Like many destinations throughout the pandemic, Miami has undergone a total cultural redefinition—the difference is that Miami resurfaced all the better. From real estate (with new tenants including the Kushner-Trumps and Brady-Bündchens) to resort renovations (like Miami Dolphins owner Stephen Ross’ W South Beach), the city is hot in more ways than one. Once known for its South Beach party scene, there’s so much more substance to the Magic City now more than ever before. This is not to suggest, however, that there’s a shortage of ways to drink Patron in the wee hours of the morning—there’s still plenty of that. The difference now is, you might want to get up and take a spin class or visit a gallery in the morning. But of course, the one thing about Miami that will arguably never change is the dress sense—it’s still bare and always ostentatious. Here’s everything you need to know about the ‘New Miami’ and how you should pack for it.
Where To Stay
And speaking of a minimalist aesthetic, the 1 Hotel South Beach is another fantastic spot. A zen escape from the glitz of the city, 1 Hotel has an incredible rooftop pool (the one that you’ve probably seen on Instagram) with vegan plates and vegetable juices nearby, as well as a SoulCycle just downstairs.
