Vacation Fun & English Courses in Miami Beach

Miami Beach is a vibrant city, world-famous for its beautiful beaches, cultural diversity, fantastic restaurants, amazing architecture, and exciting attractions. It has become one of the top destinations for both international and domestic travelers. While most famous for its beaches and dynamic nightlife, it also offers many top-quality museums and musical performance venues.

Although you can enjoy a memorable vacation without ever leaving Miami Beach, its convenient location and transportation options make it easy to access the most interesting places in the city of Miami itself. Miami Beach is the perfect place to enjoy the vacation of a lifetime while learning English.

Let’s look at what makes taking English courses in Miami Beach an amazing vacation choice.

Why Choose Miami Beach for an English Course?

Miami Beach is an ideal place to learn and practice English. As a top vacation destination for visitors from all over the United States and the world, English is used as the common language in everyday communication.

LANGUAGE ON’s English school is located in the heart of Miami Beach on the famous Lincoln Road. Lincoln Road is an outdoor pedestrian mall where the only traffic allowed is on the cross-Streets. Everything is easily accessible from this convenient location near the best shopping, dining, entertainment, and fabulous beaches. Here you’ll find all kinds of shops from international chains to small, eccentric boutiques, and restaurants for all tastes and budgets. Lincoln Road is also the departure point for guided tours of many fascinating attractions in the surrounding area, such as the amazing Everglades National Park.

Getting around Miami Beach and surrounding areas is easy! While ridesharing services are available, public transportation runs frequently, both within the city of Miami Beach and to the surrounding areas of Miami. You can also take advantage of the City of Miami Beach’s free trolley service that will take you almost anywhere within the city.

Combining Learning with Leisure: Vacation Activities in Miami Beach

You can enjoy one of many world-famous beaches—there are a total of 7 miles (11 km) of beaches to discover! With so many public beaches, you’re sure to find one with a “vibe” just right for you. In addition to sunbathing and swimming, many beaches also allow other activities, such as beach volleyball and fishing. Here are some of the most well-known beaches:

  • North Shore Open Space Park: A hidden gem, this beach offers a more tranquil experience away from the crowds. It features lush greenery, picnic areas, and a long stretch of sandy shoreline.
  • Haulover Beach Park: Known for its clothing-optional section, Haulover Beach is also popular for kite flying, surfing, and fishing.
  • Lummus Park Beach: Adjacent to South Beach, Lummus Park Beach is perfect for people-watching.
  • Bal Harbour Beach: Located just north of Miami Beach, Bal Harbour Beach is known for its luxury hotels and upscale shopping. The beach itself is pristine, with calm waters and soft sand. This is one of your best choices for a calmer, more relaxing day at the beach.
  • South Beach (SoBe): Undoubtedly the most popular beach for tourists, South Beach stretches along Ocean Drive between 5th St and 15th St. It features charming art deco architecture, and a paved pathway perfect for jogging or people-watching. The warm, clear water and white sand make it a must-visit.
  • South Pointe Park: Located at the southern tip of Miami Beach, South Pointe Park offers unbeatable panoramic views of the shoreline. You’ll find a quieter atmosphere here, along with a walking trail, picnic areas, and a 450 ft-long pier for fishing and photos.

Geographically, Miami Beach is a long island running parallel to the mainland. It’s connected to the city of Miami by several cross-water roads called causeways. Miami Beach has many distinct neighborhoods, each with a special character and feeling:

South Pointe, as the name suggests, is the southernmost area.

South Beach, which runs from about 5th Street to 23rd Street, is famous for its nightlife, shopping, and eclectic variety of restaurants. Here you’ll find the world-famous Lincoln Road pedestrian mall. You won’t want to miss the lovely Espanola Way neighborhood with its Spanish-themed buildings.

The Mid-Beach area, between 25th and 60th Street, is a great place to take a casual stroll or visit one of the quieter beaches.

Normandy Isle is a funky neighborhood located just off Miami Beach itself around 71st Street. This artificial island was created in the 1920s by a successful movie theater entrepreneur from France, so all the Streets were given French names.

Going further north, you’ll find more interesting areas, such as the city of Surfside, with its small-town, cozy feel. After this comes the beautiful and elegant Bal Harbour, with its high-end designer shops and restaurants.

Cultural Activities in Miami Beach

Miami Beach offers many interesting cultural activities, from museums to musical performances. These are a great change of pace when you want to get out of the sun for a while.

You’ll find several unique museums in Miami Beach and the surrounding area. Some we particularly like are:

The Bass Museum of Art, located near the famous Lincoln Road Mall, specializes in Contemporary Art but also includes works from other periods. Check out their “Open Storage” exhibition, which displays art pieces from different times and places in the same space. This juxtaposition creates a whole new aesthetic experience.

The Jewish Museum of Florida is also located in the South Beach area. Here you can learn about the diverse expressions of Jewish culture around the world. While in Miami Beach, you’ll also want to visit the dramatic Holocaust Memorial.

Just across the causeway from Miami Beach to Miami itself, you’ll find the Perez Art Museum and the Frost Science Museum. Both are world-class institutions that can easily be reached from Miami Beach by public transportation or rideshare apps.

Music lovers can attend a wide variety of musical performances on Miami Beach. The New World Symphony is a world-renowned orchestra whose members are recent graduates with advanced university degrees in performance. For more eclectic tastes, check out the Miami Beach Bandshell . At this open-air venue you’ll experience performances by a diverse group of jazz, pop, rock, folk, cabaret, and other international artists. The informal atmosphere at this venue is great for meeting people (and of course, practicing your English!). There are also two major performance halls on the mainland just across the causeway from Miami Beach. The Arsht Center presents plays, musicals, and dance performances in many styles. The nearby Kaseya Center is home to the Miami Heat basketball team, and hosts big-name popular music performances.

Miami Beach is also internationally famous for its architecture, particularly the Art Deco style. There are several officially-designated historical areas where the finest examples of this style have been carefully preserved.

Miami Beach is a paradise for “foodies” (people who are passionate about discovering new foods). With an estimated 5,000 fine dining restaurants in Miami Beach, you’re sure to find both old favorites and new experiences.

Benefits of Vacation English Courses

Research has shown that relaxing leads to a healthier state of mind so you can get the most out of your studying. You can focus more clearly and remember more when your mind is at ease. Releasing tensions and preoccupations as you relax on a beautiful beach or people watch at a sidewalk café frees up space in your mind that can easily be filled by your new knowledge of English. The more intense activities you can enjoy on Miami Beach–like jet skiing or nightclubbing–also reset your mind so you are more open to learning.
