Yes, I am a fan of Miami.

A weekend in South Beach is truly fun.
Do you long for the South Beach of frozen margaritas and electric neon? The South Beach of stylish new hotels like Gale, Lord Balfour, SLS South Beach and special restaurants like Yardbird, Southern Table & Bar, Khong River House, Tongue & Cheek? I like the the South Beach of yesterday with Art Deco buildings, museums and monuments?
Perhaps you simply crave …the beach. Miami can be whatever you want it to be — laid back, decked out, gay, straight, a family retreat.
In this dreamland at the southern tip of Miami Beach, you can choose your own adventure.
Very smmoth and easy, lets try Brickell Avenue, Miami and enjoy another contemporary, luxurious Conrad hotel.
Yep, indeed a good choice for travelers seeking a sanctuary in the heart of a vibrant city. The stunning 36-story tower overlooking Biscayne Bay in Downtown
Miami, is a striking façade of glass and steel that is decidedly modern, boldly conceived, and beautifully designed to create a unique sensory experience.
Local attractions are endless, just a short drive away is world-famous South Beach, Key Biscayne, and the Village of Merrick Park.
Things to do in Miami, eg. Everglades National Park.
A trip to the Everglades National Park -featuring in several James Bond movies-is sure to be a highlight of any trip to Miami.
The largest subtropical wilderness in the United States, the Park is home to a variety of rare and endangered species, including the American crocodile and the West Indian manatee. The Everglades are a UNESCO World Heritage Site, International Biosphere Reserve, and Wetland of International Importance and there are several different ways to experience this incredible ecosystem. Jet and airboat tours are available for those looking to enjoy the Everglades in style, buggy tours and hiking trips will take you further into the prairies, wetlands and sloughs, while kayaking and canoeing tours allow you to explore off the beaten track with a little fishing thrown in. For those feeling a little more adventurous and wishing to see the Everglades from the skies, there is even a float plane excursion.
Last exit Key West only 90 miles to Cuba.
