As you can imagine, we chat a lot with many teachers every week. One of the questions we get asked the most is unrelated to our products.
"What are your favorite spots in Miami?" Of course you need to check out the beach but there is so much more in Miami! Here are a few videos from the Travel Channel to show you some of the more reasonably priced places to go in Miami on a teacher's budget. Check out these videos on the Travel Channel's Facebook. This one shows some hidden fun places and this one as well.
For a look at the free beautiful water views, Wynwood Walls outdoor art murals, and parks plus other free things to see and do check out this one. And, instead of staying where all the fancy hotels are on the water, try staying in Doral and then Ubering your way to the water. By doing so, you can stay at a far nicer hotel at a better price, and get a better feel for people. We also frequently stay at a mid priced hotel in Coral Gables. Or if you want to rent a car once you are in Miami, you'll save so much money by staying off the beach and also renting a car away from the airports such as in Doral. Miami is one of the most diverse cities in the USA, and really the business capital of Latin America, and much of that happens in Doral and Coral Gables.
Our personal favorite restaurant where we always stop is Havana Harry's Cuban restaurant in Coral Gables. You'll feel just like you've landed back in the 1950's. Be sure to order a café cubano and the lechoncita!
While in Miami be sure to check out the stunning mansion/museum Vizcaya and the hanging gardens at the PAMM, Perez Art Museum Miami. Both are on the water and have fabulous views. If the lines are long at Vizcaya, buy your tickets on line while you wait in line, and you can leap ahead of everyone.
