I really do enjoy sharing the spirit of Miami with my readers and keeping you updated with events and activities that this coastal city has to offer.

Whenever traveling to a city there are always so many interesting neighborhood’s to explore. Today I am going share with you some cool and sometimes overlooked neighborhoods to check out this weekend!

Mid Beach
This neighborhood is filled with some of the most iconic hotels and nightlife in Miami. The Miami Beach Editionmay be his hottest project around. The hotel captures the essence of the city, a hypnotic mix of glamour and play, from the palm-filled lobby diffused with candlelight, to the indoor bowling alley and ice skating rink.

Only a few blocks away, you will find the fabulous Thompson Miami, housed in a restored Art Deco tower, makes poolside lounging an all-day affair with its bright mix of yellow-and-white striped cabanas, Oceanside cocktails, and young spitited crowd.

Let’s not forget the iconic Fontainebleau, which recently added two more hotel towers plus a Vegas-worthy pool area as part of a $1 billion renovation. Hanging by the pool where famous movie scenes have been filmed and then you can dance the night away at Liv.

As you can see Mid Beach is epicenter of luxurious resorts so when you need a get away you know where to escape!

In Downtown we have the wonderful landmark the Pérez Art Museum. Hanging tropical gardens are strung from the canopies and the glass covered modernist building brings in natural light to show off a grand selection of contemporary works of Latin American art. In the new Museum Park, this area will only become even more vibrant when Patricia and Phillip Frost Museum of Science opens in 2016.

A downtown revitalization project in the works promises a cultural arts center, urban-chic dwellings and lofts, and an assortment of hip boutiques, eateries, and bars, all to bring downtown back to a life it never really had.
