"The Best of Miami & Miami Beach" Top 5 Page for this destination Miami Beach by vanessadb

Miami Beach Travel Guide: 1,039 reviews and 2,100 photos

Miami is where I live. I lived in the Art Deco District of South Beach when I was young and single, and now live in a more family oriented area with my husband and 2 year old daughter. So this page really involves all of the Miami area. You'll find tips about how to enjoy this city as a free single person wanting to have fun, but also tips about what to do when you're here as a parent with your kids.

Living in Miami is a great experience as it has loads to offer: Summer pretty much all year long, the beach and the ocean whenever you're in the mood, loads of daytime outdoor activities, and a happening varied nightlife,.

So here you will find my favorite places and spots in Miami. Mind you, these are a selection of what is worth doing and seeing in Miami in my humble opinion, and depending on your interests you might not agree. Hope you enjoy them though and find my tips useful. And if you have any questions don't hesitate to send me an email =)

    Great Pages Vanessa, Really good meaningful tips, not like some of the other rubbish people put on to fill their pages. Off to Miami next week and am taking some good advice from your page.

    Great pages on Miami Beach. I was there as a kid with family and have fond memories visiting the Seaquarium, Parrot Jungle, etc.

    I 'm glad you pointed out the absurdity of tourists' obsession with former Versace villa. Having worked with the family professionally, it's always sad to see photos taken of the stairs where I saw Mr.Versace's blood within 2 hours of his murder.
