Searching for the Fountain of Youth, Ponce de Leon arrived in Miami in 1513. People still haven’t found it, but they sure have a good time trying.
Miami is more than a beachfront city. The average boy and girl will find a laundry list of beachside luxury resorts, ultra-lounges, cafes, coffeehouses, and upscale restaurants to make every snowbird smile with glee.
Aside from its glamorous resort image, the city owes much to Overtown. That stable black middle-class community was sacrificed for freeways and a mega-interchange that make it easy for drivers to get around today. Fortunately, a number of historic relics survive on the edges of that community and downtown.
Another remarkable survivor is the Historic Lyric Theater with its Lyric Live series exposing local talent. Count yourself lucky to attend.
