Greeted at the airport with a swanky silver limo full of people and booze, we headed directly to Liv (packed even on a Wednesday night), and then to the beach the next morning. We then started our four-day rotation of brunch, sunbathing, Mexican food, happy hour, shopping, and nights out. (We hit Treehouse, Wall, Mansion the next few nights--Mansion is the definite winner.)
I almost couldn't believe my eyes. Miami Beach is gorgeous--white sand, warm water, crystal blue colors, beach umbrellas. I loved the art deco architecture of South Beach. The food was good and relatively cheap (anything is, compared to New York). This all made for the perfect escape from reality, and needless to say, I have beach withdrawals right now.
