1. Find Your Favorite Cuban Sandwich

When staying at a resort near Miami, the Cuban sandwich is a must-try. The Cubano is a local take on the ham and cheese sandwich. It got its name because it was a popular feature at Florida cafes that catered towards Cuban workers and immigrants. There is some debate over the true ingredients of a Cuban sandwich, but it will definitely contain roast pork, ham, Swiss cheese, mustard and pickles. Regardless of the fine details, those fundamentals create the quintessential Miami snack. You’ll find the Cubano at most local restaurants, but everyone has their favorite. The best part is discovering your own.

2. Picnic In Bayfront Park
