July is a great month to enjoy Miami’s beaches and water parks, as well as water sports such as boating, snorkeling, scuba diving, and kayaking, and any other activities that take place on or near water.  

But once you come in from all that fun in the sun, your skin and hair may need a little pampering, so it’s a great time to take advantage of the Miami Spa Month specials that will be offered by some of the area’s best spas and salons.

Scooters in Miami: They’re a Keeper
Lifestyle Scooters in Miami: They’re a Keeper
In April, the City of Miami launched an electric scooter program that allows folks like me and you to grab any rental scooter they see on the road, unlock it with their app, and for about half the cost of an Uber or Lyft, scoot around town.  In my ripe old age of 42, I like to use things only if I truly find them useful, as opposed to doing it just to do it. But, these scooters really are practical and useful, especially for around-the-neighborhood tasks (like showing properties! :)).  While I was riding, I had so many thoughts about the pros and cons of using a scooter to get around town. I hope you find them useful too! Cover photo courtesy of Bird Scooters are a Faster Way to Feel Connected to the City I am always in my car and tend to have my “blinders” on. Cars are just not a great way to connect to the city in a positive way. Walking or riding past people is when you can get a real sense of who your neighbors and city visitors are, you can envision how the newest...
