A moderate paced walk (2.5 mph). Walk from the parking lot at 17st street to the end of the boardwalk at 47th street and beyond and back. The boardwalk is mostly elevated wood so it is an easy and really nice walk. Part of the boardwalk is under construction so we will walk partially on sand. There are also 3 bathroom centers from the beginning to the end of the boardwalk. We will pass many high end hotels and view lots of ocean scenery and greenery. After the boardwalk enjoy the Miami Beach Botanical Garden. The mission of the Miami Beach Botanical Garden is to provide free public access to an attractive botanical garden, create environmental education programs for children and adults, preserve green space, and promote green living. I will email everyone a day or two before the walk with any updates if needed. The walk begins at 7:30 a.m. and will be finished by 10:30-11 a.m.
Directions: Park in the indoor lot at 17th Street and Convention Center Drive. Rates are approximately $1 per hour. Expect to spend up to 4 hours walking and also sightseeing after the walk.
