Just a short jet set from Toronto, Miami is the perfect escape for some sunshine when winter is dragging on. Sunshine, beach, delicious food and the best nightlife, Miami has it all. Fromlounging on the beach to dancing into the morning, there is something for everyone to enjoy. We spent 5 fabulous days in Miami and can't wait to go back. I've rounded up our 10 favourite things that we enjoyed in Miami so you can make sure to add them to your list.
Wynwood Walls - It kind of reminded me of Graffiti Alley in Toronto but on a grander scale. Enjoy street art at it's finest. It's a fun free activity!
Grab a baked good and coffee at Zach The Baker. We came here 3 times during our 5 day stay. We loved everything we tried, especially the hazelnut croissant. Located in Wynwood, it's a great place to stop to refuel while walking around the Wynwood area.
Lincoln Road - If you enjoy shopping or people watching this is great place to spend a couple of hours.
Take a walk on Ocean Drive - This is SUCH an iconic place. Take a stroll, people watch, grab a drink and dance the night away.
Española Way - This unique European style enclave is tucked between Pennsylvania Avenue and Washington Avenue. Lots of delicious restaurants line the road and is a great spot during the day and at night.
Beach Day - There are so many beautiful spots to enjoy the Beach. Surfside, Nikki Beach and South Beach are all good options.
Watch the Sunrise - We enjoyed the most beautiful sunrise at South Beach. The best part is how peaceful it is, plus it's free!
Dinner at Gianni's AKA The Versace Mansion - You have to go at least once. Make a reservation, it can get busy. It can be a bit pricey so if you don't want to spend a ton of money, I suggest going for lunch, with a prix fix menu of $34 which includes an appetizer, entree and dessert.
The Design District - If you enjoy people watching, art, architecture and fashion then you will definitely enjoy this area. Located just a few blocks North of Wynwood.
A Rooftop Bar - There are ton of great rooftop bars in the city, so make sure to check out at least one of them. The Esme Hotel Rooftop, HighBar, Mila, Serena Rooftop and Watr at the 1 Rooftop are all good options.
