” which will have a collection of artisans ready to help you get the perfect gift for your loved ones. Something really cool called Bayskate, which is Miami’s take on ice skating.

Finally, enjoy “Bayfront Bites,” an area full of food, drinks, and entertainment for you to chill out by the park’s waterfront. 

It doesn’t end there! Use code: UNATION in order to get a FREE DRINK from 4-6PM at the North Pole Beach Club!
