On April 12-13 in Miami and South Florida, The Cultural Landscape Foundation (TCLF) will host What's Out There Weekend Miami, providing residents and visitors an opportunity to discover and explore more than thirty publicly accessible designed landscapes from Miami to Palm Beach during free, expert-led tours. A What's Out There Weekend Miami Web site features downloadable information and a schedule of tours for all the locations.
The Weekend is an extension of the What's Out There database of America's designed landscapes. The free, online, searchable, Wiki-format, and authoritative database hosts illustrated entries of more than 1,500 parks, gardens and open spaces throughout the US, supported by more than 10,000 images and 750 designer profiles. What's Out There is now optimized for smartphones and other handheld devices and features What's Nearby, a GPS-enabled function that locates all sites in the What's Out There database within a 25-mile radius of any given location.
