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.

Opinions and Advice Anatomy of HOA Fees: Are Miami Condo Fees actually High?
Condo living is often considered more convenient compared to single family houses. Someone else does almost all of your maintenance -- be it the yard, the roof, the pool, you name it. Plus, there’s typically always some kind of security/surveillance. Amenities like swimming pools, gyms and front desks staff are a standard.
