Bienvenidos a Miami, indeed.
Mi mejor amiga y yo decided we needed a goddamn weekend vacation. She lives in Brooklyn. I live LA. We wanted to go somewhere easy for a 3 night trip, somewhere that was somewhat of a middle ground for a New Yorker and a Californian, and most importantly somewhere we’d never been. After researching places all over this country (mountains, ranches, rivers) and a little push from some recommendations from God (Anthony Bourdain), we landed on Miami. We didn’t know what to expect. We hate nightclubs. We hate striped shirts. We hate Vegas. But boy, were we pleasantly surprised.

If you head to Wynwood (which I HIGHLY RECOMMEND):
