Bienvenido a Miami

17Apr11

Sun, beach, palm trees, parties. A place to see and be seen. That’s what generally comes to mind when you think of Miami.

Hotel Delano is a Miami favorite. It’s impressive lobby evokes stylish trendiness and the outdoor pool area definitely has a wow-factor and is a great place for a drink in the evening. Owned by Morgans Hotel Group, one can see the similar charm the Delano has to the Mondrian Hotels, the Hudson in New York and Sanderson in London – also in the Group.

Ocean Drive is extremely touristy but there are great views from the outdoor cafes and restaurants onto the beach. The food is generally not gourmet cuisine but it is a fun people-watching spot.

For daytime scene-y venues, try Nikki Beach. The global phenomenon is also located in Saint-Tropez, Saint Barths, Marbella, Cabo San Lucas, Marrakech, Koh Samui, Cabarete, Dominican Republic and Las Vegas.

After all the flashiness of Miami, Fort Lauderdale is a welcome respite. Depending on your preference, this is where you can really feel like you’re on vacation. Fort Lauderdale has beautiful beaches to just bask in the sun on, and that quaint village-esque vibe that makes you feel like you’re far away from wherever you’re supposed to be.

A great place to go in Fort Lauderdale is the Sawgrass Mills outlet in Sunrise, a short drive from Fort Lauderdale. With tons of brands and the weak dollar, this is a European tourists dream!
