What to explore in Brickell

From a spooky, abandoned mausoleum hidden in Brickell Park to the home of Miami-Dade County’s first physician, Dr. James M. Jackson, there’s plenty of history to discover in Brickell. There’s plenty to do, too. Wander through the bustling Mary Brickell Village or escape it all into the green oasis that is Allen Morris Park. Here’s our guide to exploring Brickell.

Allen Morris Brickell Park

Allen Morris Brickell Park, covered in greenery, is an oasis in the middle of the Brickell bustle. Stroll the paved path or take a seat on one of the many benches to really soak it in.

Brickell Bay Drive benches

Use your lunch break in your otherwise busy day to take in beautiful Biscayne Bay. Benches were installed along the waterfront in 2013 as part of a Miami Foundation Public Spaces Challenge and have become an anchor of the Brickell Bay Drive walkway.

Brickell Key Park

A breath of fresh air in the midst of crowded Brickell, Brickell Key Park offers a 1.15 mile track lined with statues and palms. It’s perfect for strolling or a good hard run, with breathtaking views of the city and Biscayne Bay. We especially love catching the sunset here.

Miami Circle

Miami Circle, on Brickell Point, is believed to be the site of one of the oldest known permanent structures in the United States. The site, where the Miami River meets Biscayne Bay, is a ring of holes cut into limestone bedrock. Archaeologists believe the Tequesta Indians used the holes to support posts for a structure built as many as 2,000 years ago. The site sparked a seminal fight over development and historical preservation in Miami, and is now listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
