Top Five Things to Do in Miami Beach during #CCHUC18

Gearing up for a professional conference usually follows the same pattern. You start refining your must-see list of sessions and speakers. You also check in with friends and colleagues who’ll be there, syncing up schedules and planning to catch up.

But the official conference agenda is just part of the excitement. With CCH Connections: User Conference 2018 taking place in the heart of Miami Beach, you’ll definitely want to build in time to explore and experience all the city has to offer. Here are five suggestions to fire up your itinerary.

Exploring Collins Avenue and the Art Deco Historic District

#CCHUC18 will call the Fountainebleau® Miami Beach home October 21-24, which is the perfect base for taking in the architecture, shopping, and nightlife along Collins Avenue.

Famed for its lineup of word-class hotels, restaurants, and boutiques, Collins Avenue is home to the Art Deco Historic District. Stroll on your own past the likes of mid-1930s gems Beacon Hotel and Colony Hotel while making your way to Lummus Park (which you’ll recognize as a popular location in Miami-set movies and TV shows), or opt for a walking tour with the Miami Design Preservation League.

Parasailing and Helicoptering

If you prefer more altitude when taking in the sights of Miami Beach, you’ll want to take to the sky. Popular travel sites like TripAdvisor and Expedia list a variety of excursions ranging from helicopter tours to parasailing, many just a short distance from the Fountainebleau®.

Taking to the Water

Did you know that Miami Beach is made up of several barrier islands (nicknamed the “Billion-Dollar Sandbar”)? What better way, then, to see the city than by boat (or jet ski, or yacht)? Heading out on the water is also a fantastic way to explore the greater Miami region, from Biscayne Bay to the Everglades.

Immersing Yourself in Favorite Film and TV Settings

From classics to new releases, Miami is a popular film-and-TV setting. Just steps from the Fountainebleau® on Miami Beach, you’ll find filming locations for the likes of Goldfinger and The Bodyguard. Check out the complete map to find your favorites.

Getting a Taste of Miami Beach

Miami is the U.S. gateway to Latin America and the Caribbean, and the South Beach section of Miami Beach is where you’ll find flavors from Cuba to Argentina all within walking distance. Food tours of Miami neighborhoods Little Haiti, Wynwood, and Little Havana also are just a short trip over the causeway.
