Since the publishing of this article, Zoo Miami has re-closed indefinitely.
Grilling season is upon us and – with Fourth of July falling on a Saturday – surely everyone will have their backyard grills working overtime!
Or, if you don’t feel like grilling yourself, there are also family meal bundles you can order.
Of course, there will be some fireworks displays, but you’ll have to watch most either from home or online.
Feel like going out? Zoo Miami and Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden both have admission deals this weekend.
As always, keep in mind that there are new rules in place AND that it’s hot out there. So be prepared!
Have a safe and happy weekend.

FOURTH OF JULY FUN & FOOD
It might be a challenge to watch fireworks displays live this year, but Facebook and YouTube livestreams are the next best thing to being there. There are several to choose from, and chances are you might be able to watch some from your yard or balcony.
We’ve also got you covered if you’re looking for good food deals for the weekend. Take your pick from barbecue-inspired family bundles and specialty menus at select restaurants, or enjoy a barbecue at Vizcaya Museum & Gardens. Remember that social distancing and masks are required. Click here to read about July Fourth events and deals.
DEALS AT ZOO MIAMI & FAIRCHILD
These events are canceled due to Zoo Miami’s closing:
