Let’s Travel: Miami.

May 25, 2012 by Carolina

I grew up in Miami so I go down there often to visit loved ones, like this weekend for example — I’m headed home for the holiday! I was telling my friend about my homeward bound weekend & he was so excited to hear about Miami because he’s never been, he asked me for suggestions on places to go & things to see when he makes it down to beautiful Miami.

I never really think of going to Miami as a big trip but after talking to him I realized that Miami is a dream destination for many people. Both Katie & I love to travel so we share our travels often with you (like Ireland, IsraelScotland, South Africa, The Congo, to name a few). This time I’m going to share with you my favorite things to do in Miami, my home turf! Next time you go to Miami make sure to check out:

Brickell DriveBrickell Drive has really grown the last few years, it is now a street lined with sky scrappers, restaurants & bars. I love walking down Brickell & checking out cute little shops, grabbing a bite at restaurants like Rosa Mexicano & grabbing drinks at Dolores But You Can Call Me Lolita.

Coconut Grove Farmers Market: Did you know Miami is known for it’s delicious produce? From Mangos to Strawberries, some of our favorites fruits & vegetables are grown in Miami. I love paying a visit to Coconut Grove Farmers Market when I’m home, it has the freshest produce around, homemade to go meals, pastas & rice — everything you need to stock your pantry!

Little Havana: The Cuban community is alive & well in the streets of Little Havana, a charming, authentic Cuban community in Miami. This is the place you want to go for the best Cuban coffee in town! I love Cuban food so I love making a pastelito or Cuban Toast run in Little Havana, enjoy the colorful monuments, the friendly people & the culture.

South Beach: No trip to Miami is complete without setting foot on Ocean Drive. Art deco architecture, art, the best restaurants in the city & most importantly, a pristine beach await! Plus, this running trail is not too shabby.

Vizcaya Museum & Gardens: A beautiful mansion on the water with over ten acres of lush gardens & plush surroundings. It’s gorgeous!

These are just a few of my favorites but Miami is chalk-full of amazing things to see & do. If you’ve never been to Miami make it a point to take a trip down south, it truly is a magical city full of energy, culture & sun!

Have you been to Miami? What’s your favorite thing to do in Miami?
