Going about your everyday routine can even be cyclical and sometimes when you want to step back you can’t afford to go on a vacation that will just tire you out. Luckily, I’m proud to say I live where you vacation. Down here in Miami, Florida tourists come from all over the world just to get a glance at our outstanding beaches, clubs, and hangouts. Just walking down Lincoln Road is a party as people greet you every step of the way as the upbeat Latin or club music fills the air. If you are lucky you may get to see something …spontaneous. And by spontaneous I mean people in walking around in costumes and stilts! And believe me they know how to welcome a tourist! Either way, there is so much to do here! Want to look your best; well shops around Aventura Mall are always stocked with the latest chic fashions. But, if you want some time to immerse in the classic Miami culture you can visit places like the Wynwood Art Walk or take a step into a fairytale at the Vizcaya Museum & Gardens. For more information about these places visit http://www.wynwoodartwalk.com/wynwood-art and http://www.vizcayamuseum.org/ .
Here, there is cultural diversity everywhere you go you just have to look in the right places. People from all across the globe check into our finest resorts such as the Ritz -Carlton or Fontainebleau Hotel to visit and all the while you may even pick up on a little Spanish. For more information about these resorts visit http://www.ritzcarlton.com/en/Properties/SouthBeach/Default.htm and http://www.fontainebleau.com/ . And with the beaches being at your disclosure it is at your sheer pleasure to visit our notorious beaches such as South Beach where you can tan, swim, Jet Ski, or even parasail! You can even take a drive down Ocean Drive to see the array of hotels designed in a dramaturgical style. Also, there is more than enough cuisines that inhibit all the cultural aspects of Miami such as Barton G which captures the oceanic feature of Miami and Little Havana which grasps the Cuban culture which makes up a big portion of Miami’s population.
However, if you are looking to find some celebrities, try Star Island. This island is or at one point has been inhabited by Sean Combs, Gloria Estefan, Don Johnson, Rosie O'Donnell, Shaquille O'Neal, Julio Iglesias, Madonna, Sylvester Stallone, and Elizabeth Taylor. And if you are looking to make this a child friendly vacation you can take your kids down to the Miami Seaquarium to see real life aquatic animals such as Orcas or Dolphins (which you swim with)! Want to make this educational for your kid? There is a Miami Children's Museum which is the ideal place to visit. For more information about these places visit http://www.miamiseaquarium.com/ and http://www.miamichildrensmuseum.org/ .
Best part of Miami is once you've had enough of the sun you can quickly go to the farm fields of Homestead and visit the The Fruit & Spice Park which exhibits over 500 varieties of fruits, veggies, spices, herbs, and nuts. Once you’ve finished that you may even quickly take a visit down to the Everglades for a view of Florida’s swamp lands and alligators. Careful, they bite! Bottom line is, down here in Miami, we have anything you can imagine and a range of activities for you to do because trust me; once you come here you may never want to leave!
