“Live Music, Restaurant Row”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

A variety of restaurants are available to chose from for the most pickiest eaters. The outside dining is nice that overlooks the water. Live music is inside the shopping plaza and also outside for those who are walking by and dining outside. Shopping is located throughout the area for all price points.

“Beautiful skyline”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

Downtown Miami is full of nice towers. At night the towers are lightened with beautiful colors and designs. The skyline is amazing, specially from the sea. It is ranked 3rd in the US after the skyline of New york and Chicago.

“Ladies Getaway- Miami Style”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013

The Miami Lifestyle is purely distinctive. So much to do, so little time, however you can squeeze quite a bit in for a weekend getaway.

A prime location for people watching is the Mary Brickell Village area, parallel to the thriving Biscayne Blvd, Brickell offers trendy and chic array of fantastic restaurants with outdoor café seating, designer shopping, and cool bars, which becomes a ritzy spectacle at night, pulsating with the rhythm of culture and hard driving music. A Refreshing alternative to the overcrowded and overrated street clogged South Beach, Ocean Drive.

However Ocean Drive was another destination for a quick visit to the beach, which is topless by the way. The famed boulevard is lined with a multitude of art deco hotels fronted with hip eateries, such as the News Café, which was a frequent haunt of Versace and a bevy of top models. A return to Collins Ave on South Beach in the evening is the hot spot for dancing the night away to the sizzling and pulsating sounds of DJ’s imported from around the world. Almost all the night clubs, including LIV and the Cameo Club open until the wee hours of the morning, with most of the patrons drifting to a few local cafes open for early breakfast.

An awesome place that combines, entertainment, shopping and restaurants are Bayside Market, located on Biscayne Blvd. next to the marina at the Miami Port docks. This is a popular stop for cruise guests, as well as local visitors. Also not too far from the Fortune House Hotel is the wondrous Miami Seaquarium and ideal place to observe the exhibits and enjoy animal encounters with a multitude of sea animals including dolphins, killer whales and seals.
