About the Aquarium:
From Gulf Stream sharks to the tiny organisms found within coral, the three-level Aquarium is a trip through the beautiful water habitats
of South Florida. Begin your journey on the ‘Vista’ level to marvel at hammerhead sharks and touch a stingray. Descend to the ‘Dive’
and ‘Deep’ levels for fantastic underwater views and interactive learning stations.
Spend a day of discovery at the Phillip and Patricia Frost Museum of Science, Miami’s only planetarium, aquarium and science
museum.
About the Planetarium: One of the most advanced spaces like it in the U.S., the cutting edge 250-seat Frost Planetarium takes you
on visual joyrides that both thrill and educate. Though it might seem like you’re really hurtling through space or weaving through a coral
reef or DNA strand, that ultra-real immersive experience is the result of a 16-million-color 8K visual system using six 3D-capable
projectors and surround sound. The dome is tilted forward at 23.5 degrees, allowing its 67-foot span to fill your field of vision as if you’
re flying. Imagery comes at you from above, below and the peripheral edges, creating a nearly 360-degree view of whatever
world you inhabit.
Lunch follows at “Crazy About You”, one of Brickell’s most upscale and prestigious culinary destinations, an experience not to be
missed, providing a unique lounge setting and waterfront dining.

with a passion for R&B music and Felicia Farrell, an up-and-coming black singer that he meets one fateful night on Beale Street.
Despite the objections of their loved ones (Huey’s close-minded mama and Felicia’s cautious brother, a club owner), they embark
on a dangerous affair. As their careers rise, the relationship is challenged by personal ambition and the pressures of an outside world
unable to accept their love. Dinner follows at Coral Gables renowned Bellmont Spanish Restaurant.
