Miami | The city and the beaches

After the fun but exhausting days of the parks in Orlando, we drove to Miami, about 4 hours away.

Our greatest intention was to even give a reduced pace, rest a little (if this is possible having a child of 1 year and a half on the lap) and know the beaches and a few sights that we find more interesting, before flying home.

We stayed in a hotel near the marina in North Miami, for reasons of values, since the beachfront resort hotels in South Beach are quite expensive (resort fee, parking etc. in addition to the daily, of course), which was not a big problem, since we were with rental car and we could get around easily.

We strolled through South Beach only in the late afternoon and although the beach was half empty, the atmosphere of the area, full of bars and restaurants was great. You could even feel a kind of glamorous atmosphere of walking there, full of beautiful people, hype, imported cars and such.

But they even had families with kids in the restaurants we passed by, proving that they’re not just singles or childless people walking around.

The next day was the beach day. It dawned with a beautiful sun and we decided to go to North Beach, which was closer to the hotel. The sea was a bit revolting, but clear, thick sand (which doesn’t stick everything) and resulted in an unforgettable day (for various reasons, but it was Alice’s first day at the beach).

The other day, we also went for a walk through downtown Miami and Little Havana (Cuban area of Miami) since the day was rainy. And the next day, we caught another beach afternoon at Craydon Park on the way back from our tour in Key Biscayne.

Key Biscayne is an island south of Miami that is reportedly home to a large millionaire population and famous home. We, of course, went for a walk there, going that the magic dust of wealth does not catch on us …. Hehehe.

There we find many mansions, lots of organization / cleaning, golf courses and almost only luxury cars.  

Summary: Miami is a very friendly city, but what I point out are the natural beauties. The beaches are one of those that deserve several visits… Hehehe
