Where to Stay:

For an ultramodern boutique stay in downtown Miami, check out the Catalina Hotel & Beach Club

You’ll never have to leave the property with multiple restaurants and bars, pool & seaside catering, boutique shops, fitness centers, media lounges, it’s own nightclub, and more! 

What to Eat:

Jumpstart your morning with coffee freshly brewed from David’s Cafecito Cafe.

Serving authentic Cuban coffee and cuisine, their homebrews have been described as “liquid crack” from Miami locals, making David’s an extremely popular dining destination. 

Sip cocktails and have Asian style tapas with majestic city views at Sugar, Miami’s exclusive rooftop lounge. 

This secret garden holds a strict “nighttime attire” dress code and fills up pretty quickly - make sure to reserve a table in advance!

Dine like celebrities in the Surf Club Restaurant’s relaxed vintage 1950’s glamour. 

Award winning chef Thomas Keller serves nostalgic American cuisine with an inventive twist. 

This high-end restaurant welcomes walk-ins, but at a first come first serve basis - and has very limited seating. 

Things to Do:

You can’t visit Miami without visiting at least one beautiful beach. 

South Beach, Miami’s most popular beach, is infamous for its party-lifestyle and celebrity sightings. 

The location is trendy, fun-loving and always has something going on - and watch out for the people on roller skates!

If you love nature, visit Everglades National Park and explore the two million acres of wetland ecosystems spanning Florida’s coast. 

You’re guaranteed to see at least one dozen alligators in their natural habitat, as well as hundreds of bird species and even manatees! 

Take a walk through Miami’s historical Art Deco District, an area most known for its stunning architecture. 

Observe the area’s 800+ pastel stucco buildings within one square mile and experience hundreds of unique photo opportunities around each corner!
