How to Enjoy a Weekend in South Beach.
Between long hours at work and a fully-booked social calendar, it’s never easy to find personal time, making vacation such a luxury. When you do get some time away from your commitments, it’s essential to take that time to de-stress and decompress somewhere that feels a world away from your usual obligations. While jaunts to Europe have their place, for anyone eager to skip the long flight but still enjoy some serious relaxation, South Beach is the ideal destination. Before you book your tickets, here’s what to know:
Book a great hotel: As one of the United States’ most metropolitan cities, Miami has plenty of hotels geared toward all different price ranges, but the city’s luxury hotels are well worth saving up for. The undeniable victor among the bunch is The Four Seasons, a chain that always provides an unforgettable experience to each guest. Consistent across continents and time zones, whether you’re in the heart of New York City at The Four Seasons Private Residences at 30 Park Place or at the Four Seasons South Beach, you know you’ll get peerless service, a gorgeous room, unbelievable amenities and services, and all the me time you need when you’re staying here.
Enjoy the city’s natural beauty: Miami is one of the most naturally beautiful cities on earth, and the moment you see its botanical gardens, you’ll be in awe. The Miami Botanical Gardens sprawl across 2.6 acres, offering an up-close look at stunning plant and animal life, as well as offering plenty of quiet walking paths where you can decompress and enjoy the beauty of your surroundings.
Treat yourself to some shopping: The fact that Miami is one of the United States’ most fashion-forward cities comes as no surprise, considering just how terrific their shopping is. If you find yourself in South Beach, make sure to check out the Lincoln Road Mall, where you’ll find everything from Anthropologie to Armani waiting to earn a spot in your closet.
Take an Art Deco walking tour: While the east coast may be famous for its Victorians and Cape Cods, appreciating Miami’s architecture is an entirely different experience. Check out the modern design and bright colors the city is known for by taking an Art Deco walking tour from the Miami Design Preservation League. Not only will you get to see the vibrant buildings that have made this city what it is today, you’ll also enjoy a wealth of knowledge about the city’s history.
Enjoy the sun and sand on South Beach: What’s a trip to South Beach without the beach? If you’re eager to relax, catch up on a few chapters of your favorite book, perfect your tan, or just ride the waves, South Beach’s pristine shores are calling your name.
From the beauty of the great outdoors to the beauty of finding the perfect outfit for a night out, South Beach is the perfect destination when you want to unwind. Sun, sand, and a whole lot of relaxation are waiting for you — all that’s left to do is book.
