International mall is nice.

My favorite,(well, closest to my home) is The Falls just a few minutes south of Dadeland.

Flamingo Gardens is very nice. Also nice(er) and well worth a trip and closer is Fairchild Tropical Gardens.

A great restaurant near your location is The Red Fish grill, in Matheson Hammock, on the edge of Biscayne Bay. You can see Coconut Grove( another must do), Miami Beach and downtown Miami. Go in the evening. If you are here in the winter , eat outside under the coconut palms.

Are vinyl records worth $?

Thanks for the Info donato,

About Vinyl $, it depends about Condition and rarety.

normal records from 70 are here in Europe between €2,50(carboot sale) and 10,00(specialist shop)

from 60 are between €2,50(carboot) 20.00(shop)

some rare one's can go to a few hundred Quit.

I myself collect for the music it self, some other collectors for the rarety in labels.

But the music on it is still the same.

I second the recommendation to The Falls Mall, about A 5-10 minute drive south on US1, if you are coming during the holidays you can see it all decorated, probably the prettiest mall in Miami IMO.

Mall of the Americas is a waste of time if you go to Dadeland Mall.

Dolphin Mall is ok, it has a mix of Outlet Stores and regular priced stores, instead I would suggest Sawgrass Mills Mall. About 20 minutes north of Dolphin Mall. Sawgrass is the largest Outlet Mall probably in the state of Florida.

As far as vintage stuff, South Beach may be a place you may want to walk around, there are many vintage shops there.

Other must do's Everglades National Park, spend a day out there catch an airboat ride, see the alligators, etc. Viscaya, Coconut Grove just walk around there and have a bit to eat.

Since you are staying in Dadeland, you could have dinner at a few different places depending on what you want. There's Shorty's BBQ, next to Dadeland Station South. Red Fish Grill for a romantic dinner on the water. Samari a hibatchi style restaurant across the street from The Falls mall (FYI always a wait, so have a drink at the bar). Flanigans 5 minutes south on US! from Dadeland, low key bar style seafood restaurant. For breakfast Wagons West just south of Dadeland or Deli Lane (serves Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner) just north of Dadeland. Panera Bread across from Dadeland mall has great pastries, sandwiches, pizza, soups, etc. In Dadeland Mall there's a Cheesecake Factory that you should visit at least one time (FYI the portions are huge). At the Dadeland North Station (where Target, Best Buy, etc are) is Lan Pan Asian a good place to get some sushi.

If you are looking for shoes there's a DSW (Designer Shoe Warehouse) across US1 from Dadeland Mall. They sell all kinds of shoes, knock offs to designer shoes.
