Best of Miami

People often say Miami is the place to party, but trust me, Miami is much more than clubs and parties! Here are some things I’d recommend doing, along with places to eat and stay.

 

What to Do

Wynwood Walls

The walls and doors are soaked with bright, eclectic street art and graffiti. This is not just simple graffiti, but an outdoor art museum to be enjoyed at no cost. Whether you love Graffiti or not, I guarantee that you will be impressed and inspired upon visiting – the raw talent exhibited here is impressive and refreshing. This place also offers plenty of restaurants, shops, stores, and even night clubs.

Airboat at Everglades National Park

Everglades National Park is located South West of Miami, and it is well known for a bunch of wild alligators.  If you visit Everglades, I strongly recommend you take an airboat tour. The scenery was astonishing, and our guide was very knowledgeable about the wildlife and plants. We saw 2 alligators and even 3 wild raccoons!  The ride was smooth but exhilarating.

What to Eat

Mignonette

I introduced Wynwood Walls earlier for their vibrant murals, but there’s also a great seafood restaurant nearby.  The name is Mignonette Miami. Reservations are suggested as this place is busy.

For appetizers,  I recommend trying a sampler plate of the oysters, so you can get tastes of the different selections from West coast to East coast. Each oyster was fresh and excellent. We also tried their clam chowder and Lobster Deviled Eggs, and my highlight was definitely the chowder! It was probably the best chowder I ever had. For entrees, each one of us got the lobster roll and it was absolutely delicious. Their portion of lobster was very generous, and the crusty bread was delightful. For dessert, I strongly recommend you try their bread pudding! It was a butterscotch bread pudding with cayenne whipped cream, and the flavors were to die for.

A La Folie Café

A La Folie Cafe – This place was such a gem! I loved everything about it – I felt like I was in Paris. The interior was lovely and comfortable (there was even a cute kitty!), and their crape was phenomenal. I had a crape called NORMANDE – caramelized apples with a Calvados cream sauce. It was not too sweet and the flavor was absolutely delightful. Their cappuccino was perfectly presented as well.

Where to Stay

Ocean drive is a popular place to stay in Miami, but it is usually very crowded, loud, and expensive. If you are looking for somewhere to relax in front of a beautiful beach, I recommend you stay at Grand Beach Hotel Surfside – located in the vibrant town of Surfside, Florida. The hotel is right in front of the ocean, so all you have to do is walk out the back door and you will be amazed by their beautiful private beach. The hotel provides chairs, umbrellas, and towels.

The room was very spacious, clean, and decorated in all white. We were pleased with the big balcony, and the ocean view from the balcony was breathtaking. We also loved the super comfortable king bed.  We also really enjoyed the adult-only rooftop pool. Spectacular views, and you can have nice cocktails with great service.
