Dining The Palm, Makoto, Carpaccio
Hangouts Le Sirenuse, Mike’s Cigar Lounge, Bal Harbour Shops

For the past 42 years, I’ve reveled + rollicked in the 33154, which makes one forget that they’re in Miami. The privileged ones who call this magical paradise home enjoy an ideal lifestyle gushing with tranquil water views, relaxed vibes and sunny dispositions. Homes in Bal Harbour, Bay Harbor Islands and Surfside are steps from white sandy beaches, world class dining + shopping, dog, kite + skate parks, golf courses and houses of worship.

For the past 15 years, I have lived and loved an amazing waterfront neighborhood on the shores of Biscayne Bay. Sunset Harbour was built around a 125 slip Sunset Harbour Yacht Club. Miami’s culinary hot-spots soon followed and continue to attract foodies from around the globe. Upscale grocers, boutiques and multiple fitness options complete the lifestyle.

Commonly referred to as “The Venice of the Americas” due to having over 300-miles of waterways, Fort Lauderdale is the place to be in South Florida. Known for its international vibe, beautiful sunsets, boutique shopping, iconic beach boardwalk, and extensive options for dining and entertaining, the Las Olas neighborhood attracts everyone from the East Coast snowbird to the Florida native.
