Savvy travelers know that although summer might not be the most obvious season in which to visit the magic city, it is a great one. Summer has, historically, been considered the ‘slow season’ due to the notoriously hot days, but if you think you can handle the heat – there’s tons to do here. Here are all the reasons more and more visitors are choosing Miami as their summer vacation destination:
Miami Attraction & Museums Month: April & May
A well kept secret that locals have been taking advantage of for years – but out of towners are still slowly discovering – is Miami’s Attraction & Museums Month. Culture seekers and families looking for the best attractions will find no better time to visit Miami than in April and May. That’s because during this time, many of the city’s top museums and event venues offer savings, specials and offers on admissions, memberships and more. Z Ocean Hotel South Beach is strategically and centrally located in Miami, no further than 30-45 minutes away from many of the city’s most popular attractions. Some of the museums and attractions that are in on this include:
Miami Fashion Week & Miami Swim Week: May, June, July
Miami Fashion Week is when the fashion industry converges on the city of Miami. It takes place May 29th to June 2nd and hosts a series of runway shows featuring world class designers, events and soirees where you’ll find the fashion industry’s elite, invite only VIP parties, beauty treatments, fashion treats and more.
If you happen to miss Miami Fashion Week, don’t worry – Miami Swim Week is right behind it. Miami Swim Week is the next big fashion event, taking place July 11-16. Swim Week is the industry’s biggest showcase dedicated to swim and resort wear. Going to a Swim Week runway show is catching a glimpse into the future of swim fashion as the top designers like Agua Bendita, Mikoh and others reveal their latest designs. It’s the quintessential activity for those who love tropical travel, swimwear and Miami’s glamorous lifestyle. Z Ocean Hotel is situated on Ocean Drive and Collins – a quick walk or Uber/Lyft ride away from most Miami Swim Week events and shows.
Miami Spa Month & Miami Spice : July, August, September
More perks that happen in the summer are Miami Spa Month and Miami Spice. Spa Month is a citywide wave of offers and deals on spa treatments and services throughout the months of July and August. At Z Ocean Hotel South Beach, our resident spa – The Z Spa – always participates and offers special deals and pricing on some of the most popular treatments and packages.
And finally, ending the summer season is Miami Spice. During the months of August and September, some of Miami’s top rated and most renown restaurants offer special menus for a limited time that give visitors a chance to taste their best dishes, desserts and drinks at more affordable prices. They will often feature a full course menu that includes your choice of appetizer, entree and dessert for a fixed price. It’s the best way to get to know new restaurants without breaking the bank. Our resident Front Porch Cafe – a restaurant overlooking South Beach – has been a long time participator of Miami Spice, so Z Ocean guests won’t have to travel far to experience it.
