Sun, Beach And Ocean: Miami All Over.
Miami was never really on our bucket list, yet last year, we decided to give this city a shot. Turns out, it’s not too bad for a short vacation in the sun.
Welcome To The Magic City.
Miami is a wild city known for glamour, cruise ships, cubans, beautiful people, parties and of course Miami Beach. The Magic City is a highlight for everyone visiting the United States. Here, you’ll come across the comfort and easiness from the southern states, an exiting night life, a cultural centre and an impressive skyline.
Miami Beach Has No Boundaries.
Miami Beach can be whatever you want it to be: easy-going, fun, stylish, gay, straight, family friendly or a singles playground. One comes to Miami Beach to have fun in the sun. On the southernmost tip of Miami you’ll be able to shop ’til you drop, enjoy the cultural aspects, dance until dawn and eat the most delicious meals.
From A Beach Village To A Megacity.
No matter if you want explore the new/renovated stylish hotels Gale, Lord Balfour or SLS South Beach for an after party, heavenly dine at the restaurants Yardbird Southern Table & Bar, Khong River House, Tongue & Cheek or Juvia, or rather visit old-school Miami Beach with its pastel coloured art deco buildings and museums, you’ll get your money’s worth.
Ocean Drive and Lincoln Road are known as great shopping-, nightlife- and food-hotspots, therefore you’ll come across a great variety of to-do possibilities. But if you rather want to enjoy kilometre long white sand beaches, then you’ve definitely come to the right spot in town! Miami Beach is the last station before the Caribbean and it sure feels that way. Sunbathing at South Beach is a Must-Do for any visitor. And the famous lifeguard towers in bright yellow, blue and pink, stripped or spotted are worth a walk up and down the beach at least once. Just as much as swimming in the warm, turquoise ocean is a must, observing the beautiful, trained and sometimes famous people should be on your to-do list.
A Few Tips For The Perfect Miami Vacation:
- It’s best to get around Miami Beach by Bike. Get a Citi Bike card and you’re good to go.
- Spend an evening on a rooftop bar/restaurant – Miami at night is amazing!
- If you want to eat healthy & fairly pricey, check out Juice & Java on Washington Avenue.
- Be sure to spend a weekend in Key West, the road trip alone will be worth your while.
Miami Beach has developed into an urban centre, with all it benefits that a small beach village and a megacity offers. We really enjoyed our stay here, yet we’re definitely not the ideal Miami vacationers. If you love adventure, action, jungle, trekking, and especially affordable hotels and good food, then Miami is probably a destination you’ll just want to visit for a layover or quick get-away. Not to give you the wrong idea: we had fun in the sun, but all in all, Asia is more our piece of cake. Even so, Miami still deserves the title Pearl of Florida.
