An innovative travel resource site allows users, whether Miami natives, visitors or tourists, to discover the diverse and colorful culture of Miami-Dade County for an affordable price.
Specifically designed for high school and college students on a budget, Culture Shock Miami offers dozens of fun and exciting performances and exhibitions in Miami-Dade every week of the year.
“Now, you can go, see and enjoy theater, dance, music, art exhibitions and festivals year-round for an affordable price,” Cultureshockmiami tells visitors.
The site was made possible by the Miami-Dade County mayor and Board of County Commissioners, the Miami-Dade County Department of Cultural Affairs and the Cultural Affairs Council, The John S. & James L. Knight Foundation, and Ticketmaster.
For just $5, high school and college students, ages 13-22, can experience these incredible Miami cultural activities.
Another site, Miami.going.com, additionally serves as a convenient resource site for tourists of cities like Miami, Atlanta, Chicago, Las Vegas and Honolulu. Going.com offers users the latest things to do, places to see and people to meet in whatever destination they plan to go.
Furthermore, Miami.going.com makes your search easy and convenient with these simple steps listed on its website:
How it works
