WELCOME TO MIAMIIIII… *Sorry it had to be done! Last month I headed to Miami for four days of fun with Thomas Cook Airlines and some wonderful blogging babes; Amy, Jen & Sabina. We split our stay up and spent two nights in Coral Gables and two nights on South Beach, I have a post going live later this week where I’ll be sharing a tonne of hotel snaps and some more insight on our stays at each place.
I’ve been SO excited to share this post/vlog with you all and I hope it really captures the ‘real’ Miami. I have to say, as much as I fell in love with Miami, it was probably the weirdest place I’ve ever been to, it was so man made and tailored to the rich, also a lot of the art deco movement still stands so it genuinely feels like you’ve stepped back in time. Like I said I loved it all the same, it was the perfect place to relax, party and soak up some cultue all in one!
I’m thinking of putting together a guide on things to do in Miami as there was so much to do I honestly believe there is something there for everyone whether you’re looking for a cultured trip or just heading there to party – we picked up some awesome tips on places to go so stay tuned for that!
My favourite place was Wynwood as it was just so incredibly beautiful, if you’re planning to visit Miami I would say it’s the one place I 100% recommend you visit (like, you’re not allowed to leave Miami until you’ve been, K!). The neighborhood was packed with graffiti, murals and street art, the artists were super talented and some of the pieces were led by political and current movements, whilst others were simply fun!
Us bloggers had an absolute field day as it was such a beautiful place to snap outfit pictures, we were so lucky as we were bless with incredibly weather that day too! If you do visit, I’d highly recommend booking a tour with… as they will walk you around and talk you through some of the pieces, it was super insightful and we picked up things that we would never have known on our own.
On that note, I’m going to let the pictures do the talking (sorry, it is a little picture heavy - if you make it to the end then GO YOU!), enjoy…
Phewwwwwww, there we have it my Miami post from my #12Countries12Months project - if you made it this far then you deserve a pat on the back! I really hope you enjoyed this post and found it useful if you're thinking of visiting, like I said I'll put together a post on the top things to do in Miami so I can talk in length about each place we visited so you can get a feel if it's for you or not!
