Sun yourself in Miami Beach -...
Sun yourself in Miami Beach - I'd only spent about an hour on Venice Beach, CA a couple of years ago (I never was a 'sun' person), but this time it was definitely a different experience.
I will warn other 'pale-skinned-winter-lovers' to be careful in the sun - it didn't take long for me to burn those parts which I didn't cover in sunscreen - I'd lathered up before leaving the apartment, but when I got to the beach, I REMOVED MY SHOES(!!!) and walked across the beach - therefore, despite digging my toes into the warm sand while I lay back & read a good book, my feet got quite burned (they turned purple, actually!) The accomodations... they were FREE!
Relatives have a condo there, and their daughter has one in the same building, so between the two, I stayed a week at no charge - not too shabby, for a building on Ocean Drive in South Beach (the Miami nightlife 'hot-spot'), one of the condos looking out on the ocean - just a 60-second walk away...
Of course, one must give up SOMEthing for a free stay - so I had to enjoy 4 nights in the nice apartment with the ocean view, and 3 in the one under renovations, with boarded-up windows...

THE DISNEY PARKS
THE DISNEY PARKS
The Disney Parks in Florida are like a huge city. There are mainly 3 parks:
- DisneyWorld Miami.
- Epcot Center.
- MGM Studios.
The ticket costs 97 USD and allows you to enter any of the 3 parks during 4 days going into any of the attractions. People normally visit one of the parks each of the 3 first days, and repeat the favourite one on the 4th.
Not to be confused with the Florida Keys, which are south of Miami, Key Biscayne is actually within city limits. This "island" is a small community of its own, with several nice yet uncrowded beaches as well as some good restaurants and the Miami Seaquarium.
