Miami Beach for Thanksgiving Weekend
October 31, 2012 1:55 PM Subscribe
I'm going to be in Miami Beach with my mom for Thanksgiving weekend. Any suggestions for your favorite places to go in the Miami Beach area? My mom really wants to take a day trip to the Everglades, and I'd love to find some fun twentysomething things to do.

We're planning on having a low-key-adult-children-are-awesome-because-they-can-do-fun-travel-things-for-Thanksgiving weekend. Neither of us has ever been to Miami before. We're not going to have a car, except for the one day we drive to the Everglades, so looking for suggestions for things that are either walk/bikeable from South Beach or a relatively inexpensive cab-ride.
I'd like to find some recommendations for awesome laid-back coffee shops, divey bars, delicious food, beach-wandering, drag shows and other twentysomething type activities.
My mom (late-fifties) wants to spend a day at the Everglades, eat as much seafood as possible, and she wants to go to Little Havana.
We're flying in on Thanksgiving, so any suggestions for places to get dinner that would be open?
Also, my mom wants to do an Everglades canoe trip and maybe a fan boat trip. We were planning on renting a car for a day to drive down, but any thoughts on best things to see or trails? I'm a little meh on the canoe-ing, but maybe it's great and I'd be missing out?
