Experience Tryst: The 3,000-square-foot theater inside Faena Hotel Miami Beach provides the intimate setting for Alan Faena’s new original production—Tryst: A Lovers’ Rendezvous. Emcee and headlining performer Kat Cunning leads the ensemble cast through a riveting evening of sensory stimulation that includes burlesque, cirque nouveau, show-stopping musical numbers, and “stories of explicit escapades from a bewitching mistress’s past, present and future loves.” At press time, the show had dates (Thursdays to Saturdays) scheduled through July.

Ride an Airboat: The chances of having your selfie photo-bombed by an alligator increase dramatically at Everglades Holiday Park, where locals and tourists explore the River of Grass during exhilarating airboat rides. Observe gators in their natural element during a 60-minute narrated tour; the airboats make plenty of stops, but they also reach speeds of 60 mph. After the ride, take turns holding a baby gator or check out one of the live alligator shows.
