10 Cool Ways to Survive Summer in Miami

Summer is Miami’s low season for a reason. The potent mix of heat and humidity here is enough to take down a well-seasoned local, not to mention the garden variety tourist. And sure, we’ve got a little something called the Atlantic Ocean to help us stay cool, but coming home with sand uncomfortably entrenched in every bodily crevice starts to get old quick. Plus, trying to clean it out of your car afterwards is definitely not recommended for beating the summer heat. What’s a local to do? Well,

This Island Hideaway in the Keys Is Giving You 12 Hours in Cuba

For years, Cuba has remained largely out of reach to U.S. travelers. Located just 90 nautical miles from the southernmost point in the United States, the island nation sits less than an hour’s flight away from Key West—its sights, sounds, scents and tastes dangling temptingly out of reach. Last month, Sunset Key Cottages launched “Cuba, Curated,” a 12-hour day trip exploring the country’s culture through private tours with local experts.

This Is Where to Drink With Mermaids in Florida

Sharing its name with the legendary baseball slugger of yore, Fort Lauderdale’s Yankee Clipper has seen a few things in its time. Built in 1956 as one of the few beachfront hotels in the city, it welcomed a luminous Marilyn Monroe, who enjoyed some R&R and the company of a Yankees’ special instructor: the great Joe DiMaggio. In its mid-century heyday, the hotel served as a home base for many Yankees greats, who trained—and partied—in the city. But today, the historic resort has a new lease on life.

Everything You Need to Know About the New 20-Acre Paradise in Key West

There’s a transformative quality about the drive from Miami to Key West. In between these two cities—each known for distinctly different styles of sun-soaked revelry—lies a drive that lulls even the most anxious soul into a placid state of serenity. Truth be told, it’d be a shame to lose that rare moment of ocean-induced zen. That’s the allure of Oceans Edge Key West, a 20-acre property from the family-run Singh Resorts that opened its doors to the public in January 2017.

The Miami Neighborhoods We Love

When it comes to Miami, South Beach and Wynwood get the lion’s share of the world’s love and affection. And though both have rightly earned their time in the spotlight, a new class of neighborhood is stepping up to give them a run for their money. Case in point: These five on-the-verge areas are making waves with an influx of compelling art, creative wares, great restaurants and lip-smacking cocktails. Admittedly, Miami neighborhoods can be a bit tough to define, but make no mistake, these districts are distinctive, diverse and deserving of your attention.

Moving to Miami, FL

Thinking about moving to Miami? Of course you are. And who can blame you? Madonna, Will Smith and Matt Damon have all called the 305 home, no doubt lured by its sunny skies, sultry Latin vibe and miles of beaches. But the city is much more than its sexy, glitzy veneer. The diverse Hispanic culture spread throughout town shines through in its cafecito breaks, salsa rhythms and passionate social exchanges. There’s a subtle island mentality at work here, with lax meeting times and a minimalist approach to layers of clothes.

Sexiest Hotel Rooms On South Beach

I’ve learned that life has two tried-and-true maxims: 1. There’s no sex in the champagne room, and 2. There’s no sex in the champagne room (it’s the sort of thing that bears repeating). And that’s it. Everything else is pretty much a crapshoot. But listen, I’m an optimist. I believe that when a strip club’s door closes, the window to a vibrator-stocked hotel room opens. A case in point: These six South Beach hotel rooms with all of the right tools for closing the deal.
