There is no season I prefer over Summer. You can take the crisp of the Fall leaves. You can have your fresh fallen snow. Give me the beam of the sun’s rays, the warmth of the ocean and crash of the waves.
My daughter and I both share a love for the ocean. We can wade in the water, jump over waves and watch tiny fish swim by our feet for hours on end. The Summer plans always involve beach trips.
Fun Fact: I keep beach mats and chairs in the trunk of my car all year round.
We recently spent a few of our summer days on South Beach. Miami has always been a city that we love to visit. The energy, heat and the food have always been the perfect mixture for a great vacation. Before we had our daughter we vacationed there but it looked a little different, slightly. We were tempted to stop into a club on Lincoln Road pre daughter but now we really don’t even think of a club or even miss it. A nice dinner on the busy beachfront Collins Ave is really all we need for our family entertainment now. There are restaurants where live bands play exciting and lively music so we really don’t feel as though we are missing out. In reality, we go Miami for the beach but there really is a ton to do in the city of Miami. There are museums, gardens and historic neighborhoods (mainly centering on the heritage of those who come from Cuba and Haiti and make up a majority of the city) all within your reach.
Here’s a look at our recent visit to South Beach:
Miami at night is, even more, energy filled than Maimi in the daytime. The lights are everywhere and mixed with the clear skies and palms is simply beautiful.

Are there any spots in Miami that we should visit next time around?
