Jan 22, 2017 January 22, 2017

Welcome to the month of love! February’s here, and it’s time to get into celebration mode once again. With Valentine’s being the highlight of the month, Miami’s got a mixed bag of events that will help singles and couples make the most of it. So, whether you’re looking to celebrate the day with each other or carry over the spirit and indulge in your favorite activities, here are a few picks from around town:

Valentine’s Day – Feb. 14

Move over sappy greetings and chocolate boxes! If you’re in Miami for Valentine’s, try one of these to surprise your sweetheart –

Ø  Have a jam-packed work-week on Valentine’s? Let Andrea Bocelli serenade your beloved the weekend before. With yet another sensational performance scheduled for Feb. 12 at the AA Arena, let the Italian Tenor set the mood for a romantic Valentine’s. Tickets on sale at $80 onwards.

Ø  Depending on the kind of pace you want to set for V-Day, Miami’s cruise operators have ‘high-speed and adventurous’ to ‘mushy and romantic’ private tours on offer. Try a private sailing trip on the Bay with a professional photographer, private sailing charter or speedboat tour.

Ø  Let your love soar with a seaplane, helicopter or balloon tour over Miami. Watch the sunset up-close, glide over a moonlit Bay or take in the twinkling cityscape at twilight with one of these air tours.

Ø  Romantically engaged or not, a swim with these docile creatures will surely fill your heart with love and warmth any time of year. Swim with seals or dolphins at the Miami Seaquarium and feel unconditional love on that special day.

Ø  Get those spirits high with a pub crawl. Flirtatious singles and couples can enjoy drinks and more with South Beach’s VIP Club Crawl that can be booked for any Friday and Saturday throughout February.

Ø  And, if all else fails, simply head to the quieter South Pointe Beach or Key Biscayne. Take along a mat, picnic basket and champagne bottle to let the sunset, sand and waves work their magic.

Miami Condos with Shabbat Elevators
Real Estate News Miami Condos with Shabbat Elevators
Last updated June 11, 2021. Whether you refer to it as the Sabbath, Shabbat, Shabbos, or by any other term, your religious commitment to observing a holy day of rest should not prevent you from enjoying a luxury condo lifestyle in the subtropical paradise that is Miami.  For this reason, a number of condo communities provide the convenience of a Shabbat or Sabbath elevator, which is a specially programmed elevator that stops automatically on every floor during the Jewish Sabbath, from sundown on Friday evening until sundown on Saturday of every week.  This service is provided in order to accommodate the Jewish religious law that prohibits religious observers from pushing buttons or operating machinery during the Sabbath. While Miami today is known as a particularly Jewish-friendly metropolis, Jews were not even allowed to enter Miami Beach Hotels until the late 1940s. But by the 1950s they began to lay down roots in Miami Beach and to impact the economy, politics, and social flavor...

Brickell Avenue Bridge Schedule, Traffic and Solutions -- All You Need To Know
Transportation Brickell Avenue Bridge Schedule, Traffic and Solutions -- All You Need To Know
Ever tried driving from Brickell to Downtown Miami for lunch? Most Miamians dread the thought of catching the dreaded Brickell Avenue bridge, a drawbridge that opens every hour or half-hour during non-curfew hours to allow river and traffic and boats to pass under.  * This article was updated on June 7, 2021 So what’s the problem? A big one! When the bridge opens, it ends up turning the city into a parking lot. With the last two building booms, there’s been a sudden surge in Downtown population since 2010 that has not stopped, and hence, denser traffic. And with Brickell now one of Miami’s hottest neighborhoods, serving as Miami’s vital financial hub, dense residential condo neighborhood and go-to place for nightlife, travel to and from Brickell and Downtown Miami is unavoidable.  This is why almost every second year, the FDOT faces requests to place restrictions on opening the bridge for maritime traffic during rush hour or extending curfew hours. However, listen to the marine...
