A Bustling Day in Miami Beach Florida

August 7, 2009

Miami Beach

Miami Beach has so much to offer but unfortunately you can’t experience everything in one day. So for this itinerary we are going to spend a little time in some areas that take in Collins Avenue, Lincoln Road & Washington Avenue.

A friend who was planning on flying into Miami Florida asked me to set up an itinerary for her and her partner for the Miami Beach area. She wanted to experience something a little different that included the bustling atmosphere but at the same time keeping the day simple… This was to be their first day in Miami and they wanted impact and an impression that would last a life time…

Miami Beach is all about great beaches and pools, adventures, sunbathing beauties, rollerblading the walkways and some incredible eateries and we try to include some different places to visit and we hope you enjoy our sunrise to sunset day and beyond in Miami Beach Florida.

Miami Beach SunriseWatching the sunrise over Miami Beach is incredible - the gorgeous sun on the water is romantic and very spectacular. The idea here is to find a comfortable seat, sit back and relax and let the sun rise in front of you. The glistening water, the birds singing as their first day in Miami begins is a very spectacular moment.

Visit Espanola Way - if you enjoy beauty, if you enjoy the arts then it’s time to visit the incredible arts and crafts exhibits on Sundays on Espanola Way - this is where you will find some incredible unique works that tourists and the locals really enjoy.

Shopping in Miami Beach - now this is an exciting adventure for all tourists who want to experience something a little different. The shops in Lincoln Road are one of the city’s trademarks. Lincoln Road Mall Lincoln Road bustles with music especially on a Sunday.

Some of these stores you won’t find anywhere else in Florida.

Enjoy lunchtime in Miami Beach. With some incredible restaurants and lunch time venues available the cuisine choices are amazing.
