M.I.A.M.I

Just like Will Smith said on his song, we finally went there last weekend. It was a great experience but a couple of nights is good enough. Water was nice and people are friendly although most of them in South Beach are tourists.

We stayed at this Design Hotels owned by Jonathan Marr called Town House. Very white color building and very white everywhere, location was right next to the giant SETAI building and a couple blocks away from the Delano.





We got to check out all the hotels and like the Shore Club better than the Delano. Raleigh was also nice. Something about the hotels, We feel its a little to tacky when you see bunc of toursits and 'wannabe' hanging out all over the places.



The first night, we had dinner at the FAB place (at least from the city search) say so hehe .. called 'fish at the avalon' okay food, we thought that it is a tourist trap but it was a nice experience just to hang out outside by the ocean drive.



We didn't do much the first night since we don't really want to waste the next day. After had a really good breakfast in our hotel, we decided to hang out on the beach that morning, too bad it was a little to windy so we walked around washington and collins avenue when all the stores were open and finally had a FAB. lunch at this local hang out cuban Restaurant called P&S, delicious and affordable.
At around 1P, the sun was totally out and the wind died down a bit so it was the right time to be by the water so yes we did it for almost 2 hours and got a nice tan.



Later that day after a quick nap, we did the collins strip after checking our the roof top at our hotel with the free drinks that they provided, first stop was the shore club-delano and ended up had dinner at Social located inside the Sagamore hotel, they served delicous tapas. The meal was SUPER affordable... :-)







We did check out the TWIST gay club afterwards on washington avenue to end the night which we thought was just okay.

We checked out a little early the next day and headed out to Fort Laudardale to check out the city. Went to this little town called ... and drove around the downtown area. Didn't do much there since we planned to go to the outlet just outside the city. Got some stuff of course after got a little lost and finally went to the airport.

It was such a great experience from the lively South Beach to the not so busy Fort Laudardale, definitely Florida has much things to offer.

Looks like you had a good time. Was wondering how many people had experiences like the one below at South Beach restaurants:
