Summertime for us is all about spending quality time with friends and family. We love being out and about in the dreaded nasty sticky heat. On the boat, at the beach, bbq's, days at the park, long bike rides and so on. What I love most is wandering and discovering, taking time out to just think and appreciate everything that we are blessed with, and what better way to do that then by appreciating the tropical gardens in Miami.
Every Sunday for the month of August, Fairchild Tropical Gardens (open 9:30-4:30) will waive their entrance fees. I'm sure the park will be hot and packed, but you should still visit!! Dress comfortably (4" heels and tight ass clothes aren't really going to do you any well here), bring lots of water, and your camera!
The Kampong in Coconut Grove will offer morning guided tours in August
