Kayaking in Oleta river SP.
Sugar sand park in boca.
Frost Museum.
Lion country safari
If all else fails, beach and pool

JJ1000's list of top restaurants and dishes in Miami:

1. Backyard BBQ (New chef in mid 2017 totally new menu): Burnt ends, 2nd cut brisket, Dinosaur Rib, BBQ Sundae, BBQ Burger.

2. 26: Sushi pizza is  a must I prefer it with baked salmon, then the Passion Mojito, Sushi Teriyaki tempuraed, Cilantro Aioli dip and truffle fires, all of their soups are good. Miso Bass is incredible as well.

3. Harbour Bistro, new menus in early 2018: Chicken and waffles just perfect, duck a l'orange pot stickers, millionaire ramen, lamb shank, charcuterie platter if that's your thing... Also serving brunch, Chicken and waffles again, eggs Benedict with bacon on top,

4. Fuego: Flatbreads are a must, then the back ribs, pastrami egg rolls, smores dessert, perfect date drink are good. (Update March 2017, the app chef and bbq chef isn't there anymore and the quality has been spotty from recent reviews.)

5. Zak The Baker. Menu changes too often to recommend stuff. Not Cholov Yisroel.

6. Kosh: Chocolate souffle and korean beef with extra sauce are good.

7. Rustiko: Spinach and Artichoke Dip, (Quinoa Salad is very good), (Pappardelle Mushroom if lunch), Mushrooms Panzerotti is an absolute must order only down side is it's a dinner only item. Oreo cheescake dessert but make sure it's fresh.

8. Harbour Grill: The Harbour Grill Filet or TheKing Reserve steaks are great. Supreme Burger is very good as well.

9. Pizza type options:

Foozo: Foozolis, the caprese foozoli with extra balsamic sauce and garlic aoili, their pastas are good as well.

Jerusalem Pizza: Best plain pie, get it fresh in store, coated fries good as well.

Lenny's pizza: Gan Eden Pie.

Also notable unique places are The Freeze which makes ices, serendipity makes ice cream (there is one next door to ZTB now), and Miami Beach Chocolates turtles and bark now also in Surfside!


#2020 Restaurants with outdoor seating

Soho - large semi enclosed patio, perfect for a rainy day

Fuego - large semi sheltered area outside the restaurant, indoors area has a new $20k air filtration system

Mozart Sunny isles -  large semi sheltered area outside the restaurant

Foozo - streetside tables

Zak The Baker -  streetside tables

Cine Cita, Backyard BBQ, Street Kitchen, 26, Kosh - streetside tables on Harding Ave

A little more info would go a long way. Are you asking for couples, families, teens, or small kids?

Key Biscane. You can rent all different kinds of bikes and ride them down the trails along the beautiful water. They have these 4-6 seater bikes which make for a nice ride together with the family (everyone pedals, and two steering wheels in the front). There's a beach there if you like that,. When I was at the beach during March last year there weren't many people there at the time. You can do fishing too. They charge a few dollars to enter the park.

The Parot Jungle. Never went there but I hear people like it.

If anyone is looking for a nice place to eat I highly recommend Pistachio.
Theyre located at
740 41st St,
Miami Beach FL33140      305-538-1616
The burgers are to die for and they have amazing deli sandwiches too. And the stuff cannot be more polite.

Indeed!

Thus the need for some sort of prioritizing system that I tried creating...just unsure if it's valid or not.

let me give some advice as a miami native. the top two meat restaurants on ur list are def right. Prime grill and china bistro are awesome but a little pricey. In terms of dairy shemtovs is a pizza place with other stuff as well its pretty good but nothing so special. lofty latte doesnt exist anymore. and the frieze's sorbet is awesome i try to go whenever im back at home.  If you have any specific questions feel free to ask

The frieze has cholov yosroel soft serve ( kleins) it does not compare to their home made stuff though. You should go for the sorbets alone.
There is a skoops in NMB  that us still around and cholov yosroel.
Compared to other steak houses around the globe grill time is not to pricey
