Within a 30-minute drive of the hotel’s front door, you’ll find some of the best beaches in Miami. When you head to Crandon Park Beach or Hobie Island Beach on nearby Key Biscayne you’ll discover sand bars, palm trees, and tropical waters waiting to be explored.

At Crandon Park Beach be sure to visit the Marjory Stoneman Douglas Biscayne Nature Center for the chance to interact with sea turtles or go on a Family Seagrass Adventure with a conservation specialist. At Miami’s renowned Windsurfer Beach, Hobie Island Beach, embrace your adventurous side with a two-hour or all-day windsurfing lesson.

Explore South Miami or Coconut Grove by Bicycle

Available at the hotel’s main entrance, grab a few THesis Bikes for a leisurely cruise through South Miami or Coconut Grove. Just a few blocks from THesis Hotel, South Miami carries a vibrant energy and is the perfect neighborhood for casual cafe dining, boutique shopping, or catching a movie. Head in the other direction to take a spin down tree-lined streets in Miami’s bayside Coconut Grove neighborhood. Make sure you factor in time to hop off and explore as you go because you’ll find plenty of things to do in Coconut Grove along the way.

Travel Back in Time at a Historic Museum or Park

Explore the exhilarating Miami of days gone by at Vizcaya Museum and Gardens. Situated on the shores of Biscayne Bay, the Gilded Age estate spans ten breathtaking acres with Mangroves, lush gardens, and fascinating architecture. As a National Historic Landmark, Vizcaya Museum and Gardens acts as a cultural hub in Coconut Grove with decades of captivating history to dive headfirst into.
