Good episode? Give it some love!
The Amateur Traveler talks to Kara from Miami about her hometown of Miami. Kara tells us Miami is not as it is pictured in TV shows like Miami Vice and Burn Notice (except perhaps that it is filled with beautiful people). She tells us about some of her favorite hotels and restaurants as well as cafes where you can sit and people watch. Miami is known for its beach life and Kara tells us where the daring can go to bare all or where you can find a quiet spot away from the tourists. Increasingly Miami is known for its fashion district and its food scene. The summers are hot but offer some of the best bargains on restaurants, hotels and spas… if you can deal with the humidity. Miami defines hot in all senses of the word. So whether you want to see snowbirds or eat stone crabs, Miami might be a place you should check out.NewsMuslim hostess and Disney still at odds over headscarfFrench Flight Attendant Arrested for Stealing Cash and Jewels From Sleeping Passengers’ Pockets and Carry-OnsShow NotesDiamond PRMiami ViceBurn NoticeHaulover BeachSouth Pointe ParkTop Ten Miami RestaurantsBrickell, MiamiKey BiscayneMiami MuseumsMiami Design DistrictVan Dyke CafeMiami Spice Restaurant MonthMiami Spa MonthNeighborhoods of MiamiMiami Design DistrictMichael’s Genuine Food and DrinkCalle Ocho FestivalSouth Beach Food and Wine FestivalMiami Public TransportationFontainebleauMiami HeatMiami Heat TicketsSmith and WollenskyRed, the SteakhouseJoe’s Stone CrabsAdrianne Arsht CenterSnowbirdsCommunityScott enjoyed the group interview in Travel to Namibia – Episode 243Tricia hits the roadAmateur Traveler guest post guidelinesAmateur Traveler site redesign to add countries
