I had a long layover at Miami International Airport before my flight to Asuncion, so I decided to rent a car and drive to Miami Beach. Last year, I wrote about The Sights and Sounds of Miami Beach Florida Part 1. I’ve probably rented a car at Miami Airport’s Car Rental Center more times than any other place in the world.

The first thing I do when I rent a car in Miami is to head on the 112 Airport Expressway Toll Road towards Miami Beach. It was a beautiful Sunday afternoon in Miami and I parked my car on the side of the freeway to take in the scenery.
I’ve never had a layover in Miami on a Sunday and boy did I make a huge mistake. I knew Collins and Washington Avenue had a lot of construction going on, but finding parking was a total disaster. It seemed like everyone and their mom was in Miami Beach. Previously, I’ve had no problems finding parking but Sunday is a whole different animal.
After circling for an hour, I finally found parking and I headed towards Ocean Drive where all the action was.
Although touristy, I love walking on Ocean Drive and it’s a great place to people watch. It was Sunday Funday and all the sorority sisters and bro’s were out having brunch with bottomless champagne mimosas.
The one thing I don’t like about Miami Beach restaurants is that 18-20% gratuity is automatically calculated in the check, even if it’s a party for 1. Last year I wrote about The One Thing I Hate About Miami Restaurant Practices.
I love hanging around Lummus Park in Miami Beach because of its serenity. You can have a picnic, lie down and read a book, do yoga, or just people watch.
You can even work out and exercise in Lummus Park.
One of my favorite things to eat in Miami Beach is a Cuban sandwich since there’s a large Cuban influence in Miami.
