Coral Gables’ Miracle Mile, revisited. For shopping, restaurants, coffee houses. Miller ale house, Ben and jerry’s, ramen.
Aventura mall (the pet detective mall). Big mall. Hi end food court ($15 price point vs $8 compared to regular). Stuff like Lobster Roll, Poke 305, Mediterranean, Brick Oven Pizza and Chinese. As well as old standbys such as Shake Shack and HaagenDaz.
Little Havana, revisited. Versailles Cuban Bakery. Get the Cafe con Leche at the window. It’s reason all by itself to go there. Get a chicken empanadas, too, if your hungry. Tastes better than the beef.
Dolphin Mall, Ridiculously busy. But LOTS of tables w outlets.
Shops at merrick park. Hoity toity. Open air. No food court. Not a lot of places to get snacks. Lounge seating outdoors. Expensive looking bistros. But otherwise, very relaxing atmosphere. Nice big crate and barrel.
Lincoln Road mall revisited in south beach. Think Santa Monica shopping.
Again, if you want to see the beautiful people, Miami’s South Beach is where to go. This weekend had Volleyball for Models, so more beautiful than normal.
Right in front of the Lummus Park where they have bathrooms and shower facilities. The restaurants are a little pricey in front of the Art Deco Hotels on Ocean Dr. Around $20-$50/person price point. But you can find a early bird steak special for $10.
There is an ESPN Studios presence there as well.
Parking is affordable, but never free.
Shepherd Artisan Coffee with a Affogato, $5.
North Miami, Broward county just has the normal stuff in Florida. Drive down US-1 to see beach towns. Broward County library, yes that is a homeless tent town.
