You guessed it, the Venetian swimming pool is indeed associated with the city of Venice, Italy. Located in Coral Gables just outside Miami, The Venetian Pool is a little taste of Venice. It is a historic aquatic facility and attracts a large number of visitors each year.
The pool was built in 1923 in a coral rock quarry, it holds approximately 820,000 gallons fed from underground spring water. The Venetian swimming pool gets very busy in high season, however, tickets stop selling as soon as full capacity is reached.
The Wolfsonian FIU is a museum, library, and research facility located in the Art Deco District of Miami Beach. The museum features a range of exhibits that explore design at its finest and smartest and explore everything from book covers to propaganda pieces.
Built in 1926 on Flagler Street, the theater offers a range of shows and events throughout the year from concerts to comedy, but what will truly stay in your memory is the interior design. There are plenty of theaters in Miami, but none are as iconic as the Olympia Theater.
The theater is Moorish in style with splendid balconies and columns and is very popular for its beautiful interiors which differentiate it from other theaters.
Regardless, of the number of shows that may take place at the facility, it’s easy to see almost everything in the park in a matter of hours. It is perfect for natural science enthusiasts in general and for anyone who may never have seen wildlife so close up before.

Highlights include an electronically controlled pepper fountain, a huge amphitheater used for a range of musical events and performances, a tower for laser illuminations and has three very important monuments, the touch of friendship; a symbol of Miami’s relationship with Central and South America and the WWII Memorial.
The park holds a legacy of Miami history, which makes it a great place to visit.
Visiting Jungle Island is a wonderful way to spend the day as it combines adventure and nature with plenty of live entertainment. The eco-park offers a zipline tour for an incredible tree-to-tree adventure, meet wildlife up close and enjoy nature while having a bite or coffee at one of the onsite cafes.
