Mar 26, 2017 March 26, 2017

Spring’s in full swing, and you should be too! There is a big bunch of events happening around town that will definitely get you up and outdoors. From kid to foodie, corporate and LGBT friendly, there’s an event for everyone to enjoy this spring. I’m especially excited, since I get to compete with my favorite people at Team HB Roswell Realty at this year’s Mercedes-Benz Corporate Run. Hope to see you there!

So, here’s looking at the top events you can enjoy in Miami in April 2017:

1. Miami Open ~ April 1 & 2
Key Biscayne
Okay, so this one started last month, but it definitely deserves a mention, since this is the last chance to catch your favorite stars in action. Great tennis, glorious eats, gorgeous weather and an even more gorgeous gathering of celebs and people makes the Miami Open a must-see for every sports fan out there. Check out tickets and packages, here.

2. Miami Riverday Festival ~ April 1
Lummus Park, Miami River
Kick start the first weekend of the month cruising down history, as you sail across the iconic Miami River. In its 21st year, this free event brings you boat rides, paddleboard and kayak races, historic tours, environmental awareness, kid-friendly activities and live entertainment with a side of delicious food and drink on the river.

3. Sprung! Spring Beer Festival ~ April 1
RC Cola Plant, Wynwood
Gear up to get Sprung! with craft beers from around the world wooing you. Over 300 local, national and international craft beers will be waiting for you to kick springtime fun into action. Not your run-of-the-mill beer tasting, this festival is all about celebrating the craft beer lifestyle with lots of food, fun and games. There will also be a Kitchen Lab for those who take their suds seriously, where you can learn how to pair your food with the right cold one and get the most out of it.

4. South Beach Triathlon ~ April 2
South Beach
If winter was the perfect excuse to pack on the pounds, Miami certainly knows how to knock them off too. Choose between charting the International Course with a .93-mile swim, 24.25-mile bike race and 6.2-mile run or the Classic Course that includes a .5-mile swim, 20.7-mile bike race and 4-mile run.

And, if you plan to compete in the South Beach Triathlon plus the Mack Cycle Escape to Miami Triathlon, you are eligible for The Life Time Tri Miami Challenge, the proceeds of which will go towards ‘Save The Children’. However, you don’t need to be a fitness freak to enjoy the South Beach Triathlon, as you can turn up to cheer on your dear ones too.

South Beach Triathlon
5. Miami Beach Gay Pride Festival and Parade ~ April 7-9
Lummus Park, South Beach
The Miami Beach Gay Pride is a fun, colorful festival and parade that will compel you to “come out” and enjoy! Embrace and show your support for the LGBT community during this three-day fest with a beach party, parade, cruise, live performances, parties at the area’s nightclubs and a family-friendly play zone to keep the fun vibe going.

This year’s honorees include TV personality Ross Matthews as Grand Marshal, celebrity bartender and cast member of “Elvis Duran and the Morning Show” “Uncle” Johnny Pool as Advocate Marshal and activists Liebe and Seth Gadinsky as Ally Marshals. You can further show your support by raising the Rainbow Pride Flag atop your building.

6. Longines Global Champions Tour ~ April 13-15
Behind Setai Hotel, South Beach
Those looking for a more sober time should attend the Olympic-level Longines Global Champions Tour. Expect the world’s top, talented riders and their equestrian buddies to put on quite the show at this jumping event. In its third year running, the second leg of this 15-event championship will help contenders gain valuable points that can make all the difference in the overall competition.

7. Conch Republic Independence Festival ~ April 21-30
Key West
Head to Key West for ten days of whacky fun celebrating true freedom. The Conch Republic Independence Festival features block parties, music fests, bed races, pub crawls, crafts and food fairs, naval parades and light-hearted battles on the sea commemorating a hard-earned victory.

8. AIDS Walk Miami ~ April 23
Soundscape Park, Miami Beach
Another great reason to hit the outdoors, AIDS Walk Miami will have you up and about South Beach for the largest HIV/AIDS awareness fundraiser. This 5k walkathon helps support ‘Care Resource’ and the ‘Food for Life Network’ food bank, benefitting over 15,000 individuals who were or are affected by HIV/AIDS.

9. Miami Rum Renaissance Festival ~ April 22-23

Sapporo Festival.

11. The Mercedes-Benz Corporate Run ~ April 27
Bayfront Park, Downtown Miami

Our favorite event of the year is back. Why is the Mercedes-Benz Corporate Run our favorite? One, because it doesn’t start in the wee hours of the morning. And two, because we, Team HB Roswell Realty, get to participate too!

Yes, we’ll be at this 5k run/walk after work, participating and having fun at the biggest office block party there is. Whether you’re coming to compete or cheer us on (which we’re counting on you to), hope to see you there!

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...

Real Estate News The Top 10 Tallest Buildings in Miami (You Can Live In)
If you’ve been visiting Miami over the years, one thing you’ve probably noticed is the buildings keep getting taller, and the skyline keeps growing. Ever since the FAA relaxed its height restrictions more than six years ago, Miami’s skyline has continued to elevate itself with glimmering designs of glass and light. The tallest residential building in Miami as of this post is the apartment highrise Panorama Tower at 828 feet. But that won’t last for long. Every few months, a new condo tower is announced with ambitions of becoming one of Miami’s tallest buildings.  Call them #supertowers, #supertalls, or #skyscrapers, they’re definitely building the city’s skyline, reputation, and luxury living to new heights. So, who can claim the title of Miami’s tallest building you can call home? Check out our list below of the top 10 Tallest Condo Buildings in Miami – present and under construction – if you like to live above it all.

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...
