Have you ever thought about soaking up some sun in Miami? You are probably picturing long sandy beaches, tanned bodies, and good weather. However, over the past few years, there has been a shift in the lifestyle of those that live in this american metropolis. If you are planning on traveling to the home of the ‘Heat’, be prepared for some surprises that you may have never thought of.
Where the rich go to play:
Miami has evolved into a playground for the rich. It doesn’t take long to notice the bars and restaurants of South Beach boast outrageous prices for drinks and dinner. Aside from that, you will notice some of the fanciest sports cars in the world parked outside these establishments.
Where are all these people coming from? It seems like a magnet has been placed in Miami that only attracts the mega rich. Millionaires and billionaires from Russia, the Middle East, and South America bring their yachts to Miami to show off their fortunes. As a regular traveler, you will enjoy the scenery and imagining what it would be like to own one of these incredible boats.
Aside from all of this, Miami and South Beach, are still great places to vacation. You can still manage to find reasonably priced drinks and fun restaurants without spending a lot of money. You don’t need to go to ‘Le FontaineBleau’ to have a good time, but if you get the opportunity it is definitely worth going. Its by far the most renown hotel in Miami and has spectacular amenities including beach access, pool, 5 star restaurants, and one of the most popular night clubs in town.
If you have a flight into Miami International Airport, have now worries. Transportation from the airport to South Beach is easy. Many hotels have shuttles that make pickups at the arrivals gate. Also, if you are on a budget, it is wise to take the express South Beach city bus. It picks up travelers at the airport terminal and will get you to your destination at a fraction of the cost of a taxi.
