Discover Miami From Above

Catching a glimpse of Miami from above has never been easier! Long gone are the days where you had to book an expensive helicopter tour or climb a dozen flights of stairs in a high-rise. That’s because there’s a new attraction in the Miami sky (or at least almost 200 feet up): The Skyviews Miami Observation Wheel.

Miami’s own Ferris wheel was inspired by none other than the world-renowned London Eye, which has sat right on the River Thames since the year 2000. Now, Miami has a similar attraction, enabling visitors and locals alike to catch magnificent and unique views over Biscayne Bay, Bayfront Park and iconic downtown Miami from 200 feet in the air. 

In total, Skyviews Miami features 42 private gondolas. Thanks to climate control, even on the hottest of days, it is possible to enjoy a sweat-free view over the bustling city on the Atlantic coast.

A single ride on the ferris wheel lasts for about 15 minutes, which is more than enough time to snap a picture, selfie or to just take in the scenic views over Biscayne Bay and the Downtown Miami skyline.

Should you be an enjoyer of more sophisticated things, make sure to check out the First Class VIP gondola. Furnished with leather seats and offering even greater views thanks to a glass floor, the VIP experience also includes a longer journey time and optional catering.

If you want to get aquatinted with some of the greatest spots in Downtown Miami, then you shouldn’t miss the opportunity to take a guided city tour with an experienced local tour guide. This specific tour offered over on GetYourGuide even comes with a complimentary ride on the Skyviews Observation Wheel.
