Miami Beach Of Course
No visit to Miami is complete without going at least once to the Miami Beach. There is something magical in the lifestyle connected to the city and to the Miami Beach. Everybody is outside, jogging, biking, roller-blading. If I would live in Miami I would exercise too! ☺ ( Maybe I should move to Miami?)
Ocean Drive, You Know You Want To See It
Notorious Ocean Drive is just one of those places you can’t miss if you are in Miami no matter how touristic it is. Numerous bars, restaurants and clubs are good for a lively stroll through the city. At night have a walk through and get to experience the Ocean Drive for yourself.
An absolute favourite of ours, Wynwood Walls is an old area but only recently it started to shine and show off its potential. It used to be one of those areas you avoid but nowadays it is home to many artist bars and restaurants and a place to go out in the city.
Calle Ocho Little Havana
In the heart of Miami is located Calle Ocho (8th street) also known as Little Havana district where you can feel the Latin rhythm, sip Cuban coffee, try local specialities or just wander around this special area. It is also home of the Calle Ocho Festival in case you are there in March.
The Art Deco Historic District
The Art Deco Historic District is located on Miami Beach between 5th Street and 23rd Street. It is home to +800 buildings built from 1923 to 1943 in Art Deco style in vibrant colours from pastel pink to bright blue, yellow and orange.

Shop Until You Drop In Lincoln Road
Lincoln Road is THE shopping street. Numerous shops, bars and restaurants make it perfect for shopping or just walking and enjoying the area in one of the cool restaurants and bars.
If you love food and want to explore a street full of colourful and wonderful little restaurants you need to visit Espanola Way. It is the perfect little mix for a night out, trying something new and enjoying great food. Our favourite was Pane & Vino Trattoria with homemade bread, pasta and tiramisu.
Existing now for over 30 years it has become a trademark of the city. Such a rich sandwich you will dream about it long after you return home. An absolute must try while in Miami.

An upstream and hip place known for Sunday brunches located on Miami Beach. Have a nice cocktail and chill in one of the beds.
Key West is a city 260km away from Miami and perfect for a 2-3 day trip or change of scenery. They say Key West has the most beautiful sunsets. What do you think?
