Hello and welcome to the first instalment of my Miami posts.
On the 20th January, I headed off to Miami with my baby sister in tow for a girlie holiday. We planned to explore, eat and laugh our way around the incredible city – and that is exactly what we did. It was honestly the trip of a lifetime; Miami has been high on my hit list of places to visit for so long now, so to have been able to travel there for a whole week (and with my sister, Faye – bonus!) it really was a dream come true.
The weather was totally glorious throughout our trip, reaching highs of 29°c on most days, which considering it was January, was rather splendid indeed. With the sun beaming down on us for a whole week and with a somewhat needed sea breeze, we honestly couldn’t have asked for better.
Miami has so much more to offer than I ever thought possible.
From the incredible beaches of which I expected, to the high rise Downtown area and of course- the oh so colourful areas of Wynwood and Little Havanna, there is truly something for everyone and I’m here today to share exactly what we got up to in the hope to inspire your next trip… Honestly if you’re keen, book a ticket, you certainly will not regret it!
So grab your tipple of choice and perhaps a snack or two as it’s a bit of a long one but a fab one which may well leave you wanderlusting.
*Disclaimer it definitely WILL leave you wanderlusting.*
Next we headed across town to Downtown Miami, a place that as I mentioned earlier, is on the up, and has a real vibrancy to it, however not quite as picturesque as that of Miami Beach… yet!
Here we stayed at The Langford, a truly beautiful hotel with a real New York feel to it, which probably has something to do with the fact it was built for purpose as a bank. With traditional features reminiscent of that of a bank, the hotel has modernised its interior, but with a retro 1920’s touch.
Everything from the wallpaper to the head-boards of the bed, to the furniture and flooring has been thought out, with its original era in mind, which is something that truly inspires me to say the least.
One thing I must say about this place is that the beds are simply incredible! Absolutely huge, luxuriously comfortable and with a mountain of fluffy pillows, all of which provided the best night’s sleep of the trip.
