PICNIC PERFECT

From moonrises over our own lagoon to sunsets on the Everglades, Miami’s less obvious romantic settings unfold in the heat of a tropical moment. So what are some guest favorites for the perfect picnic date location? 
We asked Ambassador Daniel to suggest his picks: “With parks and green spaces all over Greater Miami, it’s easy to escape. Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden offers nearly three miles of pathways that meander past rare tropical plants. Then the romance of the Renaissance comes alive in the 10 acres of formal gardens at Vizcaya, a bayfront mansion filled with decorative treasures from Old Europe. Moonlight tours of Vizcaya, after a Sofitel prepared picnic, are especially romantic!” Who could argue with that?

SOFITEL GASTRONOMY
Creating delicious desserts is a labor of love for our Pastry Chefs at Sofitel. Many are award-winning and considered experts in their field. As a member of the Sofitel Miami recently remarked, “What we create is next to perfection. So if your dining companions don’t want to share dessert, i’ll take the blame.”

AIRPORT ART

Miami has a reputation for being a colorful, vibrant city — and its travel hub is no different. Miami International Airport (minutes from Sofitel) is part of the city’s Art in Public Places program, which focuses on taking local artists’ work out of museums or galleries and placing installations and exhibitions where more residents and visitors can view them. Travelers with layovers at Miami International Airport should take some time to peruse and admire the unique pieces in the airport’s South, Central and North Terminals. A few eye-popping displays include detailed murals, travel-themed light panels, and walkways and walls that incorporate seashells, coral and other marine wildlife seen around town.

We continue our look back at Art Basel in Miami with a little touch of Europe - of sorts. Mr. Brainwash, a Banksy protégé, is back in action in Miami with traditional yet out-of-the-box usage of familiar pop culture images and bright colors. This art installation is one of our favorites….
