Miami is always live, especially on the weekend. It doesn’t matter what time of year you go, you can always catch a good weekend vibe in Miami. So if you plan on popping into the city just for 48 hours to get your life and go back home, here are a few things you should do while you’re there:
Book your last minute hotel using the Hotel Tonight app. Once you decide whether you’d like to stay on South Beach, Downtown Miami or Wynwood, the app has great last minute deal options for whichever you choose. You should also decide whether you’re going for the high end luxury experience, a hip and trendy experience or bottom line, you just want somewhere to sleep and bathe. When I pop into Miami for a short trip, my go to hotel is ME Miami. It’s located in Downtown Miami, minutes away from South Beach and Wynwood but much less crowded with a luxury experience.
Things to Do
Hit South Beach– I mean that’s pretty much what Miami is known for. South beach is always live with people and music and whatever else you’re into. You can find yourself walking up and down Ocean Drive drinking and eating and walking around Collins to do some shopping for hours. Then when you get tired of walking, hit the beach.
Explore Wynwood– Wynwood Walls has brought all of the worlds most famous and talented graffiti and street artists to one location. Located at 2520 NW 2nd Avenue, Miami FL 33127 you’ll explore some of the most eye-catching artwork you’ve ever seen. Below are three of my favorites:

Moshi Moshi- I went to Moshi Moshi late one night after partying. I was looking for somewhere that was still open with good food. I was so excited to find out they had booths where you can sit Indian style on a bench and enjoy your meal. I had sushi of course.

Where to Party
Basement Miami is so unique. It’s a bowling alley, skating rink and lounge all mixed in one. The music is usually great and so are the vibes. You can dress up or dress down but the most important think to remember is to have a ball! Address: 2901 Collins Avenue, Miami Beach, FL 33140
Wynwood Tavern is an outdoor bar. You can dress however you’d like, and just go to hang out with friends to enjoy a variety of music. Address: 2531 NW 2nd Ave, Miami, FL 3312
