Miami Beach: The Seaside Getaway

The island city of Miami Beach is famous for being wonderfully good looking both sides of the surf but go there this year and find out why it could be the best beach on the coast for you.  Connected to mainland Miami by bridges Miami Beach is easily accessible from Miami International Airport.  The travel can be so easy that it is tempting to make the trip in a weekend but to do so would be selling Miami Beach short, you will need a few more days to soak up all the Latin food, pleasant nights and summer sun.  Here are a few tips for planning your next vacation to Miami Beach:

World Class Accommodations in Miami Beach

Five Star accommodations line shoulder to shoulder down Ocean Drive which means plenty of options when making reservations.  ADA accessible, family friendly, or just to take a dip after a pool cleaning in a local pool with a beautiful view, any of your requests will easily be met, which means no settling for just a clean room. 

Within Range of Key West

Should the mood strike you to leave the city Key West is only 4 hours by car or tour bus and even hosts is an own airport.  The archipelago skates lightly out in the Gulf of Mexico connected by bridges.  Where the road ends is the southernmost point of the contiguous United States, Key West.  On the way back don’t pass up Key Largo without taking a look at some of the houses built right on top of the lagoon.

High – Class Culture

Tee off at either Miami Beach Golf Club or Normandy Shores Golf Club, both have a coastal view from the links.  If you are planning on making Miami Beach a winter getaway, The Bass contemporary art museum will be opening October 8th, 2017.  The Wolfsonian is an art museum showcasing approximately 180,000 everyday objects from 1850 until the post-WWII era.  Books, textiles, furniture, and paintings mark the ages in the way an antique store might dress up for a fancy date.

World Class Cuisine

Miami has known for not only Latin and Cuban cuisine but the scene has a competitive restaurant culture which means celebrity chefs are always looking to prove themselves on the waterfront.  When chefs compete you win and often new restaurants are serving fusion food in Miami before other states have even heard of the dishes you could be dining on.  Whether it’s reserving a sunset table at Smith & Wollensky for top quality surf and turf, retreating from North Beach to 27 Restaurant nestled in with the hotels on Ocean Drive for designer cocktails and kimchi or venturing to the mainland to Little New Haven for a Cuban, finding a good restaurant will only be as hard as finding sand on the beach.

Miami Beach is not green to tourism, with experience comes professional amenities that serve as a perfect destination for seniors. The city welcomes visitors of any age, the motto of the Parks and Recreation Department is “Be active, be social, be forever young.” and to prove it the city is constantly running fitness and club activities that are welcome to online registration.  For an up- to-date list of programs available call 303-673-7730.
