Besides its duties as home base for our beloved Heat, the American Airlines arena sees a lot of action. The 20,000 seat downtown arena is hard to miss, what with the thousands of taillights from the gridlock it induces or the massive outdoor screen facing the street. Regardless, the arena is where the big names bank. From Taylor Swift to Queen Beyonce - they all pass through, eager to play to Miami's music lovers. So while you'll struggle with traffic hell and overpriced drinks, you're paying for star power here - and you'll get it in spades.
