Day Five Florida

Still in Florida.

Yesterday we went to a real hip shopping district Las Olas in Fort Lauderdale. Our favorite for jewelry, gifts and artwork so faris the Gallery Seldom Seen at 915 Las Olas.

From there we headed to the the beach, which is reminiscent of some Californian Beach scene or how they try to portray California anyways in the movies and Bay Watch. For those who surf we recommend the Maui Nix Surf Shop, they seem to have everything a surfer could need. There are also two great resorts the Bahia Mar Resort and Marina and the Lago Mar Resort.

From there we headed to 17th St. where everything nautical happens, yacht dealers to chart manufacturers , marinas, docks, you name it. If you own a boat/are a boating enthusiast head to Charlie’s Locker at 1865 Cordova Rd.

Back in Miami Beach for a nighttime stroll along an outdoor pedestrian shopping mall in South Beach with great options for dining outdoors. Nooks and crannies where you can relax under the shade of a palm tree and read a book. Worth a stop if in South Beach.

We stayed at the Blue Moon Hotel, 944 Collins Ave in South Beach. Great quality for $100 a night in South Beach, great location, I would definitely recommend to anyone, it’s also named after one of my favorite beers.

We checked out the Collins Ave Shopping District, this is great for your upper end chain stores, Puma, Urban Outfitters, Guess, Armani Exchange....
