Dont bother going to Miami its dangerous and over-rated and the only nice part of Miami is the strip Ocean Drive and Collins and the rest is a waste of time. And whoever said there is nothing to do around the arena is wrong, I live in the neighboring town Weston and go into Sunrise daily to run all my errands and eat.
you're confusing Miami with Miami Beach, different cities...indeed proper Miami it's pretty crappy (unless you visit Bayside), but the city of Coral Gables is beautiful, and Miracle Mile is even safer and better place to hang out than Ocean or Collins (although of course not as lively), there's also the Biltmore Hotel and Venetian Pool great places...
also in Coconut Grove there is Coco Walk although there are some rough areas close by, but by the same token some amazing areas like where the Planetarium and Vizcaya are located are beautiful places to visit.
