Miami. Under the Florida sun, the beaches ! But the city is not just that and it’s good: street art, opera, shows, good food, shopping…. 5 ideas that made us enjoy this short trip.
The best of Miami in 24h
THE MIAMI BEACH EDITION
An iconic Miami Beach hotel. Reimagined. Surround yourself with luxury at The Miami Beach EDITION. Here, guests can enjoy the personalized service and privacy associated with boutique hotels and the amenities and access of a larger resort. Spacious rooms, suites and bungalows benefit from modern design elements and city, pool, or ocean views. A luxury spa and fitness center, two outdoor ocean-facing pools, sophisticated indoor and charming outdoor venues and extraordinary dining, including restaurants developed by Michelin-starred Chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten, await you.
GET LOST IN THE ART DECO DISTRICT OF SOUTH BEACH
Miami is probably the only metropolis in the United States that is characterized by its modern architecture in Art Deco style. This district, in the 1930s, developed rapidly around innumerable hotels with a new kind of architecture : Tropical Art Deco. Here, discover one of the biggest concentrations of architecture from the 1930s in the world: more than 800 buildings, bounded by the Atlantic Ocean, 23rd Street, Lenox Court and 6th Street. With such an incredible number of buildings, South Beach is the first Art Deco district in the world. Our favorite ? The art collection of the Delano Hotel, one of the first hotels built after the second world war. It represents the transition between Deco and MiMo movements. Radically transformed by Philippe Starck in 1994, the new interiors have largely interpreted the Miami Beach tradition. We linger here at the bar which leads to the garden and which contains incredible pieces of art.
A ROAD TRIP TO KEYS ISLANDS
From Miami, join Keys Islands. Crystal clear waters, snorkelling... dreamy landscapes follow one another along this succession of islands, each one more beautiful than the other. Finally do not miss Key West, the last island off Cuba ... you are not really in Miami anymore! To fully enjoy and explore all the facets of this archipelago, rent a car and follow Route 1 as you wish.
ENJOY NATURE IN KEY BISCAYNE
20-minute drive from South Beach, far from the city center, we take you to Key Biscayne for an impromptu swim! A natural space out of the time to enjoy the parks, beaches and many nautical activities. A big crush on Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park with breathtaking views of the Atlantic Ocean and Biscayne Bay from the summit of the historic Cape Florida lighthouse erected in 1825.
ADMIRE AN INCREDIBLE SUNSET FROM THE STANDARD HOTEL
The perfect place for a perfect sunset is : The Standard hotel. And to live a real dream moment while drinking a cocktail on the water's edge, a happy hour is offered: against a golden light backdrop, people watching is yours!
