Miami is one of the slowest for US immegration. Make sure you arrive 4 hours before your flight is due or you might miss it !!! then follow neals advice and get a lounge pass from your travel agent here.
There is a left luggage section at Miami Airport or you can get a taxi to somewhere like the Sofitel Hotel just near the airport and use their facilities.
You might hire a car for the day and leave it at the airport office.
Things to see include the Art Deco area of Miami, Sawgrass Mills Shopping Mall Fort Lauderdale, an Airboat ride near Sawgrass, in fact Fort Lauderdale has far more to offer.
There are other shopping malls in Miami.
Failing that you can buy a voucher for lounge admission at Miami Airport which will allow you to stay there in comfort for three hours with refreshments and free drinks before your flight but make sure that you get one on the inside, through security, and in the right Concourse for your flight. The cost is £20 each and I think well worth it. .... Neil
