Get your smartphone camera ready. I am going to tell you about one of the most unusual and picturesque things to do in Miami. And I have a story about the underwater world that lies beneath the massive cruise ships that dock in Miami. Forget online dating. If you are looking to get hooked up, Monty’sis the place to go. If you ever wanted an active social life, join us on the all-day art gallery crawl.
There is a group of historical stilt houses located right in Biscayne Bay that date back to the 1930’s. The area is called Stiltsville, and the structures stand on wood or reinforced concrete piling, generally 10 feet above the shallow water, which could be one to three feet deep at low tide. And you can only get to there by boat which makes the location very mysterious and exclusive.
Coral Reefs Are Screaming for Help. Is Anything Being Done?
I read about this a few years ago, but here it is again. This time the Associated Press is covering the news. Before we start the story let me explain that this is happening in the waterway next to my condo in Miami Beach. Just below the keels of massive cruise ships, an underwater camera provides a live feed from another world, showing marine life that’s trying its best to resist global warming.
Happy Hour at Monty’s
If you’re looking to get hooked up, Monty’s is the place to go. Located right next to the Miami Beach Marina in South Beach, it looks like a shack with a tiki hut roof, but don’t let its modest appearance fool you. It’s the hottest meeting place around. Monty’s may not be classy, but it will give you plenty of candidates in a very relaxed atmosphere.
