Welcome to Miami. Bienvenidos a Miami!
Where bikinis are year round and Spanish is not optional . Miami, there is no place like you.
Rosetta : an Italian bakery
1666 Collins Ave, Miami Beach, FL 33139
This quaint little spot serves Italian treats and as a coffee addict (& former Miami resident) , the finest cappuccino on the block.
If you don’t manage to photograph the essence of Miami with palm trees, you didn’t try hard enough! They may not be West Coast tall but they are abundant and I’m sure they also speak Spanish.
Wynwood Walls , 2520 NW 2nd Ave, Miami, FL 33127
Entering Miami’s art district and just a 15 min drive from Miami Beach you’ll find a few miles worth of wall art. Wynwood didn’t limit themselves to walls though, at every step you take on the property a message from the wise (or Drake) will be at your feet.
Plant The Future : 2511 NW 2nd Ave, Miami, FL 33127
Wynwood has Instagram worthy spots… galore! My favorite by far is in a chic plant store adjacent to the Wynwood entrance. Ordering you not to leave the premises without checking it out!
Tip: Rasta man in the white truck sells fresh coconuts for $4
The museum at the end of the Wyndwood walking path displays work from local artists. Through the walk you’ll find walk- in galleries showcasing contemporary art. You’ll know when you reached the end of the walls when you reach the Bougainvillea tree.
After Bayside, the PAMM is a must-do on Biscayne Blvd for Miami first timers. The contemporary art museum has many interactive art displays and installations.
Whats a trip to the 305 without a walk through ocean drive? Not a succesful trip! At every corner you’ll find a sweet pastel colored corner decorated by palm trees and pushy South American servers inviting you inside to an over-priced but delicious Latin restaurant. (Lario’s on the beach is my personal fav)
Kimpton EPIC Hotel, 16th Floor270 Biscayne Boulevard WayMiami, FL
South Pointe Park
We checked this placeout after being told that it’s the most beautiful sunset you’ll catch in Miami. Well, they weren’t kidding. Walkers, skaters, families and couple is what you’ll find here. Read a book, swing your legs from the bridge whilst watching the waves or even catch a game of foot volley. You won’t regret this!
Azucar Ice Cream Company
Guanabana & guava sauce ice cream is another route to my heart. If you decide to make your way to Little Havana, stop by the Celia Cruz inspired ice cream shop for the sweetest picture op!
