22. travelogue: south beach miami

i was fortunate to have traveled to south beach miami a few weeks back for a weekend get away. it was during the height of winter's wrath here in boston and it felt like medicine to wear flip flops and shorts-even if it rained most of the trip. one of my dearest friends got married at the palms hotel and it could not have been more perfect. their service was impeccable and the grounds were beautiful. while it was a short trip, i managed to get in a few restaurants and other local shops that made my trip really memorable. for anyone who is thinking of taking a trip to south beach, here are a few of the places to check out.

modern and rustic coffeehouse with talented baristas making artful cappuccinos and delicious croissant breakfast sandwiches

well-crafted cocktails, delicious kale salmon salad, and beautiful decor including metallic hand-drawn wall murals

beautiful pool-side brunch with lush greenery and direct access to the turquoise water of south beach

edgy and stylish clothing store with great accessory pieces. while it can be pricey, there are options that won't break the bank
