The sun felt really good on my face as I left the plane, escaping the New England winter. Miami really is a the perfect winter getaway for those of us who don’t enjoy the cold. Below are three things that will help you book your first stay in Miami. Be on the look out for my favorite sites to come out soon.
- It may be cheaper to fly into Fort Lauderdale/ Hollyowood. This airport is only about a 30 minute drive from Miami. Besides if you rent a car, you can go see the Everglades (which I highly recommend). Parking is also reasonable (especially is you are from Boston). Click here to find a spot.
- Miami Beach and Miami are not technically the same thing. When booking a hotel, hostel or Airbnb, book in the South Beach area South Beach is the most popular part of Miami Beach.
- Clubs and bars may have special promotions via social media or may want you to sign yourself onto the guest list. Be sure to check these before going out. The 10 best clubs can be found here and keep in mind…. these clubs can be open until 5 am. So depending on where you are from, you may need to take a nap beforehand (like my friend and I did)
