Happy Monday! Today I’m sharing a fun city guide for my hometown of Miami, Fl. Whether you’re a local or visiting the sunny city for a vacation, here are a few of my favorite spots to hit up on your weekend or weeknight out. When it comes to shopping, I love heading to Merrick Park to shop at stores like Madewell for all of my denim needs and wardrobe basics. Then I head to L’Occitan to stock up on luscious beauty products and deliciously scented home candles. (Disclaimer: you may never want to leave the store, it’s so pretty!) Since Merrick Park is an outdoors place, I’d recommend taking a caffeine break outside at an espresso bar or enjoying a cocktail at one of Merrick Park’s restaurant patios.
If you’re looking to do a little shopping on the bustling Miami beach, then scan the racks of Jessie Boutique. And if you want a more quite scene, stroll the streets of South Miami and shop at Ohm Boutique.
In Miami, it’s always a good idea to soak up the sunshine and warm breeze on a weekend. A great way to enjoy the weather is at a laid-back atmosphere like Fado Irish Pub in Mary Brickell Village. Mary Brickell Village is another fun area to walk around and listen to live music happening in every corner…or cure your sweet tooth at Amore Gelato. While you’re hanging out at Fado Irish Pub, get your hands on a Crabbie’s Alcoholic Ginger Beer. Drinking al fresco is uber refreshing with a Crabbie’s in hand-I personally love the Scottish Raspberry flavor. Once you’re done sipping a Crabbie’s, grab one of the pub’s famous pickle-back shots!
So, where am I hanging out and sipping’ on a Crabbie’s in the photos above? In one of my favorite cities here, Coral Gables. Regardless of how hot the weather may get here in Miami, the breeze is always fresh in Coral Gables. Not to mention the city’s historic ambiance offers such a different vibe than anywhere else in Miami, it’s one of my top places to kick back and relax whether it’s at one of the countless cafes or bars.
