Opinions and Advice Top 5 Reasons to Move to Greater Downtown Miami instead of Miami Beach
For decades, Miami Beach has been the ultimate choice of residence for anyone thinking of living in Miami. The charm of living in a top vacation spot, enjoying the beach lifestyle and being close to the hottest nightlife is undeniable.

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.
