I love Miami!  I am fortunate to have a very good friend who lives there, so when I visit, I experience the best of Miami.  The minute I get off the plane, I feel alive.  The beautiful culture is so diverse and rich it gets under your skin and in your blood.  Miami is nicknamed the “Capital of Latin America” because it is the second largest Spanish-speaking city.  Miami ranked fourth nationally in top destinations for millennials, so whether you visit with friends or family, you will have a fun time with the great shopping, delicious restaurants, amazing art galleries, beautiful beaches and more.  

First let’s start with the weather—every day is a beach day.   On a sunny day along the beautiful Atlantic waters, you can swim, surf, or jet ski.  And if you do not want to do any of that, you can just relax on the beach or by the pool and work on your tan while watching all the beautiful people.

Miami is well-known for having some of the top artists.  Art Basel offers public art that has attracted leading galleries and collectors. If you want to check that out, Art Basel will take place December 1- 4, 2016.  Art Basel has called Miami Beach its home since 2001 and showcases over 250 galleries from 31 countries and takes place at Miami Beach Convention Center.

Where art is found, fashion is not too far away.  There are plenty of great malls and shops in Miami.  You can find luxury retailers in the design district, chic boutiques in South Beach, and great stores on Lincoln Road.  Being a huge tourist city, there are plenty of shops for just about everything.

After the sun, art, and shopping, you will definitely be hungry, and there are the best mouth-watering restaurants that offer an unforgettable dining experience.  A lot of the restaurants draw inspiration from Latin American cuisine and the Cuban culture infuses Miami’s dining scene as well.  Whether it is fresh-caught seafood or locally-grown vegetables, the cuisine is delicious and varied.

After dinner, if you are looking for a sexy and vibrant scene, Miami has some of the best bars and clubs for a great place to end an evening.  New York might be the city that never sleeps, but I think Miami is right behind it.  There is a never-ending list for nightlife that is open until the wee hours of the morning.  So if you are looking to have a good time, you can always find a great party going on with live music or great DJs.  There is so much to choose from, so whatever vibe is calling your name, call ahead to get your name on a guest list and go enjoy.

There’s constantly something to do in Miami no matter what time of the day or night, and it is impossible to see everything because Miami attractions will dazzle your senses with all of the above.  Whether you are planning a family vacation or a visit with friends, you will create great memories that you will not forget. Viva Miami and enjoy my friends!
