What You Should Do Now to Get Ready for Summer in Miami
It’s never too early to start thinking (and dreaming) of summer in Miami. Before the season arrives, it’s important to plan what you want to do to help you arrive smoothly and with confidence. From epic annual events and concerts to summer travel tips and tricks, we help you cut through the chaos with our guide to get summer-ready.
Flights, car rentals, and other transportation options can fill up quickly, causing prices to surge before you have the chance to choose the dates for your Miami getaway. Secure your travel tickets as far in advance as you can. Stay in the heart of South Beach with The Sagamore Hotel, Miami’s original “art hotel”. Situated within the historic Art Deco District, our beachfront property is only steps from the Lincoln Road Mall, beach, and popular restaurants, nightclubs, and shopping. Book your summer getaway early to save big on your stay in one of our penthouses, bungalows, or suites.
Get healthy, excited, and motivated for the warmer months to come. Miami’s summer weather hovers around 90 degrees with humidity, so health matters when you want to make the most of our sunny shore. Consider detoxing with healthy foods to have the energy to get out when the weather calls for it. Try working cardio and strength training into your weekly regimen to build your endurance for those summer swims and treks around town.
Start Making Your Summer Wishlist Purchases
Is this the year you buy a new bathing suit or sunglasses, or even a beach pop-up tent? Start making your summer packing list and buy the essentials (or extras) that you’ll need. Stock up on sunscreen and make sure you have a pair of flip flops, beach towel and bag, sun hat, and an outfit for those late Miami nights. Click here for the ultimate Miami packing list.
Plan Which Annual Events to Attend
Some of Miami’s most anticipated events happen in the summer, including the Wynwood Pride Festival, South Beach Mango Festival, International Ballet Festival, and the Overtown Music and Arts Festival. We’ve written about events like Miami Swim Week and ArtsLaunch in the past and we’re looking forward to seeing what they have in store this summer. Stay tuned for our summer events guide to help you get a jump-start on your summer planning.
