Most people think of Miami as being along the Atlantic Coast but are unaware of the Miami River. It originates in the Everglades and flows for about 5.5 miles before emptying into a canal at the Port of Miami. Near the river’s mouth in downtown is the Epic Residences & Hotel. On the opposite bank is the Miami Riverwalk. This delightful pedestrian path stretches for about a mile and is lined with cafes and boutique shops.
