They say the third time’s a charm – and it was so true of my third visit to Miami! Being a bit older and perhaps wiser (?), I was sure to wear plenty of sunscreen and keep hydrated this time around, as well as take in as many sights as possible which meant many early mornings and late nights to get the most out of my 3 day vacation.
Below are a few of my favourite highlights.
^^Maya Hayuk mural at Wynwood Walls – a must see. So vibrant and happy. I fell in love with it!^^
^^Hit up Shake Shack for the first time and OMGGG it was good. The crinkle fries alone are worth a trip. ^^^^On one of the sunniest days, we met up with a friend who invited us for poolside lounging at the Thompson Hotel. It was so nice to just lay around and relax on the comfy loungers, and the service here was amazing. Definitely hit this spot if you want to feel a little pampered on your vacation.^^^^My favourite white shirt from Anthropologie, by Cloth & Stone – It’s the comfiest, softest shirt I own and it goes perfectly with shorts or jeans, or can be worn as a cover up, poolside. ^^
^^Broken Shaker was an adorable little patio bar at Freehand Hostel. Great place to day drink and lounge by the pool for a low key time. ^^^^2 ft. long, thin crust pizza from Pizza Bar, I will miss you most of all… ;(^^
And no, I was not there for the Ultra Music festival, but that was happening over the weekend, as well as Miami’s Centennial party featuring Barry Gibb from the Bee Gees, which we randomly stumbled upon while taking a night walk along the beach. For a city with a big nightlife on a normal night, this was a pretty eventful time to head into South Beach with the extra crowds in town. All that, plus running into a few friends along the way made this a trip to remember!
Have you been to Miami before? Any tips for future visits? I’d love to hear your recommendations!
