Whether you are trying to escape a snow-covered driveway or just ready to work on your tan, any trip to Miami should be plan according to your interest. No matter what time of year it is, Miami has something exciting to do for all visitors. It will take a couple days to do and see all that you want to in Miami, but it is all worth it.
For any vacation, it is great to settle in where you kick off your shoes and be walking distance to the entertainment.
South Beach offers all of that and some Cuban Coffee.
There are many beach resorts and places to stay close to the beach, but no matter where you choose to rest your head, you can enjoy true luxury while out on the beach at K17 Beach Club.
Located behind the Surfcomber Hotel at 17th Street and Collins Avenue, K17 has even more comforts than home. While there, lounge on an eight-person day bed or rent out a stand-up paddleboard for some adventure. All this with access to a full service kitchen and bar and staff tending to your needs.
“We are the only Eco-friendly beach club on the beach,” club representative Heather Reed said. “We have paddleboard rentals, a kids area with activities, and yoga on Saturdays. K17 is great for tourists, but is a place where a lot of locals come to.”
INTO THE CITY
After your day in the sun, a good way to beat the heavy beach crowd is by leaving the beach all together. Instead, spread out and see what the rest of the city has to offer!
Places like Coral Gables, Coconut Grove and South Miami offer a wide selection of shopping, restaurants and sites to be seen. Check out Merrick Park for a wide selection of high-end shops and some casual cuisine to top it off.
Just minutes away is one of Miami’s newest and most affordable wine bars, boasting a full array of more than 1000 vintages and flavors in a rustic Italian atmosphere. Click here to see the full wine list.
Cibo – 45 Miracle Mile, Miami 33134 – offers happy hour from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m., Monday through Sunday.
At Cibo, pair you favorite vino with a wood oven pizza or one of the homemade pastas. Most menu items are moderately priced below $20.
BEFORE YOU GO OUT
There are many ways to spend your evening in Miami, but prior to heading out for the night check out Cuban Crafters, one of the largest cigar outlets and favorites in Florida.
Cuban Crafters – 3604 Northwest 7th Street, Miami, FL 33125
Pick up one of your favorite brands or try one of Cuban Crafters’ signature selections. This isn’t your average cigar shop, once inside you get the flavor of the Little Havana community with locals playing dominos and smoking cigars over a glass of red wine. Watch the tobacco being rolled by legendary cigar maker Manuel Medina along side other Cuban-born master rollers.
