Sunday Reading – The Miami Chronicles
It’s been a month since I left the sunshine, the beaches and the many beautiful people behind in Miami. With so many good memories and plenty to write about, here are the posts from my week in Miami.
The first leg of the Miami trip was the epic electronic dance music festival, Ultra Music Festival. Considered to be THE premier dance festival in the world, I knew I had to get to this festival at least once in my life. Click here to read the story.
I love driving and I love road trips even more so. The Overseas Highway is something that was very high on my bucket list. The only thing I didn’t like about ticking this one off, is that my thirst to explore Cuba is now at a point I can’t ignore it. Click here to read the story.
With Ultra Music Festival over, we changed gears and became tourists. Going on a tour to see the amazing Everglades National Park on the only way you can… An airboat. Afterwards, a tour of a gator park gave me the opportunity to hold a baby alligator in my hands. Click here to read the story.
On a beautiful sunny afternoon, we jumped aboard the Island Queen and cruised around Biscayne Bay. Seeing how people with too much money to know what to do with live when they call Miami home. Click here to read the story.
Celebrating a friend’s birthday, we had the opportunity to spend the day at the amazing SoHo Beach House in Miami Beach. A membership only club that is well a truly out of reach for this backpacker. Click here to read the story.
Ocean Drive is no doubt the most iconic part of Miami. The art deco buildings running along the famous South Beach, with alfresco dining in beautiful weather all year round and plenty of people watching make this an amazing place to visit. Click here to read the story.
The colourful Wynwood Arts District is a place that was decaying over time to be left to developers to make yet more concrete apartment towers, but this area of Miami has a new purpose, to display amazing collections of street art. Click here to read the story.
Over the week in Miami, I saw more than just one side to the city. A place that I am so happy that I have experienced Miami to the fullest that I could in the time that I had. I may just have to go back one day.
