No, this blog does not pertain to the hundred and one things we all must do on a daily basis to empty our honey do lists, work lists or any other lists. This has to do with all of the fun things there are to do in South Florida, but many of us never get around to doing. Whether you live in Florida year round, visit us when it gets cold up north, or own a second home or investment property here take advantage of some of the awesome events that go on in our town.
Currently, probably to help with the summer lull and increase business, there is the Miami Spice event. One of my favorite restaurants on the list is the Setai. Not only is the outside “zen” area a wonderful place for pre-clubbing drinks (great Lychee Martini), it is a nice place to wind down and relax. During Miami Spice, which runs through September, you can get a 3- course meal for $35.
The Miami International Wine Fair , which benefits the American Red Cross, starts this weekend and runs through the 10th.
If wining and dining isn’t your thing, you can tour Vizcaya Museum and Gardens; Sundays in September are free! In the evening, you can take in a movie at University of Miami’s Bill Cosford Theatre. Want to take your children to a museum without them rolling their eyes? Check out the Dr. Seuss exhibit at the Miami Children’s Museum.
Of course this list isn’t even the tip of the iceberg and does not include the obvious activities, such as going to one of our great beaches, renting a boat, or taking in a Dolphins or Marlins game. Whatever you do, take time to enjoy the variety of activities South Florida has to offer and thank your lucky stars that you live in such a wonderful place!
