Great Eats in Miami Beach

When visiting Miami Beach, every tourist will encounter the typical “traps” one finds in a resort city/tourist destination.  As a local, I have had the opportunity to sample the plethora of restaurants on this seven-mile-long sand bar.  Luckily, I live like I travel, on a budget.  So, like when traveling, I on occasion may select to splurge or more often, choose budget-friendly restaurants.  Usually in Miami Beach, even when I “splurge” it is during Miami Spice months where I can sample expensive restaurants for a budget price-fixed menu.

Detach in Marathon, FL Keys

Being an adult student again, in between semesters I need to rest, relax, and get away.  Typically, a cruise always seems a great choice as the prices tend to be less expensive for Florida locals than any other trip.  This past August, I wanted to do something different and actually see parts of Florida that I have not seen in the entire eleven years I have lived here- specifically the Fort Myers area.  So that is in fact what I chose to do.
