Midtown Miami represents the communities of Wynwood, Edgewater, and Beverly Terrace. The area is a blend of residential towers, high-end retail stores, offices spaces, and more. Along with all of this, there are several parks to take Fido for a walk in. The "city within a city" offers plenty of room to walk and direct access to the waterfront. As you might expect, finding somewhere to eat is never a problem here as there are many amazing restaurants for you to check out.
Being close to the water means frequent light breezes in the summer when the temperatures are in the low 90s to help keep you cooled down. During the winter months, the worst you can expect is January temperatures dipping into the 60s and up to 59 inches of rain each year. The good news is that it never snows in Miami and the sun shines for approximately 250 days every year.
Midtown is heavily built up with plenty of high-rise condos and apartment buildings along with many other single and multi-family housing areas scattered through the area. Going for walks with Fido should take into account the fact that most of the terrain they have to walk on is going to be paved. Unless your pup is accustomed to walking on pavement, the two of you need to start out nice and slow. Give them plenty of time to build up some calluses on the pads of their feet. If you try to take them for a long walk before this happens, you will probably find yourself headed to the vet for bandages and salve.
With so much pavement, you should also take your walks in the early morning hours before it has had time to heat up to the point where it can burn your pup's paws, resulting in yet another uncomfortable visit to the vet.
Midtown is very fortunate as city planners worked hard to avoid turning the entire place into one big concrete wasteland. There are several parks in the area, many of which are dog-friendly. The best of these are in the southern section of town and include Biscayne Park and Margaret Pace Park.
Margaret Pace Park is located right on the waterfront and covers 8 acres. The park includes two fenced-in areas for dogs to run free, including one for larger dogs and one for smaller breeds. Unlike many parks, Margaret Pace Park offers plenty of grass for Fido to run around on with the other dogs. There are doggy waste bags and a trail that goes all the way around the park for the two of you to explore.
Biscayne Park, on the other hand, is really not much more than a wide-open expanse of grass. But then, what more could an energetic pup ask for?
