Let this full-day itinerary introduce you to three very different iterations of Miami style

Miami’s many and varied neighbourhoods each have their own unique feel. Some are hip and hot. Others have an old-school grace like Little Havana for example. Stow away the beach towel for a bit, and let this full-day itinerary introduce you to three very different iterations of style.

Stop 1: Delectable art, design and fashion are all showcased in the Design District’s low-rise warehouse spaces. The area’s packed with laidback restaurants, perfect for mulling over questions like, “I love it, but should I buy it?”.

Grab a classic brunch at the family-run The Morgan’s Restaurant (28 NE 29th Street, +1 305 573 9678).

Stop 2: Hop in a taxi for the half-hour ride to South Miami Avenue. Your destination is Vizcaya (3251 South Miami Avenue, +1 305 250 9133), a resplendent early-20th century industrialist’s mansion turned museum.

Stuffed with European antiques (some date back 500 years), and surrounded by ten acres of breathtaking formal gardens, time will silently slide by as you contemplatively wonder around.

Stop 3: Take a 15-minute drive back north to the Conrad Miami hotel  (1395 Brickell Avenue, +1 305 503 6500). Its sleek and sophisticated Bar at Level 25 (off the 25th floor lobby)  is the ideal place to watch the bay shift from day to night, sundowner in hand.

Over the last 10 years, London, New York, Cape Town and Pondicherry have all proudly been referred to as home. Now it’s Copenhagen’s turn, where he lends his travel expertise to momondo.com.
