Miami for Seniors?

Visiting Miami at the end of July with some relatives 65+ years old. They're not really into the beach scene but they still insist on visiting because Miami is such a large and famous city. They also don't speak english well. What are some activities they can do/sights to see?

Lunch with a view

Museum Visit

One of the Island Queen Boat Tours

Seniors I know love to see the sights - but tend to like to have more places to sit and enjoy for part of their sightseeing day. Many love to take long walks, enjoy a nice drink, etc.

but your relatives may like totally different things. So some advise on what they like is good.

We are seniors and really enjoyed the Bayside Marketplace and too a boat tour of the homes in Miami from there.

Will they have someone along who does speak English? (or Spanish?) That will make things a whole lot easier. Other than that I don't see anything to prevent them from having a great time. There are many things to do other than the beach or clubs.

Where will they stay, and how will they get around?

Some primary things to do in the Miami area:

South beach (Ocean Drive, South Pointe Park, Beachwalk, beach, Art Deco buildings, Lincoln Rd mall, restaurants). Boat tour from Bayside Marketplace, Wynwood arts district, Little Havana, Vizcaya, and more.

Some of these are already mentioned above, and they are not in any order.

What sort of things do they like to do in other places?
