Miami Beach

Over Memorial Day we headed down to Miami to pretty much relax, drink cocktails and breathe in the ocean. We succeeded. We've been to Miami quite a few times and while I enjoy South Beach, it's not really my cup of tea. Miami Beach was the perfect spot because it is near everything but almost feels secluded and we were only a few hotels up from the iconic Eden Roc and Fountainebleau.

We stayed at the Grand Miami Beach and I cannot say enough great things about this hotel. The service was impeccable, the cocktails were delicious and just strong enough and the view, oh the view. They have three pools, two that are a complete oasis surrounded by palm trees and an adult only rooftop pool that has a view of both the ocean and the bay!The only downside I can think of to this hotel would probably be the carpets in the hallway. They really do need a serious deep clean but with beach feet and light carpet, sometimes that happens. 

I'll just let our photos do the talking, we pretty much stayed in our hotel with a few detours to Coral Gables and my absolute favorite beach in the country, Key Biscayne.  I will be writing a post specifically about each, but wanted to throw a few pics in for the meantime. The Venetian Pool in Coral Gables was awesome. Can't say enough things about it, especially the caves! 

And my new favorite drink is the Caipirinha, oh my gosh!!! So delish

Not shown, my purple and blistered skin from inadvertently using a much lower sunscreen than I realized. Ouch.
