Walk a Little. Drive a Little. It's All Nearby
From Avalon Hotel, many of Miami Beach's top attractions are within walking distance. We are located on Ocean Drive, so simply step outside our hotel to find yourself immersed in the art deco architecture of the 1920s and 30s.
Explore the Art Deco Historic District to find vibrant sidewalk cafes, rows of brightly painted art deco hotels, and more than 900 historically designated and restored buildings. Stroll a little farther to South Pointe Park — within one mile of our hotel — where you can watch cruise ships sail from the Port of Miami, or walk one of the many trails throughout this 17-acre park. Stop by Wolfson-Florida International University to see how this museum, library, and research center showcases the power of design.
Hop in the car for a short drive to destinations such as Jungle Island, where unusual and endangered species are on display — tigers, an albino alligator, and exotic birds to name a few. Head over to Miami Seaquarium to watch shows with dolphins or killer whales — or take it a step further with an Animal Encounter and jump in the water with dolphins, penguins, and seals. Our location makes it easy to take a day trip and visit the famous Florida Keys.
