MIAMI - THE CITY NEVER SLEEPS
 
(2012 - Winter/Spring Issue)

Writer: SUSAN B. BARNES



Glamour, high fashion and bright lights at the hippest clubs go hand in hand with miles of white sand beaches, crystal blue waters and all the adventure you could hope for when vacationing in Florida.

Where is this magical land? Miami, of course! Hop a flight from Canada, and when the wheels touch down in Miami, the fun begins.

All in a Day’s Play

Spike it during a volleyball game on Miami Beach, take a spin around Biscayne Bay on a Jet Ski, or try for a hole-in-one on one of the area’s top golf courses. View the latest art exhibit at the Frost Art Museum, admire nature’s art in the form of delicate orchids at Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden, or shop for your favourite designers’ latest styles at their boutiques in Bal Harbour.

Loads of festivities take place year-round in Miami, so besure to check the city’s calendar of events prior to your visit to take advantage of what’s happening during your stay!

When the sun sets in Miami, dine at the best table in the hottest restaurant, dance the night away to live salsa music, take in the ballet, go on a moonlight garden tour at the Vizcaya Museum and Gardens, or simply spread out a blanket and sit under the dazzling stars to reflect on the day.

Family Outings

If your kids are joining you on your trip, there are plenty of family-friendly venues in Miami. There are always the miles upon miles of beaches along Florida’s southeast coast, perfect for frolicking in the surf or building sandcastles. Take a trip on board an airboat gliding across Everglades National Park; be sure to keep an eye out for alligators. For tamer wildlife, visit Zoo Miami or watch the dolphins flip out at the Miami Seaquarium. And when you’re ready to take a plunge, don your mask and snorkel and sneak a glimpse into the underwater world in Biscayne National Park, the only living tropical reef within the continental U.S.

Call it a Night

After such fun-filled days, it’s time to rest up for the next. Complement your time in Miami with a stay at one of the city’s storied hotels—the Biltmore. Or, make reservations at the art deco Avalon Hotel on Ocean Drive, or the secluded Standard Spa, Miami Beach. As soon as you lay your head on the pillow, you’ll begin to dream of how you’ll spend your next day in this vibrant city.
