For many years my boyfriend has said that South beach, Miami was a lot of fun. This time around I was able to experience what he’s been talking about. We checked into the Royal Palm for a number of days, an art deco style hotel on Collins avenue and beachfront access just steps away. The first night the weather was hot, sticky and the sky was blue with pink clouds which reminded me of cotton candy, it was so beautiful! We wandered around aimlessly and stumbled upon a small and charming area called Española way and ate at a Spanish tapas bar that had live music and dancing.
After dinner, we headed back to the hotel and called it a night. The next day the sun was out and we took full advantage of it and went to the beach. We rented chairs and soaked in the sun. I couldn’t believe how warm the water was and how white the sand was, it was like a scene from a movie!
South Beach has a great nightlife, it’s party central! We walked down Ocean Drive and it was a must to stop at the iconic hotel the Clevelander to grab a couple of drinks. We continued strolling down the famous street to check out a couple other places.
Our last night we went to a restaurant called Quality Meats which serves up steaks and seafood. I had a salmon dish and my boyfriend had the filet mignon. Did I mention that they make a steak sauce from scratch right in front of you!!? Yes, it’s wonderful! I loved it so much that I ate it all. Paired with my dish, I had one of their signature cocktails that was yummy. Overall we had a a great food experience.
I wish we had more time to explore Miami, but glad I had the opportunity to check it out. We’ll be back soon! 🙂
