This arena is located in front of the Freedom Tower, and like this one, it's one of the main symbols of Miami, though the arena is a modern one.

Miami Heat gives you an awesome show, even if you are not fanatic about basketball. There is always something going on. Get tickets!

I love the arena. It is well lit and staffed with helpful attendants. There many different seating choices for sporting events, concerts, the circus and other special events. The only down side is the traffic which can bottleneck leaving the city.

When in Miami, you have to go support the NBA Heat at AAA ! Supporters are real fans and the Arena is a place to see.

Are you able to just tour the arena, like buy tour tickets of the arena? Just to see the inside etc without having an event on such as a concert.

Hi! I am sorry but I can't help you, I dont know.
My son is a huge Miami heat fan. We are going on vacation in June and I was wanting to surprise him with some Miami heat things to do. I do not know what kind of tourist attractions they have to visit in Miami if you're a basketball fan. Any suggestions?
