A Taste of my Week in Miami
If you’ve been following my story on instagram, you might have seen that a few weeks ago I was in Miami.
During my stay I have tried to see both sides of Miami. The one that is more about chilling by the pool and the urban side of the city.
First thing to know, Miami is an extended city. You won’t need a car if you plan to stay only on Miami beach, but you’ll have trouble to explore the city of Miami without one. I used uber most of the time and it was a convenient and a cost-effective alternative. Surely I haven’t had the time to see everything. But here is a sample of some of my favorite discoveries for a week in Miami.
Picking your hotel is an important step if you plan to relax a bit. The Edition hotel was truly a great choice. Every part of it was agreeable, the location on Miami beach, the pool area, its two restaurants (The Matador and the Market).
About the food, Miami is full of great restaurants, you’ll be spoiled for choice. Cecconi’s for a lush Brunch, The Bakehouse for the best pancakes ever, Taquiza, a must for tacos and Yardbird for its southern dishes such as the yummy fried green tomatoes. Also At night a drink at “Dolores but you can call me lolita” is required, the terrace is really nice.
As you know, Miami is also well known for it’s penchant for art and design. The popular Wynwood Walls and all the cool shops it includes such as Warby Parker sunglasses are a proof of it. Also you shouldn’t miss the best donuts in town, The Salty Donut for a sugary break while you are hunting for the best painted walls. If you thirst for art hasn’t been quenched, you’ll find what you need at The Perez Art Museum.
Looking for nature
Miami is located in a very prolific area with plenty of nature to see. If you have the time, renting a car to the everglades is totally worth it. FYI, take the south entry (Ernest F. Coe Visitor Center) to enjoy a more peaceful and less crowded trip. You have plenty of time in one day to go down to the Flamingo Visitor Center.
By the way if you want to travel in peace, I have created a packing checklist that will help you relax and enjoy the journey.
