Where to Stay

Berkeley Park Hotel

Beautiful, yet and affordable is what I look for in a hotel. Situated right on the beach, the hotel also features a beautiful terrace, lush white beach chairs and umbrellas on the sand as well as a dreamy pool. Bonus points: The property is close to popular attractions like LIK Fine Art Miami, Lincoln Road and Versace Mansion.

Broken Shaker

In another great hotel, the broken shaker has been raved about by everyone, myself including! This outdoor bar is a place where all the cool cats go to, as it exudes a sense of kitschy tropical vibes with all of its quirk. Think cocktail umbrellas. Made with local fruit and liquor, the cocktails make it hard to compare!

Kiki on the River

I find myself here quite often, sampling all of the delicious Mediterranean meals. Find yourself in a Greek Taverna of your dreams with its riverside views and island inspired cuisine and aesthetic. On site is one of Miami's original fish-markets which totally completes the authentic Greek vibes of this joint. My favorite dish? The Tuna Tartare, made with delicious olives, avocado puree, cucumber and pita chips!

What to See

Wynwood Walls

Apart from the obvious sights and sounds of the beaches here in Miami, you can find yourself some of the coolest galleries around. The Wynwood Walls is a personal favorite and I always make a point of visiting. Think of it as an outside art gallery. From murals to urban graffiti, this groovy space is a collection of artistry that peaks your imagination and makes you want to take ALL the photos for your Instagram reel. It is completely free to walk around and definitely worth a walk around to see why Miami is so renowned for its selection of art!

Vizcaya Museum & Gardens

If you love a little mystery and story telling, this place is for you! With a 1920's italian vila owned by James Deering, the architecture and gardens of this magical place are incredible, and the story is the cherry on top. James Deering was famous for throwing extravagent parties, with unique guest rooms that had secret doors and wild stories (think Great Gatsby).
