Would we be right in guessing that whenever you picture yourself in Miami you’re dressed in a bikini or shorts and not much more? Yup, we feel you. But Miami is a tropical, trendy city, and we want you to pack everything you’ll need to enjoy it to the full. Start with these suggestions and customize at will!
Sunglasses: Even it you’re visiting in winter, the Miami sun is bright pretty much year round. Protect your peepers and look stylish and celeb-worthy at the same time. Bonus: they’ll hide the day-after-an-all-nighter eyes you’re bound to wake up with. While you’re at it, throw in some sunscreen – no one wants to chat up a lobster.
One dressed-up outfit: Miami is generally a pretty casual vibe, but you may want to go to an exclusive restaurant, upscale bar, or the theatre. Bring one outfit that won’t get you turned away at the door.
Lightweight long sleeved top and pants: Don’t rule out a little hiking or a day in the everglades – it would add a whole new dimension to your trip! Long sleeves and pants will protect your skin from grasses, branches, and annoying insects like mosquitoes. They’ll also come in handy on chilly evenings.
Running shoes: South Beach residents are fit, and you might just be inspired to join the joggers, cyclists and roller bladers that are a quintessential part of the SoBe scene on Ocean Drive. So pack your sneakers and some breathable shorts and get sweating!
Spanish phrasebook: Well, you do want to make an effort for the hot Cuban dancing salsa with you, right?!
What you don’t need:
Stay in one of our fully furnished studios and you don’t need to worry about towels or a hairdryer, which are provided for you, or a guide book, because your local concierge service can recommend great places to eat, drink, and dance! You won’t need to bring lots of extra cash for meals out, because you’ll have a fully-equipped kitchen to whip up snacks. And if you need something extra like an adaptor or charger – we can try to find one for you!
