8. It’s always outdoor party season in Miami. But this time of year, take in the skyline views at the newly launched Sunday brunch soiree at the Deck at Island Gardens. Travel to the restaurant by land or by sea (yes, some diners really do arrive by yacht) and feast on an updated menu of Mediterranean small plates, including hummus and tzatziki sauces to pair with fresh breads, and dishes such as pear Gorgonzola black truffle ravioli and shrimp asparagus ravioli. Every Sunday

9. Hop over to Jungle Plaza every Wednesday for The Market at #MDD, a weekly farmers’ market featuring more than 40 artisanal businesses peddling a few of our favorite things: local produce, specialty foods and fresh flowers. Every Wednesday
