If you are planning to discover Miami in a week’s period, all you have to do is to religiously respect time to pack in as much as possible. Here are some places you must visit when in Miami:
Design District: If you are an art lover, do drop by the Design District, located at the 42nd Avenue, a one-hour drive from the international airport. This area houses a significant school for design and architecture in Miami.
Bal Harbour: Located in 99th Street, Collins Avenue, and 45 minutes from the airport, it is one of the swankiest areas in Miami. It has Miami’s best shops such as Gucci, Prada, Chloe, Banana Republic and Marc Jacobs. A must-visit is the Aventura Mall at 196th Street, the biggest shopping destination and food hub in Miami. It’s a haven for foodies.
South Beach: Let your hottest and adventurous self come alive. Slip into funky sportswear and get ready to do the craziest of watersports. During seasonal festivals, you can enjoy water-skiing and play beach volleyball with local beauties.
5th Street: This pulsating street gives you a good shot at bumping into Hollywood celebs and rockstars. The gambler in you can roll out a smooth flow of money at the posh casinos. Dance your heart out in star-packed pubs.
Old Miami: The real beauty of Miami lies in the private decks along the old Miami country-houses, where culture of the 70s and 80s Miami comes alive.
So, if you actually listened attentively to the lectures of time-management that your friends gave you back home [before the trip], you should have been left with a little time more to take a stroll along Linking Road – it houses some of the world’s most expensive designer stores.
Where to stay: Sea View Hotel, Bal Harbour, where you get the best of Indian food. Days Inn South Beach, a budget hotel, which is good for a night halt.
