I was just enjoying the view of Miami's Biscayne Bay from the beautiful Vizcaya Museum & Gardens when this colorful character came sauntering onto the scene as if he owned the place.
You can check out the full story of our encounter via my blog at http://www.aplacecalledroam.com/home/turning-a-few-heads-on-miamis-biscayne-bay. Statues grace the coastal line of the Vizcaya museum, one of the oldest estates in Miami. #waterlust #weekendgetaway A trip to Miami isn't complete unless you visit Vizcaya, a multimillion dollar mansion that has been decorated with gorgeous gardens. Set against the ocean, this spot has become very popular with portrait photographers for various events. Even with them in the way, stroll around the property and take in all the scents of the plants, flowers, and ocean as you disappear within all the colors. #architecture #green Venetian pool Viscaya Museum and Gardens, Miami, Florida, USA. Vizcaya is an estate that was built in the early 1900’s by James Deering. He was inspired by European architecture, specifically Italian villas, but also wanted to include traditional Florida history and materials in his home. The unique mix of European and Floridian design is so interesting and beautiful. As we drove through the gates, we felt as if we stepped out of Miami and into a totally different world. We were in awe that this estate sat literally a mile down the road from the renown skyline, bikinis, and bars of Miami.
It is open every day from 9:30 - 4:30 except on Tuesdays when it is closed. It is $18 dollars for adults, $10 for students, and $6 for children. It is worth every penny! This picture was taken right behind City Hall in Miami, Florida. This whole area is loaded with restaurants, parks, shops, marinas and plenty of night life. It is located withing walking distance from Coconut Grove. It is also located withing a few minutes drive to down town Miami which includes Bayside Market Place. It is a well guarded area by police and is heavily visited by tourist and locals alike. There are plenty of photo opps everywhere you look. Highly recommend at least a half day visit if not longer.

Along the statuary walk in the formal gardens. Happy Independence Day. One of the must visit places in Miami.
#vizcayamuseum #springvacation #springfun Just a bit of history. Located in Little Havana on Calle Ocho, its an eternal flame in remembrance of those who lost their lives during this event. I found this location right behind the City of Miami City Hall building. It is located withing walking distance from Coconut grove a very high tourist location with shops and places to dine and dance at night. There are several parks all withing walking distances. Parking could be hard to find, but they are around so don't let that from stopping you from visiting this fine area. Plenty of photo opportunities all around.

Farewell.to.Miami Spice 2014...looking forward to next time... This place is definitely a must see when in Miami, I would however, suggest getting there early if you plan on doing another activity in the afternoon because it could take you a great deal of time to see everything. I spent about three hours exploring the mansion and bits of the gardens. It was definitely not enough time. Put aside about five hours to get the full effect.

Beautiful Italian Renaissance-style estate turned museum in Miami.
#Green Was in the mood to find and visit more historical sites of Miami and found the The Barnacle Historic State Park.
It was the home of Ralph Middleton Monroe, an influential pioneer of the Coconut Grove area. We were lucky to be invited to stay four lovely days at this $64 million, 10,000+ SF waterfront estate on Biscayne Bay, guests of the property manager, and had the entire place to ourselves. I doubt I'll enjoy that level of luxury in my lifetime again. #miami #coralgables #StunningStructures The The famous Barnacle boathouse.
Just a all some architecture. Look like Spanish architecture almost like a mini castle! Really beautiful place! While walking historic Little Havana on Calle Ocho, see the stars as a tribute to Cuban and Latin cultural figures, like the Estefans, still Miami area residents.

Where to Eat

Spartico Trattoria - Guests will immediately be enticed by the aromas emerging from the stone-faced wood-burning Ambrogi oven, which was directly imported from Milan. The oven infuses the perfect flavor and texture into Spartico’s pizzas and creates the ideal crust from a unique blend of dough. Guests will also enjoy the warm and cozy ambiance created by dim lighting and cavernous spaces, decorated with rich wood and elegant stonework.

Above Mayfair - Above Mayfair Pool Lounge is a chic, tropical sanctuary, removed from the South Beach scene, hosting some of Miami's most popular resident DJs. Among the 15,000 square feet (1,400 square meters) of space, planks of teak comprise the bar area while a serpentine bench built into the parapet winds around a fire feature. Billowing white curtains enclose eight private poolside cabanas with L-shaped sofas, each containing a flat-screen TV, where guests can sip on signature cocktails.
