South Beach Off-Peak: A Photo Essay

South Beach MiamiIn November, my friend Krista and I  indulged in a girls weekend away from the shivering hustle and bustle of New York.

South Beach, Miami in November ran at just my pace. Relaxed, sleepy, not at all crowded and not too hot or humid. We were able to kick back and relax, enjoy the amazing restaurants, meditate on the beach, go shopping and indulge in the awesome night life, without having to deal with loud crowds.

South Beach in November is ideal if you are not a fan of crows and if you don't mind a little chill in the air. The beaches, were so calm and quiet. We were always able to secure a lawn chair and were never closer than forty feet to another soul.

It was a bit windy. The palm trees swayed with the wind, leaves rustling. The temperature was in the 70's for the most part, though we did reach the high 80's one day.

Miami has so many luxury and boutique hotels to choose from. We particularly liked The Raleigh off of the Collins strip. The food here is delicious!


Chess anyone? This set was in the garden of the Delano, another gorgeous hotel on Collins. Make sure you take a stroll through the Delano's lobby which features a super long runway and a hip and quirky interior design.

So here it is, proof that Miami can be enjoyed during the off-peak season. We had so much fun, we're planning to return in November of 2014.
