Take in the Sights at Tropical Park

Most local parks can't boast an annual guest list that exceeds a million people, but Tropical Park can. The breathtaking Miami park attracts about 1.5 million people every year, to be more precise. Some of that foot traffic can probably be attributed to the Miami International Agriculture and Cattle Show, which is held at Tropical Park's Ronald Reagan Equestrian Center each year. Still more may be due to the Southwest Community Farmers Market unfolding at Tropical Park each weekend. Even without these special events, though, chances are the space would still draw a crowd.

That's because it's so rich in natural beauty. Dip your toes in the pristine lake, the water so clear that it looks more like a tropical ocean than an oversized pond. Explore and appreciate the colorful mosaics throughout the park, including a tiled mural on the wall of the racquetball courts. Or just claim a patch of grass and enjoy a picnic beside the lake, possible with a pooch worn out from his time at the dog park.
