Miami is home to all walks of life, visitors from all over the world, the best Cuban offerings outside of Cuba, and unmatched people-watching opportunities. Begin your Miami experience at Lincoln Road Mall, South Florida’s premier open-air shopping, dining and entertainment complex. It has pedestrian zones with street cafes in the center. Have a coffee and a pastry at Paul Bakery Cafe or shop in over 80 stores.
My favorite thing in Miami is to ride the Bike and Roll Miami Segway around South Beach. If you’ve never tried it before, riding a Segway is easy and great fun. Learn how to ride along Collins Avenue and Ocean Drive amid the priceless antique and imported cars during a 10- to 15-minute crash course (don’t worry, you won’t tip over). Admire the Art Deco capital’s stunning architecture, waterfront, parks, and local neighborhoods around the world.
Complete your Miami visit with a stop in Little Havana, Miami’s Cuban neighborhood. Enjoy a Media Noche sandwich and cortadito (Cuban coffee with a little milk) at Versailles, an authentic restaurant. During your stay, make time to visit Maximo Gomez Park on historic Calle Ocho, where you can see dozens of domino players, and then browse the shops for souvenirs and clothes from Little Havana.
