    Traveling While Black

    Miami is always a go to destination within the US when want to just hit a good beach and live life up. Getting to Miami is easy as it’s a major international hub so flights always in and out at affordable rates. There are so many areas to explore depending on what your preference is for your trip. You can rest and relax, find adventure, have great night life Miami has it all. The cost of a Miami trip can be low if you’re on a more low key vacation and it can also soar way up if you’re trying to live your best life. That’s the fun of Miami I have been so many times and done trips on every end of the spectrum and had fun on all of them. BETA TEST

    Miami AKA my second home,
    Come from France and discovered Miami 7 years ago. I wouldn’t know exactly how to describe it but the first few moments I spent in Miami made me feel that special vibe.
    Miami is dynamic, warm and rich in culture (American but also Caribbean). No matter what kind of mood you’re looking for, you’ll find what you need! Shopping? Dancing? Sports? Beach? Chilling around the pool? Art? Culture? Luxurious and prestigious places? Unexpected encounters? Good food? Fun? Party? Good vibes? Sports/adventures? Water activities? Warm climate all year round? Ok Miami is the place to find it all

    Since Miami is the place to go for partying, I recommend : Kiki on the River and Nikki beach for Sunday brunch, Story and Cameo for nightclubs, Wood tavern for backyard parties (such a real vibe) and KOD if you intrested in club with… dancers

    Going to the beach while in Miami is a must, I like Miami Beach (touristic) and walk or exercise along the coastline is beautiful, Ocean Drive street is nearby and that’s always a fun area for drinks and dining. During the day I recommend a free walking tour, make sure Little Havana is visited. If you like the beach as me, a day tour to Key West is fun and a great way of meeting people, drinks and great fresh seafood.

    My most recent trip to Miami was during spring break earlier in March…Before this whole…you know…pandemic.

    Whew! If you know, YOU KNOW. Miami is always a vibe. The best time to go in my opinion is during Spring Break, Memorial weekend and or during Carnival in October if you’re there to turn up obviously. First stop is usually on the strip (ocean drive blvd) in South Beach and from there you can go to the beach, eat at one of the many bars/restaurants on the strip (try to go on happy hours).

    I also love stopping by Fingalicking, The wings stop, ChefCreole(in little Haiti) and many other black owned restaurants.
    Wynwood is also a great area to hang out and go out.

    There’s so much to do in Miami! Visit Little Haiti, the BEST food is there, the cultural center is very lively with music and activities. Check out Wynwood, I must warn that it is always pretty busy though. Also visit Española Way, it’s my favorite part of Miami Beach. Enjoy the Caribbean touch that the city has and soak up all of the culture!

    Whenever I’m in Miami, visiting Little Haiti is an obvious must. It’s a neighborhood in which Haitians and Haitian-Americans have preserved Haitian culture for generations. But where is the town going? Currently, it’s experiencing one of the largest waves of evictions due to soaring rent prices. Real estate investors and developers have taken interest in Little Haiti because of its central Miami location. This push to transform the neighborhood into “Lemon City” or “Magic City” is forcing local businesses to close or relocate and leaving others without homes. This brings me to remind us all that investment and support in our own, in each other, and in ourselves – even at the most micro levels – make huge differences in a community. Let’s keep spreading love and light to one another and challenge ourselves to do even better?❤

    Miami is definitely my favorite city in the US! I’ve been several times and usually stay in South Beach but I decided to opt for something different and stayed in Brickell/Downtown. We got an Airbnb at the Guild and OMG it was the best Airbnb I’ve ever stayed at. The building is half hotel/half apartment so it has a more homey feel to it. On arrival we got a personalized tour of the building and it literally has everything you’d ever want. There’s a rooftop pool, a bar, a gym with wall to wall glass overlooking the city, a restaurant, a cafe, a park for dogs. You literally don’t even have to leave the building lol. Our room was spectacular with beautiful modern decor and an amazing balcony view. The building is located right off Biscayne Blvd, the American Airlines arena is walking distance and Bayside Marketplace is literally right across the street. There’s also scooters everywhere so we opted to ride on the scooters rather then take an Uber. Overall I definitely recommend booking a stay at the Guild in Miami!
    Airbnb was $85/night before fees & taxes. Here’s the link: https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/31564616?s=67&shared_item_type=1&virality_entry_point=1&sharer_id=164718825

    Lived in Miami for 3 years and I took it for granted. There’s so much culture, diversity, and good food to be had there. My favorite nightclub has to be Blackbird (I’ve never had a bad time there)! Try croquettas and Columbian food while you’re out there too. My favorite beach that is far away from tourists as possible is Sunny Isles beach! So quiet and so open. If you like nude beaches, go a couple of blocks down to Haulover Beach.

    Miami will have you learn some Spanish by the end of your trip. So many Spanish speaking people that are friendly. If you want some good food visit Versailles Restaurant in Little Havana. Its got the best Cuban food. Then head to the famous Ball and Chain spot for the liveliest Salsa night out. If your in North Miami Beach I would definitely check out Paquitos Mexican restaurant. Its much more laid back but has a colorful vibe and they even play some live music.

    I visited Miami September 2019 which is hurricane season, I got lucky and completely missed a hurricane but did get some rain, on and off showers but nothing to ruin the trip (weather tip for those considering visiting at that time).
    So much to do and see in this city but it will mostly likely cost you a few bucks. The famous ocean avenue which houses the Versace mansion where you can stay at the now hotel and or visit the restaurant for lunch and or dinner is a bit pricey which dinner for two people (cocktails, appetizers, entrees and dessert) might be around 250.00$. Miami Beach and South Beach has so much to offer with clubs, restaurants, bars, shops, museums, etc. When trying to visit the popular places prepare to spend extra cash as drinks and food are expensive and nobody likes a non tipper so be nice where you can :)
    The streets are lined with hotels, most likely you will pay more the closer you are to the beach and or the nicer/popular the place you stay. I stayed away from the beach a bit at the Mondrian which is a cute Art Deco style hotel where some celebs frequently stay (a bit expensive but worth it!). Ocean avenue & Collins Avenue are constant parties and have several things to do. I preferred to uber during my trip which from my hotel to each place I visited was not far so I save a few bucks by not renting a car for the weekend. The city is lively, fun for all, filled with things to do, good food but can definitely get expensive. So depending on your lifestyle and budget I would save and research prior to visiting.

    While looking at street art in Wynwood I decided to try Fireman Derek’s Bake Shop. I saw it on Instagram. I have a crazy sweet tooth and this satisfied it to the fullest. They have the best pies! I order the Nutella pie, a brownie, blondie and a cookie. Ate them all! If you’re in Miami carving sweets you have to go here!

    If you love incredible views as much as you love great food, than the Rusty Pelican is 100% the place to be in Miami. I have lived in the city for a few years now and have yet to find a better angle of the bay and skyline than from this beautiful restaurant. There is a mandatory valet ($6) and reservations are encouraged as the best seats are outside by the water’s edge. As you dine you will see seaplanes takeoff, kayaks and jet skis glide by, and admire yachts of all sizes. The food and drink prices do reflect the ambiance as dinner entrees range around $30-50 and cocktails are $16, however, I recommend going during brunch for daytime lighting and $15-$30 entrees including the delicious crab huevos rancheros. The Pelican is open from 11a-11p/12a daily with happy hour being from 4-7p M-F in the lounge only, featuring $8 cocktails and $8-$12 gourmet mains.

    Let’s see, where do I begin. Miami is a beautiful city , especially south beach. South beach offers a lot of different things to do. If you love to club then hit south beach. If you love to eat then hit south beach. If you just love to relax and be on the beach enjoying the warm water and the sounds of the ocean then hit south beach. I recently went a few weeks back and I have no complaints, besides parking! It’s soo hard to find parking because there’s so many tourist! But once you find a spot you better pay a good amount to the parking meters if you think you’re going to stay on the strip for a long time. The strip has tons of bars and places to eat. Sugar factory, The Licking, Fat Tuesday and many more. Most Brothers & Sistas hit fat Tuesday’s for their famous slushy drinks and affordable food! South beach also has a handful of stores to shop in! They have sneaker stores and a big souvenir shop as well. One other spot that I really enjoyed was wynwood! They have tons of walls with dope art on them ! Im a photographer so this place was heaven for me lol. With all that said, Miami offers tons of things to do , that you’ll never get bored. Have fun !

    I went there, and I reallly like it.
    I went to different hotels( I’ve done this in other cities, I really liked it. Each hotel have different styles, and at the end it’s cheaper to do this when you go to 3 to 5 stars hotels.
    I’ve liked the diversity of food, there are a lot of things to do ( at day and at night).
    Everything is beautiful, people are nice.
    Go to bayside Marketplace you can find everything there : restaurant and bars ( I found my new favorite restaurant 《Chili’s》), of course SHOPPING I love this place because there are a lot of shops for everyone, you have a amazing view of boats and the city.
    I would recommend to go in Miami in the summer.

    I went to Miami for a girls trip with four of my close friends and it was so much fun. We arrived on a Friday morning and left Monday morning which was a good amount of time. We stayed at the Vintro Hotel which was close to Collins Ave. It is a boutique hotel so the room was a little small for all of us. It’s definitely a hotel more for couples. We walked to most of the places we visited on South Beach. The Social Club was a good place to grab lunch and drinks. The staff was very friendly and the food was pretty good. For dinner, we went to Lario’s on the Beach which is Emilio and Gloria Estefan’s Cuban restaurant. Great food and amazing location, I highly recommend. At night we went to Story which is like most clubs, so very expensive. Three shots cost over $50. On Saturday, we went to the Hyde Beach day party at the SLS Hotel. THIS IS A MUST! We got a day bed which was the best decision ever, the total cost was around $2000. You can get drinks that come in a giant glass like the size of a giant vase. There’s the option to go with a promoter but I don’t think the experience would be as fun. If you’re going for a birthday or bachelorette, I definitely recommend splitting the cost of a day bed. At night I also recommend going to Wall Lounge. I personally preferred the vibe here more than Story since it wasn’t as clubby. The music was also better in my opinion because it was less EDM and more hip hop. When walking on Collins Ave, beware of the people who try to sell you party packages. You should also leave South Beach to checkout Wynwood.

    We had the most amazing time lounging at the beach at Fontainebleau, mostly because of our incredible waitress Maria! She is sincere, funny, and so considerate of her guests. She served us all day on Friday, and then went out of her way to serve us Saturday when we found ourselves in a busy section of the beach to which she wasn’t assigned. She remembered our drink orders and food preferences from one day to the next, and made our experience feel so personal. I will recommend

    I recently did a solo one day trip to Miami just to get away from the Houston winter. I didn’t want to spend a lot of money (very easy to do in Miami) and I also wanted to do something different than the usual beach and party itinerary. I spent half of the day in Little Havana, Miami’s historic Cuban neighborhood. Along Calle Ocho there is much to do, see and eat. I spent a lot of time in the art galleries and even bought a piece to bring back home (at the Luis Molina gallery). There are cafes along the street where you can try Cuban food (I recommend getting coffee as well), and if you’re looking for a lively scene a couple of the places had live bands playing. Other than in the galleries, there’s art everywhere, from the murals, graffiti and rooster statues (my favorite). I also checked out Domino Park, where old timers gather to play dominoes as tourists and other bystanders watch. If you want a more formal tour, there’s a visitor center where you can sign up for one or buy a guide pamphlet.
    After leaving little Havana I went down to South Beach where I had booked a hostel – Generator. It was my first time staying at a hostel and I was impressed by this one. It was affordable (of course, why I chose it), very clean and modern. I shared a dorm with three other girls and it was ok for one night although I would probably go with a traditional hotel if I was staying longer, just for privacy. It’s right across the street from the beach so the location can’t be beat for the price.
    I spent the afternoon walking along the beach and people watching. In the evening I took a walk on Ocean Drive, grabbed some dinner and bar hopped a little. When it comes to food there are options to fit different budgets, same with nightlife.
    Miami has a reputation for glitz and glam but you can definitely have fun on a budget, and off the beaten path if you prefer.

    Miami is always a great idea! One of my favorite US destinations because you can count on the weather more of the year than California as a whole when combining things to do. Miami is expensive though! Traveling while black is great considering it is a major black city, but it is America some prepared for the nuances of American structure that is not built for black people. We have family in Miami and that is always a good idea in reference to saving money on lodging; however I would advise everyone to Airbnb on North Miami Beach/Sunny Isles for a more relaxed experience. North Miami is more relaxed, still a short drive to South Beach for the obvious never ending entertaining people watching, and its a lot cheaper. Most of those high rises have rooftop pools, and walking distance to a more calm beach. The Cuban history is obviously amazing although they have a different attitude than Cuba considering tourist money is more common. Wynwood is a must for Instagram pics and just great street art, plus the bars are great. Downtown Miami/Brickell has some great brunch spots. Prime Fish is one of my favs, then Nikki Beach on South beach. A bit pricey but great scenery. Oh and don’t sleep on flying into Ft. Lauderdale or Palm Beach for a cheaper flight. FLL will still be a decent Uber ride especially to North Beach. Renting a car is an affordable option while there, just beware of parking at the hotels!

    Miami is always a good time. I love walking down south beach. You always got to stop by Fat Tuesday’s and Wet Willies to get drinks. Chilling on the beach relaxing is alway good. The nightlife is always lit like going to LIV on Sunday, Story, IVY, Mansion, etc. Food could very expensive. Miami is always a good 4/3night getaway.

    Miami is a very cosmopolitan city! The panels are translated into English, Spanish and Haitian Creole, to show you some of the diversity. Even though I was on internship, I was able to take advantage of it a little because my sister lived there. I lived at Ocean Drive, in an apartment five minutes outside the sea. When I had the time, I would go for a walk to South Pointe Park, we have a beautiful view of the beach and South Beach. Preferably go in the morning, sunrise is beautiful. Sunset is nice to see as well. I loved Wynwood, and that was where I was doing my internship. At each break I take the opportunity to walk the streets of Wynwood Art District and admire the murals, and some of the street messages. Really, I think it’s my favourite neighbourhood.Especially do not hesitate to go to the Art Walk every second Saturday of the month between 18h and 22h. Art galleries and boutiques open their doors during this time slot. Food trucks are in the streets, there is music and everything. The people of Miami meet at this time to spend a good evening. It’s really cool!
    I had the chance to take a boat tour from Bayside, where I discovered the famous celebrity villas at Star Island, Palm Islands & Fisher Islands.Who says Miami, Shopping says. Shopping means shopping, Mall and Outlets. In Miami, you have a choice! You have Dolphin Mall, Sawgrass Mills, but you also have Lincoln Road. You’ll find on this shopping street the Kardashian, Victoria’s Secret, M.A.C, Sephora, GAP, etc. I ruined myself at Victoria’s Secret, there were madness promos! I also bought a $30 Cortez pair from Nike Factory in Sawgrass, a $15 pair of vans, clothes, and lots of other stuff for my family and cheri (clothes, shoes, hats, souvenirs, etc.). It’s really worth it! We arrived in Sawgrass at 12 and left at 9:30. A real shopping day! A tip, choose the Malls and Outlets over the Lincoln Road, you’ll save money. There is also Ross, who offers you brands and other inexpensive items. But anyway, you have to dig for good stuff.I also spent a weekend in the Everglades with the alligators! My sister’s friend had a house there, so we spent the weekend there. It was super cool! We didn’t go out on a boat, everyone told me it wasn’t worth it for the price it was. It didn’t stop me from seeing the alligators! Little Havana is also unavoidable. There you will find funny papis playing domino at Domino Park. You can buy your cigars at the Cigar Factory, drink a mojito in a typical Cuban bar, walk the streets and hear a nice salsa that will make you want to dance. A small depayment while staying in Miami. I also visit the Vizcaya Museum, it is a villa in the Italian style of the sixteenth century with beautiful gardens. If you have the opportunity, do the Miami Keys. Key West especially!

    Miami is great for if you wish to escape the cold of the north, but don’t wish to spend too much to leave the country. Still a developing city, you will notice much construction still going on (depending on if you leave South Beach to explore!). South Beach, I find, is a little too touristic for me so typically I would head over to Blackbird Ordinary in downtown Miami or anywhere in Wynwood for a night out. Depending on the time of year you visit, there is always an event happening as Miami attempts to keep up with the world. Art Basel is great in December, carnival is great in October, etc. South Beach has a great beach, but, locals don’t frequent it too much as there are far too many tourists. Fort Lauderdale Beach near Las Olas, in my opinion, is better and Hollywood beach if you want something a little quieter but still exploding with things to do. Being by the sea, there are tons of great seafood restaurants. American Social os one of my favs in Brickell, GGs in Hollywood, and pretty much anywhere by the water! Hard Rock is also located in Hollywood and has tons to do.

    If you’re a history buff, Miami is probably not the best place for you, but, there are some great museums if you don’t mind driving outside of Miami. The Ah tah thi ki museum is located over an hour away in Clewiston and focuses on the Seminole culture, Morikami Gardens is situated near Boca Raton and is focused on Japanese culture. For closer attractions, you can always visit the PAMM for contemporary art and a great view, or the History Miami for finding out more about Miami’s history.

    If you enjoy being black, check out any events that Social Xchange might be having on eventbrite. These are filled with young professional black individuals that come out for a good night. Unlike some spots in wynwood or south beach where people are more concerned with looking good, the crowd is very “Atlanta-ish” at these events.

    For the hippies amongst us, be sure to check out the Farmers Markets such as “Coconuts Grove Farmers Market”, or again, if you don’t mind a 25 minute drive; the yellow green farmers market in Hollywood on the weekends. Plenty of fresh, organic, and multi-dietary produce. Beautiful loving vibes too!

    Miami is amazing, and the beaches are beautiful, everyone is partying. It is easy to meet new people. But it is best to pay attention by avoiding certain neighborhoods for better security. Avoid making too many payments with your credit card, and it is better to have cash.
    Other than that, Be sure to have fun and enjoy yourself to the fullest.

    I love Miami. It gives you an international vibe. The shopping and food is amazing. You could pretty much do everything you need on the strip. Flights are usually really cheap so you can budget your money elsewhere. I’ve never gone as a single. From MY experience the single men seem to be attracted to other races. They have amazing romantic and eclectic hotels that give you a great experience. I don’t know how much anything cost their because it’s always been an all expenses paid trip

    Plenty of activities to do, Top golf- one of the best things they recently added to Miami, you can go during the day or night great food and drinks, it can be a little pricy if you’re not in a group but overall a great experience even if you don’t know how to golf. You also have IFLY- affordable and also a great experience especially if you’re trying to get out of your comfort and get tossed around in the air, you literally get to feel like your in zero gravity for a few minutes and you also get do a photo shoot right after and your able to purchase the footage of you flying. Lastly one of my favorites is water taxi, it’s about that takes you all over to stops either restaurants or bars, you get to drink, relax enjoy the view and have great food.

    Love Miami, Florida. I’d recommend staying in South Beach, Miami. We stayed at a Townhouse https://www.expedia.ca/Miami-Hotels-Art-Deco-Townhouse-Apartments.h13276574.Hotel-Information that was 10 minutes walk to the beach, walking distance to Ocean Drive to enjoy all the nightlife and entertainment. Search for an air bnb that’s available for your party and cost friendly too, and make sure it’s within walking distance to the beach.

    I’d recommend getting a hop on hop off tour to view all of Miami, including downtown Miami.

    My friend and I did a 2 hour boat tour that took us around different spots as well.

    You can also get a day tour to the Bahamas for $100 US plus taxes. The vendors have different options for you to choose from for your trip to The Bahamas. We went for the Grand Lucayan day tour from Fort Lauderdale. The tour companies arrange a shuttle bus for pick up from your area of accommodation.

    Amazing place, and lots of entertainment to offer in this vibrant city.

    While in Miami there’s never really a dull moment depending on when you go. I’ve gone to Miami about 3 times, twice around college Spring Break season (Mid March) and then once for New Years. New Years was nothing in comparison to Spring Break Season. When going there for Spring Break, the strip is PACKED, people are constantly drunk, and it seems like there’s always a party going on. Whether you just grab drinks from a random spot on the strip, go to clubs, or something else, there’s never a dull moment. However, I have realized that the older I get, the less appealing it is to travel there during spring break time. I recently went a few months post grad and realized I kind of hated it, the atmosphere was extremely young and immature, it seemed like the streets were so packed that you couldn’t move presumably from all the college students who aren’t of age to actually get into the bars. King of Diamonds, the strip club is usually a must see. The most popular bars are Wet Willies, Senior Frogs, and Fat Tuesday’s. As for food, the food on the strip is semi expensive and isn’t worth it since all of the restaurants charge an automatic 20% gratuity. I wasn’t amazed by any of those restaurants and felt as if I was better off eating at Chipotle or somewhere quicker. Miami is definitely not the place to go if you’re on a budget, but it is always a memorable time .

    Ahhh! Miami! My home city. First and foremost, South Beach is not Miami. There’s so much more to see and do in the greater Miami Dade County. Wynwood is new up and coming neighborhood with no shortage of bars, lounges and restaurants. Wynwood is also become famous for its street art. Bayside is a fun place to go shopping, people watch, dine by the water, or catch some live music. You also have the Miami Sea Aquirium, Miami Zoo, Jungle Island, Vizcaya Museum and Gardens, Venetian Pool, Bayfront Park, Perez Art Museum, and lots more. The weather is usually great, except for the months of August-October. Those are our peak hurricane season months and we typically get a lot of rain and thunderstorms. If your staying in Miami for a while I recommend taking a weekend trip to The Bahamas (40 min flight) or The Keys (3 hour drive). If you’re into the nightclub thing, LIV on Sunday is still a pretty big deal. They always have a celebrity appearance. Be sure to get connected with a club promoter to get you in. You’ll never get in standing in the general entry line. There’s a 24hour stripclub/rooftop lounge and restaurant called 11even. You will never get bored in Miami lol.

    So I love Miami but I am over it. It tends to attract very pretentious people but it is a good time. Don’t waste your time going to LIV unless you have a table (the bouncers tend to be very selective and money talks more than looks). I enjoy the beach and the strip. Mangos, Mokai, Delano and the W hotel club are my favorite go to spots. I’ve stayed in an Airbnb and The Dream Hotel and I would suggest staying in a hotel. When we were there, we got very lucky in the sense that our hotel had a pool party. We were able to have a good time for free! All in all, Miami is lit, I’ve been too many times too say I’m not sick of it.

    This place is just party central, ocean drive just has so much going on, from restaurants to the each just on the thersid, the clubs outdoor gym. Miami for me is somewhere you would want to return to if you are all about seeing beautiful people and turning up. The night life was amazing, so many options of venues to chose from i actually felt spoiled for choice. In the end, we got a table at a club called the loft and storm. celebrities are usually around so you may be lucky when you go into one of the clubs in Miami Florida. South beach is one of the best places i have been to in terms of the people vibes and turning up . Definitely pricey but worth every penny spent.. must visit atleast once in your life clothes and shoes shopping is surprisingly cheap . So go do some shopping whilst you are out there.

    South Beach is always a great cheap getaway. Great night life, affordable food, close to the beach. You are bound to have a great time in Miami and possibly run into a celebrity.

    I’ve been to Miami several times, but it’s always nice to find something new to do! A group of friends, & I rode South beach part boats (southbeachpartyboat.com) to Mission island. It was 65 per person. They provided endless beer, wine, and snacks. We brought our own bottles and they let us take over the aux cord. Extremely fun experience.
    Also, in Miami, I love stopping by news cafe to get some fresh conch!

    Spent a few days in South Beach over a holiday weekend and it was incredibly fun.
    There’s so much to do along Ocean Dr and the places that I loved the most were the drinks at Wet Willies and the massive Chicken and Waffle at Big Pink.
    The World Erotic Art Museum was an interesting experience.
    Brunch at FL Cafe has bottomless mimosas which will sneak up on you quickly.
    Monday Reggae night a Purdy Lounge was a great experience to party Miami style without the large Miami crowds.
    The drinks, food, and people on Calle Ocho around Miximo Gomez Park is a definite must experience.

    South beach is one of my favorites. Beautiful beaches and people. There is also plenty to do in walking distance if you get a place near the beach. The nightlife is awesome. I also enjoyed talking to locals and hearing how much they enjoyed living there

    I went to Miami for 2 weeks when I was 19. Yes I know it wasn’t the smartest age to go because you have to be 21 in the States before you can drink or go out clubbing. I had an amazing time nonetheless!
    I stayed in the luxurious Setai Hotel on the famous South Beach and it was soo relaxing. Every day I would sit out on the private bit of beach owned by the hotel, soak up the sun and cool myself in the sea when I got too hot. I went in August which is the hottest month of the year so it was amazingly SCORCHING (I love hot temperatures) but, being Florida, the weather was subject to storms and hurricanes. I experienced a mild one while out there. Winds of 80mph and cloudy grey skies, I dare smyself to go outside during this time which was a bad idea, I think my hair was ripped out lol.

    There was so much to do while out there. I ventured out alone most days, going for long walks along the beach which I found myself wishing for a bae to be there with me especially during the sunset.

    If you go to Miami make sure you indulge in the restaurants and cafes out there. The food is amazing but quite pricey as there are loads of tourists in Miami. You will also probably need a car as I couldn’t get as much ground covered as I wanted to!

    Miami is another one I have to visit AGAIN and enjoy all the possibilities a lot better
