Miami Florida

Sports and Outdoors


For those who have to really limit their Miami sport and fitness to the immediate areas of town, there are still some excellent outfits and hotspots to get going with, either outdoor or indoor. You might not think of Miami as a place to vertically challenge yourself for instance, but you can actually do so in style at the Fitness Complex of Eden Roc Resort (day memberships available) has a great 28 foot high indoor rock climbing wall, the only indoor rock climbing on Miami Beach. Also in town is the Rock Climbing Center of Miami, which offers safe indoor climbing with plenty of variety--there are 10,000 square feet of textured walls, with routes up to 60 feet in length; there is top rope climbing, bouldering, lead rope climbing and more-and the instruction available makes it great for beginners as well as experienced climbers. Making the most of your time outdoors while absorbing Miami's human and architectural sights is also simple with the 30 odd miles of white sand beaches. Before you set off, remember to use sun block so you don't return with a painful burn-something you need to do even during the winter months here.

Tropical Park is also the headquarters site for Miami Runners Club, the third largest runner's organization in the country. Within the Park there are up to 10 miles of paved running courses laid out by the Club. Enjoy some of the scenery of one of the city's toniest old neighborhoods with a run along the 8.5 mile South Bay Bike Path that passes through Coconut Grove. Around the two mile point, there is a mile-long bike path that leads into Matheson Hammock Park and in turn connects to a 1.5 mile trail through some 100 acres of mangrove wilds. And if you really want to tie in your running to a competitive event in this part of the world, then consider the Rums of Puerto Rico 5-K that takes place in June along the sands of Miami Beach. The after party with its food is an event in itself, and if you are not so disciplined as to be running again on your own the next day, the plentiful rum on hand is another highlight beyond the finishing line. The other very SoBe active thing is of course, rollerblading along world-famous Ocean Drive, which can tend to be more about the body statement than the skating form you display. If you have no skates with you then rent them from Fritz's Skate, Bike & Surf or the Miami Beach Bicycle Center, then cruise the path that hugs the drive. The best beachside skating is the section from 5th through 15th streets, where the other plus is the cafes across the street that make a break convenient.

For the more traditionally athletic-minded, there are some 180 public tennis courts covering the range of surfaces from clay to grass, and the prestige of playing at the Key Biscayne Tennis Association; the state-of-the-art Crandon Tennis Center hosts the NASDAQ-100 Tennis Championships each March, while the rest of the year its immaculate courts are open to the public, along with innumerable other well-kept tennis venues throughout Miami...
