Built in 1963 by a then-28 year old immigrant from Cuba, Hilario Candela, it was the first stadium designed specifically for powerboat racing in the United States. Over the years, it has fallen into disrepair, but good news, Gloria Estefan is behind the push to renovate it and bring it back to its former glory!
Note: We entered at our own risk. People are NOT ALLOWED to just visit it and walk around. You will be met by angry work crews telling you to get out and security that will tell you that you can’t take any photos.
Do it the right way: We were told that you can get a ‘visitors pass’ from a city department somewhere. I guess, just google it.
