My DC and I have a full day to explore in Miami next week. We're both snowbound New Englanders, food enthusiasts, adventurers of all sorts, and also basically ignorant of what to do, where to go, and, most importantly, where to EAT in Miami.
We're not looking for the "best" of anything - I've been reading through the various Miami-related posts, many of which are a bit older, so I've gleaned some names, ideas - but are looking for ideas that might result from any of the queries below.
- What do people think of as a 'quintessential Miami eating experience?'
- What areas/neighborhoods should someone go for interesting markets/food shops/restaurants/watering holes, etc.?
- Is there an artsy/quirky section, somewhere with galleries, bookshops, bars and the like?
- Where would you recommend that someone simply wander around exploring & looking to get a feel for the 'real Miami'? (That's a deliberately subjective question, everyone's 'real Miami' is different, I know).
Any ideas/comments/recommendations that might address any of these questions, or questions like them, would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance! Can't wait to come down and explore a totally new city.
