Miami and Miami Beach

Florida

Delta Airlines . The Mutiny Hotel & Edgewater South Beach

Our love affair with Miami and its beaches began during our honeymoon in October of 2008.  We are fortunate that there is a destination as exotic as Miami within 1.5-hour flight from our hometown of Atlanta.  Everything from its Latin culture, gorgeous architecture, and tropical setting make us want to come back over and over again.  We always managed to find excuses to visit Miami, be it attending a friend’s wedding or mingling with the celebrities at The Food Network South Beach Wine and Food Festival.

To date, we have been to Miami and Miami Beach about half-a-dozen times.  Each time we come to visit, we always try to get to know a different neighborhood and sight-see various landmarks and attractions.  We are never tired of driving through the streets of Coral Gables, home of the magnificent Biltmore Hotel and the Venetian Pool.  Key Biscayne and its Cape Florida Lighthouse make for a nice little getaway from the city.  However, the majority of the time we chose to spend our nights in Miami Beach because of its fun and energetic vibe.

This page will always be a work in progress, as we will always add new content and pictures from our past and future travels to the Magic City.

We are fortunate to live a relatively short distance away from one such marvel.  Ruby Falls in Tennessee's Lookout Mountain is located 1120 feet underground and is 145-foot high.

Usually we simply pass by it on the way to visiting other cities/states, or at most to make a quick stop to grab something to eat. 
But this week I have had enough of hibernating, and managed to convince the husband to do a day trip to Chattanooga.  One of the city's most well known attractions is Ruby Falls.  The falls is located underground, and to get to it we have to go through a cave located within Lookout Mountain.
