Winter Break in Miami


Guiliana Garces, Staff Writer

Many people travel to different places all around the world for the holidays, but Miami is also an excellent place to spend your winter break! However, participating in exciting events while on break can be overly expensive. For this reason, we researched different events that are not only entertaining, but also free.

Moonlight Yoga: Dec. 22 from 5:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.

It is super important to reserve some time for yourself, especially in preparation for the new year. The holiday season may be a stressful time as we run around preparing gifts, planning parties and participating in Secret Santa or White Elephant parties. A perfect way to de-stress is by practicing yoga. This event at Equinox South Beach allows you to relax under the moonlight at the beach with instructor Adrian Molina. This guided yoga will help you enter the holidays stress-free.

“Yoga is beneficial because it focuses on both mental and physical strength. It’s a great opportunity to connect your mind, body and soul,” junior Marina Tischenkel said.

Movie Under the Stars: Dec. 26 from 8:30 p.m. to 10:00 p.m.

Atton Brickell Miami is hosting this free movie screening featuring lots of food and drinks. Celebrate Christmas by gathering your friends and family members to enjoy popcorn and the movie “Elf.” The rooftop has a pool and a magnificent view of the city! If you have family or friends visiting Miami for the holidays, this is the perfect event to take them to.

Going to such an event like a circus show is not only very entertaining for the children but also for the adults. Circus shows can be a very important factor because it helps families get together and explore new and different things. It is not every day that children get to see a magic show.
