Also, don’t forget to pack a hat, sunglasses, and sunscreen![/x_feature_box][x_feature_box title=”The Beach Is Crowded!” title_color=”hsl(195, 74%, 67%)” text_color=”” graphic=”icon” graphic_size=”60px” graphic_shape=”circle” graphic_color=”#ffffff” graphic_bg_color=”hsl(343, 94%, 65%)” align_h=”left” align_v=”top” side_graphic_spacing=”20px” max_width=”none” child=”true” connector_width=”1px” connector_style=”dashed” connector_color=”hsl(0, 0%, 100%)” graphic_icon=”plus”]Don’t think that you’ll get a spot all to yourself! You’ll be surrounded by plenty of people. To avoid this (and the mid-day sun) try to arrive earlier rather than later.[/x_feature_box][x_feature_box title=”The Restaurants Are Pricey…” title_color=”hsl(195, 74%, 67%)” text_color=”” graphic=”icon” graphic_size=”60px” graphic_shape=”circle” graphic_color=”#ffffff” graphic_bg_color=”hsl(343, 94%, 65%)” align_h=”left” align_v=”top” side_graphic_spacing=”20px” max_width=”none” child=”true” connector_width=”1px” connector_style=”dashed” connector_color=”hsl(0, 0%, 100%)” graphic_icon=”cutlery”]It’s tough to find a good restaurant that doesn’t cost you a fortune. For the budget-minded, try sticking to eating at restaurants chains (McDonald’s, Five Guys, etc.) and splurging on other meals as you see fit.[/x_feature_box][x_feature_box title=”Walk Closest to the Water on Ocean Dr.” title_color=”hsl(195, 74%, 67%)” text_color=”” graphic=”icon” graphic_size=”60px” graphic_shape=”circle” graphic_color=”#ffffff” graphic_bg_color=”hsl(343, 94%, 65%)” align_h=”left” align_v=”top” side_graphic_spacing=”20px” max_width=”none” child=”true” connector_width=”1px” connector_style=”dashed” connector_color=”hsl(0, 0%, 100%)” graphic_icon=”stop-circle”]Restaurant employees are required to ask you if you want a table, and you better believe that you will be asked at every restaurant. Do yourself a favor and walk on the side of the street closest to the beach. When you’re ready to eat, you can walk by the restaurants and listen to all the great specials.[/x_feature_box][x_feature_box title=”Miami Can Be a Budget-Friendly Destination” title_color=”hsl(195, 74%, 67%)” text_color=”” graphic=”icon” graphic_size=”60px” graphic_shape=”circle” graphic_color=”#ffffff” graphic_bg_color=”hsl(343, 94%, 65%)” align_h=”left” align_v=”top” side_graphic_spacing=”20px” max_width=”none” child=”true” connector_width=”1px” connector_style=”dashed” connector_color=”hsl(0, 0%, 100%)” graphic_icon=”dollar”]Miami has some great hostels, which will save you tons of money on sleeping accommodations! This will allow you to spend more on food, which tends to cost more.[/x_feature_box][x_feature_box title=”Not Everyone Speaks English” title_color=”hsl(195, 74%, 67%)” text_color=”” graphic=”icon” graphic_size=”60px” graphic_shape=”circle” graphic_color=”#ffffff” graphic_bg_color=”hsl(343, 94%, 65%)” align_h=”left” align_v=”top” side_graphic_spacing=”20px” max_width=”none” child=”true” connector_width=”1px” connector_style=”dashed” connector_color=”hsl(0, 0%, 100%)” graphic_icon=”ellipsis-h”]While many people do speak English, don’t assume that everyone does. Instead, brush up on some basic Spanish because you might need it to communicate at one point or another.[/x_feature_box][x_feature_box title=”A Lot of Pretty People Live There” title_color=”hsl(195, 74%, 67%)” text_color=”” graphic=”icon” graphic_size=”60px” graphic_shape=”circle” graphic_color=”#ffffff” graphic_bg_color=”hsl(343, 94%, 65%)” align_h=”left” align_v=”top” side_graphic_spacing=”20px” max_width=”none” child=”true” connector_width=”1px” connector_style=”dashed” connector_color=”hsl(0, 0%, 100%)” graphic_icon=”diamond”]You’ve hear the rumors. They’re true. While walking around, you’ll notice that on average the people you see are incredibly good looking. You may not notice it while you’re there, but once you go back home and look around, you’ll realize that Miami is full of beautiful people.[/x_feature_box][x_feature_box title=”Miami Isn't as Southern as Other Florida Cities” title_color=”hsl(195, 74%, 67%)” text_color=”” graphic=”icon” graphic_size=”60px” graphic_shape=”circle” graphic_color=”#ffffff” graphic_bg_color=”hsl(343, 94%, 65%)” align_h=”left” align_v=”top” side_graphic_spacing=”20px” max_width=”none” child=”true” connector_width=”1px” connector_style=”dashed” connector_color=”hsl(0, 0%, 100%)” graphic_icon=”thumbs-o-down”]No. I don’t mean geographically. In Miami, Sweet Tea isn’t a thing and people aren’t as friendly as they are in “southern” cities.[/x_feature_box][x_feature_box title=”The Term Moderation Doesn't Apply to Alcohol” title_color=”hsl(195, 74%, 67%)” text_color=”” graphic=”icon” graphic_size=”60px” graphic_shape=”circle” graphic_color=”#ffffff” graphic_bg_color=”hsl(343, 94%, 65%)” align_h=”left” align_v=”top” side_graphic_spacing=”20px” max_width=”none” child=”true” connector_width=”1px” connector_style=”dashed” connector_color=”hsl(0, 0%, 100%)” graphic_icon=”glass”]You might think I’m exaggerating, but I’m not. You can literally order a 62 oz drink. Who needs one? No body. Who want one? I do! What about you? Yeah, I thought so![/x_feature_box][/x_feature_list][/cs_element_column][/cs_element_row][/cs_element_section][cs_element_section _id=”113″ ][cs_element_row _id=”114″ ][cs_element_column _id=”115″ ][cs_element_text _id=”116″ ][/cs_element_column][/cs_element_row][/cs_element_section][/cs_content]
