Miami or Your-ami?

If you haven’t been to Miami recently it may be time for a visit. South Beach is endless sunshine and big city accessibility rolled into one spectacularly glamorous package. Getting to Miami from NC couldn’t be easier with daily nonstop flights from Greensboro, RDU and Charlotte. In just two hours you can be tapping your feet to Latin music and enjoying a mojito while sitting by the pool. If you are looking for a quick weekend getaway without the time and expense of the Caribbean- Miami is for you!

If you are only there for the weekend location is key. Our favorite hotels in South Beach are right on Collins Avenue and they both have beautiful pools, easy beach access and most importantly, quiet comfortable rooms that allow you to drown out all the sounds of the city once you are ready to sleep. You can’t go wrong with the gorgeous Ritz Carlton South Beach (view from a beach front balcony room above). The Lowes South Beach is undergoing major renovations this summer, if you don’t mind potential construction noise during the day time, they are offering amazing summer room rates.

And there are plenty of noises to drown out. The nightlife in South Beach is legendary. There is endless entertainment in this city that never sleeps. For current events and activities, check out the Miami Convention and Visitors Bureau’s website. A Miami institution, Joe’s Stone Crabs is a must do for any trip to South Beach. The food is amazing, but be prepared to wait- they don’t take reservations!
