People come down to Miami to enjoy a sunny weather and a beautiful beach. But if you can’t imagine what else to do here, I highly recommend visiting Morikami Museum and Japanese Garden. It is about 1 hour drive from South Beach toward Fort Lauderdale.

I went there couple of days ago and I was so amazed! It is beautifully arranged landscape filled with lots of different gardens. Each one of those gardens has it own theme but all of them has a significant touch of a Japanese culture. Take a look at the pictures I took from there:

This is japanese farmer who, after his death, donated his land to Florida State. The land eventually became what it is today:
