Creole VICE: Exploring The Taste and Culture of Miami, Florida
Updated: Dec 6, 2019
Palm trees, beautiful beaches, sizzling sun, glamour, culture (i.e. American, Caribbean, Latin etc.) and thriving nightlife combined are the perfect recipe for fun and adventure. If you haven't already guessed, I am talking about Miami, Florida.
Looking for a quick relaxing and fun getaway look no further than this popular destination City. Located on the Southern tip of Florida, Miami is the perfect playground for people of all ages-- there's something for everyone. While the Cuban influence in the City is undeniably strong, I was particularly interested in exploring the Creole scene/vibes of the City. On this quick 3-day getaway, I discovered a few cool spots and do hope you will be inspired to try these places on your next Miami adventure! Three days wasn't enough time, but I'll be back Miami!
Below are some Miami adVICE but feel free to leave us some recommendations below of places/things to do next time:
