Sep 23, 2020 September 23, 2020

It’s that time of year again, when orange skies fill the air and pumpkin spice lattes fill your coffee mug. Fall in Miami is truly beautiful - the weather is cooler, the sunsets are stunning and the pace of our lives starts to wind down a bit. October in Miami is great time to experience the outdoors and get in some nature walks to recharge the senses without breaking much of a sweat - not to mention have some fun!

So, for things to do in Miami this month, we’ve got a mixed goodie bag of online and on-ground events to help you have some Halloween fun. (We highly recommend double checking the availability of the on-ground events before heading out.) There’s also a virtual run, online jazz series, boat show, and carnival to keep you in the highest of fall spirits. Look below for the complete list of virtual and on-ground events to spice up your October in the Magic City:

Opinions and Advice New Emotional Support Animal (ESA) Law Florida: Complete Condo Guide
Finding and moving to a new home can be a strenuous experience, even when you like the change you’re making. This is more so when you have an emotional condition or disability and part of your treatment involves having an Emotional Support Animal (ESA). In this case, finding a new home comes with a whole new set of challenges only you and your furry friend can know. And no one needs the added fear and stress of possibly being denied housing or being discriminated against for owning an ESA. Thankfully, a new Florida law on emotional support animals that went into effect July 1, 2020, explicitly states what you and your current/prospective landlord or HOA can and cannot do regarding Emotional Service Animals. The law applies to all condos, apartments, and rental homes. Last updated on March 27, 2024.
