    Here's Your Perfect Three-Day Itinerary For Miami, Florida

    🎵Welcome to Miami 🎵

    Miami might be known for its expensive nightclubs and massive parties on South Beach, but it is, IMO, the perfect spot for a chill long-weekend getaway.

    Here's a guide to some of my favorite things to eat, see, and do (without a nightclub cover charge in sight). But first, a couple of tips:

    - Most of the hotels are located along the beach. I stayed with a couple of girlfriends at a ~luxury hostel~ called the Freehand. The rooms themselves are pretty basic, but it's only a block from the beach and cheaper than most of the nearby hotels. I'd stay there again.

    - To save some pennies, use the free trolley service to get around. It has routes through lots of the major areas including Miami Beach, Wynwood, and Downtown.

    Start the day right with a coffee and a pastry from Panther Coffee.

    Now throw down a towel on Miami Beach. (Groundbreaking idea, I know!)

    For lunch, head to Taquiza and fill up on delicious Mexican food.

    Walk or ride along Ocean Drive, stopping to admire the gorgeous art deco buildings.

    Sip on a cocktail (or two) in the courtyard at Broken Shaker.

    Then pop next door to 27 Restaurant & Bar for dinner.

    Finish off the night with a dance at Bodega Taqueria y Tequila.

    Fuel up with breakfast at Zak the Baker.

    Walk the colorful streets of Wynwood Art District.

    Stop for lunch at the trendy market hall, 1-800 Lucky.

    Get some sweet treats — and let's be honest, sweet Instagram content — at Cielito Artisan Pops.

    Go for a wander around Miami Design District.

    Head for an early dinner at KYU to take advantage of happy hour.

    Close out the night at Lagniappe with some wine and cheese.

    Explore the streets of Little Havana.

    For lunch, head to Sanguich De Miami and wrap your gob around a Cuban sandwich.

    Learn to salsa at Ball & Chain.

    Pop next door to Azucar and treat yourself to some homemade ice cream.

    Treat yourself to an ember-roasted oyster at the aptly-named restaurant, Arson.

    Enjoy a last supper at Fooq's.
