Miami should be the next spot on your list of travel destinations. I recently visited this fun, fabulous, and exciting city and compiled a to-do list. Check out some of my favorite spots!
The Miami Beach Edition hotel is incredible. It has beach access, a beautiful pool, and three great restaurants. Whether you want to hang out by the pool all day and snack on chips and guac while sipping a piña colada, or want to watch the windsurfers on the beach, The Edition has you covered. Not to mention the fact the rooms have amazing views (of both the beach and Miami), and super comfy beds!
Lincoln Road Mall
This long street of shops is the perfect way to spend a windy, cloudy day. Although getting a little sun while carrying your new clothes isn’t always a bad thing! This outdoor mall has everything from Zara to Athleta, from Ted Baker to Madewell. The outdoor strip also has great eats so you can fuel up after carrying all those bags!
This crowded little café is right in the middle of the Lincoln Road Mall action. Packed both indoors and outside, Nexxt has a large menu of seafood salads, soups, and entrees. The vibe and food of this cafe are not to be missed.
This place is a must on your Miami list. Not only is the atmosphere great, but the food and service is amazing. Tripling as a restaurant, hotel, and club, Casa Tua offers a unique vacation destination. Considering the weather is great in Miami, I suggest eating outside amongst the lanterns and trees.
Miami Design District
The Miami Design District holds many high end shops, like Hermes and Louis Vuitton. I love walking around these shops and seeing the latest trends.
Michael’s Genuine Food and Drink
Michael’s Genuine is a simple and easy place to stop and eat during a busy day of shopping. Served in small portions, all dishes are meant to share. I ordered the steak and eggs, topping it off with an amazing blueberry crumb cake. Even though I ate my weight in food, because the portions are so small, I felt great the rest of the day!
Joe’s Stone Crab
This restaurant is famous in Miami. They don’t take reservations, and the wait for a table on any given night is about an hour at the least–even thought the restaurant seats 450 at a time. Joe’s has seriously good stone crabs—and other fish plates. The restaurant is huge, and has a nice bar and waiting area. If you aren’t in the mood to have a sit down meal, Joe’s To Go is always a great option, as well.
These walls are a beautiful representation of the Miami culture. It is more or less a series of warehouse buildings that have striking graffiti on the sides. Tony Goldman (a Miami-based real-estate developer) developed this project by installing gates to break up large wall spaces. His idea was to feature small, lesser known artists that wouldn’t be able to otherwise display their work. These walls are the perfect place for an afternoon walk and photoshoot, which will guarantee you a great Insta. Below is the link, check out some of these amazing creations and awesome artists!
This trendy sushi/ Asian-fusion spot on the water leaves you feeling nothing short of 100% satisfied. Served family style, everything on the menu was meant to be shared. A must-order from this restaurant is the Japanese Risotto. They make it at the table, and it is divine! This restaurant was a great way to end my trip to Miami.
