Miami Beach: Day at the Beach
We were about to escape a week’s worth of Winter in Wisconsin on our Caribbean cruise. So why not expand it by two extra days by staying in Miami Beach? Sounded like a good plan to us! We penciled in one of those days as a beach day.
After having breakfast, we headed over to Lummus Park in South Beach for a relaxing day of lounging and swimming. We rented two beach chairs and an umbrella (some hotels have a deal where this is included, so check!) or you can just bring a towel and plop down on the sand.
The beach wasn’t particularly busy for a Friday and we enjoyed the sunshine, blue skies, and the peacefulness.
After feeling sufficiently crisped and tanned, we made our way up Ocean Drive, stopping by the former Versace Mansion which is now a hotel and restaurant.
Then we headed over on the Miami Beach Boardwalk and north to the landmark Fontainebleau Hotel, famous as a setting in the James Bond movie, Goldfinger. With ample beach time and a long walk on the boardwalk to see the sites, we felt our beach day was time well spent.
Here are a few pics from our beach day:
