I am a Miami native and I love the city I live in. There are so many things to do here. One of my favorite things to do is to visit my favorite book store, Books and Books in Coral Gables. While browsing this one of a kind store, I spotted this book, 100 things To Do in Miami Before You Die by Roxanne Vargas and Maruchi Mendez.
Well, I immediately flipped through the pages and decided I needed to buy it. You see, although I live in Miami, there are many undiscovered gems I have yet to experience. This little book is my new guide to Miami.
The book is organized by categories: Food and Drink (my favorite) Music and Entertainment, Sports and Recreation, Culture and History and Shopping and Fashion. As I went through this book, I checked off the places I’ve been to and the things I have already done in my wonderful city. I was surprised to see that I have experienced many of them. However, as an adult I am looking forward to revisiting many of these places and experiencing them through new eyes. Just like a book, you always learn something new the second time around.
This book makes a great gift for out of town guests. It is also valuable to the locals. Have you ever had friends over and can’t think of where to go? I recommend you get yourself a copy of this book and keep it with you. You will be amazed at the new plans that will evolve from the wonderful suggestions in the book.
Since purchasing the book, I have already enjoyed the Southernmost Winery in the USA, Schnebly’s Winery in the Redlands. (stay tuned for my post & wine review)
I gave this book 5 stars!
Thank you Roxanne and Maruchi for your stellar suggestions.
You can find this book at Books and Books, #100 in the book, where you can find the pulse of Miami’s literary world.
