Party hearty or simply relax at one of these popular Miami-area oases

You haven’t been to Miami unless you’ve hit up one of the endless amounts of pool parties going on! Whether you want a raucous afternoon in the sun or a relaxing day to work on your tan, there’s something for everyone.

Clevelander at Marlins Park

This pool party is truly an “only in Miami” event you can’t miss! Opened in 2012, the pool is located right next to the dugout for you to have an up close and personal view of every home game. Throw on your swim gear and party is up with 250 other revelers, as well as dancers, body painting, and drinks. Go in on a group rate, or join the party and pay a cover charge. After the game, the party continues when the pool is open to everyone 21 and older.

For a quieter afternoon, head to WET West for a view of the Intracoastal on a comfy lounge chair.
