South Beach has been on my bucket list for years, since the weather where I live has officially hit freezing temperatures I decided now was the perfect time for a warm getaway. Miami has so many options for everyone whether it’s relaxing at the beach, never ending restaurant choices, or dancing all night long.
Where to stay:
Sagamore: This is where I stayed, it’s pretty reasonably priced compared to some other hotels on South Beach. It was in a great location, mostly everything was walkable. The only downfall was the hotel was very very dark inside and if you’re looking for an actual hotel gym…this is not the place for you.
Lowes: I’ve had friends stay in this hotel and raved about their stay, will definitely being staying here next time!It’s about a block away from the Sagamore where I stayed, so also a great location.
Malibu Cafe: Organic, fresh ingredients located right on the beach. A restaurant with the best view
Rosetta bakery: Conveniently located across the street from the hotel I stayed at, it was a perfect spot to stop and grab a coffee and pastry
A La Folie Cafe: The lattes are huge and delicious and I highly highly recommend the croissants
Taco Taco: No frills spot to sit outside and grab some tacos
Sylvano: Local Italian spot, the pesto gnocchi did not disappoint
Paul’s: Perfect French cafe for dessert, coffee and people watching
11st diner: We actually went back twice, the service and staff was so friendly and the food was delicious
Joe and the Juice: If you’re looking for a healthier alternative theres plenty of smoothies, juices and sandwiches. Get the Joe’s club, so good!
The beach (Do I even have to mention)
Lincoln Road: Tons of shops both local and chain and also endless restaurants
Collins Ave: Filled with bars, hotels and shops
Ocean Drive: This street is lined with the famous Art Deco buildings…and also a ton of restaurant and shops (the reoccurring theme)
Bar: Sweet Liberty
On our last day we decided to explore Miami. We went to the famous Wynwood walls and wandered the shops around the area. Stop by Zac the baker for fresh pastries and a coffee as you explore the buildings covered in art.
The Miami Design District is home to many luxury stores such as Dior, Louis Vuitton and YSL. The area is filled with art, galleries and cafes, a great spot to spend an afternoon!
