Just like our #MiamiPeople portrait project, we’re introducing a new daily feature on the site called Things To Do In Miami. Basically, we’re going to give you some ideas of things you can do in the city whether you’re a local or a tourist or a recent new resident.
Up first is….Old Cutler Road and experiencing it on a lovely Saturday morning of your choice. The near coastal road that spans a southern portion of the county (in mostly affluent neighborhoods) is simply one of the best scenic and relaxing routes to take in all of Miami-Dade County. We encourage you to borrow, rent or hell, BUY, a convertible just to experience a drive from either end of the trail to the other. Though we suggest you start a little bit south of SW 152nd Street and end off at Cartagena Circle in Coral Cables (near 72nd Avenue and LeJeune Road). And from their you can continue on as the trail coverts to Ingraham Highway and will take you well into Coral Gables, Coconut Grove and Brickell.
Now, if you want to spice things up, you can bike it and experience the wonderful breeziness of a mild South Florida Saturday morning. Or, you can man up and run that shit from start to finish mini Miami marathon style.
Old Cutler Road on a Saturday morning do it.
BONUS: Chapman Field gate entrance at Old Cutler Road. Chapman Field used to be a landing strip, airstrip and air force base of sorts during the WWI era. The area used to be called The Cutler Aerial Gunnery Field, later renamed Chapman Field.
