With all the latin spice, the cuban food, the warm beach, and the beautiful people, I really can’t describe much of Miami for you unless you’re actually there. I think what tops off this city is their nightlife. They say New York is a city that never sleeps, well Miami doesn’t stop partying. And according to the A-List rapper Pitbull “What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas, and what happens in Miami, never happened.” (don’t get it twisted Las Vegas, because I think Miami wins on this one). There are different parts of Miami that people need to dig in deep and check out. When people think of that city, they first think of the beaches, and the nightlife. But theres a lot of history and artsy parts of Miami that people would love to enjoy and see. I’m not going to say much more of what happened, but it was a weekend, another long weekend.
I got to experience a different side of Miami. I thought all Miami was was the nightlife, but my Cuban brother Cesar Gomez (IG:cagm17), a native of Miami, brought us to the art district of Miami which is known as Wynwood. I was able to hang out with the locals and meet different people that moved to Miami from around the world, who were very down to earth and laid back people. Me being the history buff, sight seeing, getting to know a city’s culture, I enjoyed this part of Miami a lot that no one really gets to see. It’s an outdoors arts district which is free to wander around and check out. I highly recommend it.
After I celebrated my birthday in Miami back in March, I thought that was one long weekend. I wanted to come back to Miami to do it again this summer, because the weather is a lot better in my opinion (hot humid almost to the high 90s) which people hate. But thats what makes Miami. The weather, the beaches, and the beautiful people. No wonder everyone tries to stay so fit out there, to show it off in the beautiful beaches. And don’t forget the historical sites of Miami, the sight seeing, and the locals. Thats what makes it a city of culture.
So as much description I want to give, that’s all I can say. Because in Miami, it never happened. Well it did…You have to go to experience it for yourself. Like I said, It’s Miami, enough said. Thanks again for a great weekend.
Note: Miami hotels, and flights are more affordable during the summer than they are during the winter and spring. A Miami native friend of mine said that most people around the country and world come during the fall and winter to getaway from the cold winters they have. So just keep that in mind if you’re planning on a trip to Miami soon.
