Summer’s rapidly winding down, meaning there’s only one long weekend left to spend away. And if you don’t fancy taking an overseas vacation this Labor Day weekend, staycations provide a welcome alternative to a major trip—particularly if you call a locale as beautiful as Florida home. So, what should you do if you’re sticking to the Sunshine State this Labor Day weekend?
We’ve got the ultimate three-day staycation planned for you:
Spend a day at Brickell City Centre
If you’re looking to spend a day in Miami, there’s a one-stop shop for everything you need, from lodging to entertainment: Brickell City Centre. Enjoy luxe accommodation with one of the hotel’s waterfront suites, enjoy an unforgettable al fresco meal at Uruguayan restaurant Quinto La Huella, and treat yourself to something special to commemorate your trip at one of the center’s top-tier stores, like Acqua Di Parma, Allsaints, Bally, Chopard, Diptyque, Intermix, or Stuart Weitzman.
Spend the weekend at a hotel near Biscayne Bay
There are few natural wonders in Florida more beautiful than Biscayne Bay—and few places better to spend the holiday weekend than checking out the similarly-gorgeous art nearby. In addition to stunning architecture nearby, like Missoni Baia, there’s the nearby Pérez Art Museum, home to exhibitions from everyone from painter Zhao Gang to renowned sculptor George Segal.
Spend an evening in Downtown Tampa
While Miami may get more press, Tampa is every bit as exciting a hub in the Sunshine State. Enjoy the thrills at Busch Gardens Tampa Bay, take a trip to the Florida Aquarium, check out ZooTampa at Lowry Park, stay in a downtown hotel like the Aloft Tampa Downtown, and enjoy a great meal at Malio’s Prime, followed by a cocktail at Anise Global Gastrobar.
Check out the new construction at Missoni Baia
If you’re into fashion, Missoni Baia is sure to wow with its stunning Missoni-branded interiors and incredible amenities ranging from an Olympic-sized lap pool to a pet spa. The Asymptote Architecture-designed tower also offers some of the most stunning water views you’ll find anywhere in Florida.
Spend the night in Miami Beach
One of south Florida’s cultural hubs, Miami Beach has tons of excitement at every turn. Start your evening with cocktails at Sweet Liberty Drinks & Supply Company or Ball & Chain, grab dinner at the Lobster Bar Sea Grille, and dance the night away at LIV or BASEMENT at the EDITION.
Whether you’re living it up in Miami or Tampa, Florida is flush with exciting locales sure to help you round out your summer right. Instead of booking some lavish vacation hours away from home, stick close by this Labor Day weekend and make it one you won’t soon forget.
