So you might be dreaming of finally making that trip down to Miami, Florida and enjoying everything that the city has to offer. There’s just one thing that could make you throw that idea away — the fact that there’s no one available to head out there with you. But fear not, intrepid traveler…you can still make that trek to South Beach. As a matter of fact, you will find yourself joining a growing number of people who are making solo travel a firm part of their lifestyle. And Miami has a slew of activities for those visiting their city alone that will let them have a whole lot of fun while being safe in the process. Here’s a select list for those who are contemplating things to do alone in Miami.

1. Miami Combo Tour: City Sightseeing, Biscayne Bay Cruise and Everglades Airboat Ride (from USD 68)

After your meal, you’ll hit Biscayne Bay for a waterfront tour of the city and then you’ll zip about the Florida Everglades in an airboat to cap off your day.

4. Speedboat Sightseeing Tour of Miami (from USD 40)
