Welcome to Miami!

May 8, 2015
Miami south beach

As we were driving further south, the idyllic beach settlements turned more into city scenery with lots of high-rise buildings and a vibrant atmosphere full of shopping, beach and entertainment possibilities – we arrived in Miami Beach! The streets are fringed with palm trees, the sun is shining, the bars are serving crazy cocktails creations – if you don’t get into holiday mood there, you probably won’t get it anywhere else. South Beach is the party hot-spot of Miami Beach, famous for its beautiful art déco architecture and the massive white-sand beach which stretches for miles. The water was turquoise and crystal-clear, so the conditions were perfect for a swim and definitely needed in the heat! We also enjoyed watching the scene on famous Ocean Drive, which is basically a runway for people who want to be seen – either in bizarre outfits (or shall I say non-outfits??) or driving up and down in (mostly rented) fancy cars. I wasn’t bored for a second because Miami has it all – great restaurants, great shopping, great beach.

    Great photos! I stayed in Miami for a few days when I was about 12 because my Mum went there for a conference and took our whole family. Unfortunately I hardly got to see anything much because we were very, very jetlagged! (We had flown from Australia!) This makes me want to go back and experience it properly 🙂

      Du bist aber ganz schön rumgekommen 😉 Tja da sieht man, wie Kinder die Welt sehen – Hauptsache Dschungel und Tiere und so 😀

        ja meine eltern hatten eine recht reise-affine phase 🙂 wahrscheinlich ist bei mir deswegen der bedarf lang gedeckt gewesen. als kind fand ich das lange fliegen und viele rumfahren immer nur mühsam 😉

    Bud light..brrrr 😉

    Ocean drive ist sicher ein Spaß am Abend, deine Berichte haben richtig Lust auf so eine Reise gemacht. Bunte Zebrastreifen wären mal was fürn Winter in Wien…

    Aja, dein neues, aufgeräumtes und schlichtes Design ist super!
