Cross any street corner in Miami and you're likely to hear the language and music of many cultures; dine in its restaurants and take a mini tour of the world. Although this sophisticated destination boasts miles of wide sandy beaches, Miami offers much more. You can have a cup of cafe con leche in Little Havana, Miami's Cuban community; stroll past art deco architecture in the city's South Beach district (dubbed SoBe); explore trendy Coconut Grove; visit attractions such as the Miami Seaquarium and the Miami Metrozoo, or take a cruise from the 'Cruise Capital of the World.' After sundown, you'll find entertainment so varied you'd have to live here yearround to see it all. Head south of Miami to visit the legendary Florida Keys. These tiny islands, strung together first by nature, next by Henry Flagler's railroad and more recently by The Overseas Highway, seem to be in a time zone and attitude all their own. Jimmy Buffet said it best when he sang, 'changes in latitudes, changes in attitudes, nothing remains quite the same.' You will find your worries disappear as you cruise U.S. 1, with its huge expanses of blue-green water, certainly one of the most scenic drives in the nation.

How do you hold an alligator? Very carefully. You must use two hands and you must be gentle.
How does it feel? It is cold. The skin is smooth because it is a baby. When the alligator is older, the skin is rough ('ruff')
Fontainebleau's Back Yard
Remember the dramatic illusion of this 13.000 square foot trompe l'oeil mural depicting the Fontainebleau's back yard ? It surprised north-bound drivers as they approached the bend on Collins Avenue on the South side of the building.
The world-famous Fontainebleau Hilton hotel has undergone a multi million dollar renovation. She got built in 1954 to show her gracious ambience and prestige of those heyday and, became Miami's "crown jewel" only 2 miles from the Art Deco District.
It's a shame the famous trompe l'oeil mural had to disappear as part of the renovations, so maybe this photograph will remember the heydays of Fontainebleau's Back Yard ...
Fresh Fish, fishing charters
You can charter a boat at Crandon Park Marina, next to the Miami Seaquarium, on the way to Key biscayne, on Rickenbaker Causeway, after the second bridge.
Or you can just buy the fish from them when they return in the afternoon.
