Spice up your Miami trip with an excursion to Key Biscayne!

Comments 18 Standard

Key Biscayne is a great option if you want to get away from the chaos of the city or simply just try something new. It is the second island you hit after crossing over the main bridge. Don’t be fooled, despite it being named a “key” island, it is not actually part of the Florida Keys. If you don’t have a car, you can take the bus using 102 Route B. Another option is a cab, but obviously it depends on where you are in Miami, as to how much money it will set you back.

Once you cross over to the island you can relax by the beach, swim, fish, eat, kayak, snorkel, bike ride.. there are many options! As soon as we arrived, my friend and I immediately got distracted by a restaurant we found. We were absolutely starving, so decided to eat at the first beautiful restaurant we found. This place was right on the water and called The Rusty Pelican. You can sit outside or inside and still have a view because of the huge windows surrounding the dining area. We went there for brunch and it was honestly one of the best meals I’ve ever had. I am a huge seafood lover, so I immediately picked their Crab Benedict. It was simply delicious and literally overflowed with crab unlike other places I have been to which gave me what looked like a tablespoons worth. We sat inside because it was brutally hot that day. After we ate, we then ventured outside to enjoy the scenery. There are some lounge chairs facing the water so we ended up sitting outside for a bit and even got to see some dolphins swimming by!

Afterwards we drove to another part of the island and hung out by one the many beautiful beach areas. This was all an unplanned part of our trip, but it was most definitely one of our better ideas! This certainty proves that some of funnest experiences are the one that aren’t preplanned. Now next time you are in Miami, you have an additional unique option to choose from.

Photo Essay: Nice, France

Comments 22 Standard

Nice, France is just so incredibly scenic that I had to put together a photo essay of my trip! Fun Fact: It’s also called Nice la Belle which means Nice the Beautiful. The name is certainly fitting.
