Cheap Things to Do in Miami This Weekend (VIDEO)

January is the perfect month to escape the cold and snow for a long weekend in the sun. And with cheap flights, chic hotels, 80-degree temperatures and miles of white sand beaches, Miami, Florida is an ideal getaway.  Travelocity Senior Editor, Courtney Scott, teamed up with travel host and expert, Sonia Gil in her hometown to hunt for the best cheap things to do in Miami.  The total cost of their day? Only $13!  Here is what they did:

1. 3rd Street Beach Yoga
Donation-based yoga every day at 7AM on the beach in the warm glow of a South Beach sunrise. Perfection.
Bring a towel or sarong to use. Mats don’t work very well on the sand.
3rd Street and Ocean Drive

2. Las Olas Cafe
A classic Miami spot with a hearty breakfast for only $3.99!  The over-flowing plate includes eggs your way, bacon, home fries and  bread!   Throw in a couple extra bucks for their Cuban cortado coffee!
6th St. & Euclid Ave.

3. DecoBike Tour
For only $4 you can rent a DecoBike for 30 minutes, which is more than enough time to explore the 17-block South Beach stretch!
Locations all over Miami

4. Beach Bumming
You can’t go to Miami without spending a day bumming it on the beach. Grab a book, a blanket, a bikini and enjoy a free day of fun!
14th Street and Ocean Drive

Travel Like the Lone Ranger in New Travelocity Web Series

In collaboration with New Mexico Tourism and Disney, Travelocity’s latest “Let’s Roam” weekly webisodes roam to New Mexico to discover the destinations and stories behind-the-scenes of Disney/Jerry Bruckheimer Films’ much-anticipated epic adventure, The Lone Ranger, opening in U.S. theaters on July 3.

Travelocity Senior Editor, Courtney Scott and the Travelocity Roaming Gnome embark on four different adventures inspired by the film and the destination.  From hot air ballooning over the Rio Puerco, where the town of “Colby” was built from the ground up, to road tripping into the mountains of Angel Fire through the Cimarron Canyon where the film’s epic train scene was shot, these special “Let’s Roam” webisodes showcase the diversity and beauty that New Mexico has to offer.

Two “Let’s Roam with The Lone Ranger” webisodes premiere this week; the first taking you inside Rancho de Los Suenos, near Albuquerque, NM, the site of The Lone Ranger’s “Cowboy Bootcamp,” and the second teaching you how to be a modern-day outlaw in New Mexico.

Two other webisodes will air throughout the Lone Ranger promotional period, including:

 “ Hot Air Ballooning Over the Rio Puerco” – releasing on Wednesday, July 3

“Summer Road Trip:  On the Trail of the Lone Ranger”  – releasing on Wednesday, July 10

The New Mexican locations visited in this custom co-branded series include Santa Fe, Albuquerque, Madrid, Angel Fire, Eagle Nest, and Cimarron Canyon State Park.
