Sexy, Sultry, Artsy: You & Yours Need a Miami Getaway

You can only spend so many nights snuggling on the couch with your certain someone, eating take-out and binge-watching your favorite TV shows on Netflix, before the situation begins to feel... old. In other words, it's time for a romantic night out, and that doesn't mean going to the chain restaurant on the corner for a two-for-one dinner special. What you need is a little Miami vice. No, we're not talking about '80's pastel blazers and cigarette boats. We're talking about having a romantic and wicked good time in Miami.

Miami is like an oversized tropical cocktail: It’s part East Coast Hollywood, part French Riviera, a dollop of pastel, a dash of Cuban cosmopolitanism, all garnished with blue sky and the glow of the Florida sun. The city is a sultry recipe for romance.

Best Beaches

So what’s hot in Magic City? How about the beaches? A romantic evening mano y mano with your loved one doesn’t start without a sunset stroll. Crandon Park Beach, Bill Braggs State Park Beach and Lummus Park Beach all feature that famous, sugary white South Florida sand. Couples who want more privacy, however, should head over to Virginia Key Beach, and couples seeking more "vice" need look no further than Haulover Beach. This 0.4-mile stretch of sand is considered one of the top 10 nude beaches in the world. Ladies, even that teeny weeny bikini you got at Yumdrop lingerie is teeny enough for this place.


South Beach is the hip, happening go-to place for Miami nightlife. Clubs like LIV, Mansion and Cameo cater to a crowd looking to dance to international DJs until the sun comes up over Biscayne Bay. If you’re feeling less like Kim Kardashian and more like Kim Cattrall, South Beach might not be your scene. But who’s to say.

Where to Explore

The draw of Miami lies in its many different neighborhoods to explore. Coral Cables has a vibrant nightlife scene but is less trendy and MTV-ish than sister South Beach. It also has a great selection of Jamaican and French restaurants. Speaking of food: If your idea of romance is a plate of Gulf oysters, venture to the Coconut Grove area of Miami. This is where you'll find seafood places selling catches fresh off the boat. Finally, the area known as Little Havana is known for it Cuban culture and food.

Art Scene

Miami is a leading city in the contemporary art movement. The Wynwood Art District features five museums, 70-plus galleries, working studios, boutiques and restaurants. The old industrial buildings around North 36th Street have been revamped into art and performance spaces, and the exteriors have been painted with colorful murals, including work by famous street artist Shepard Fairey. It's one of the most lively areas of Miami.

Sexy, sultry and artsy, Miami has all the ingredients for a romantic evening.
