Leave a comment Video

We love to travel, but most times we don’t have the schedule in our hand to travel often. We planned and decide flight out to and have an itinerary of 48 hrs to explorer miami florida

We hope this itinerary serve you a guide and inspiration to a least travel and experience the nature, culture and people of this planet call earth.

The guide we provide is a living example of the activities we did while doing our short vacation.

We covered the following: First day (24hrs)

1. Tip and tricks for flying out of newark airport

2. Getting a rental car by accumulating reward points

3. Our first stop : the venetian pool

4. Hotel checking and early snack at aventura mall

5. Drive to lincoln road mall and shopping

6. The spaniola way and wine stating

7. Walking on ocean drive, bar hopping

Second Day: 14hrs

1. Early walk and enjoyment of the hotel grounds and pools

2. Drive to Hollywood beach .

3. Drive to downtown miami

4. Stay at an airport hotel to depart early

Departure:

The Newark airport:

This international airport is one that offers most fight options for Pennsylvania and jersey residents depending your destination it may be cheaper. I find that there are less cancellations out of this airport compare to the JFK and PHL airports.Parking options requires either a shuttle or airtran to the terminals. I f you arrive early enough, the lines to security are much more manageable. Once you pass security the restaurants and lounges give you plenty of options to relax and stick around.

Arrival:

The Fort Lauradel Airport:

This airport is smaller compare to the miami airport. If you are carrying lots of luggages if could be tough the checkin and checkout process. One advantage this airport has similar to the orlando airport is that car rentals pick up and drop off are right at the gate. Easy to pick up easy to drop off.

Rental car:

We got virtually a car rental from accumulating and rewarding credit card points. You can learn how to do it free follow my link to tutorial

Accumulating travel points

We choose Avis as our rental company because of their reputation and past experience, like any other company there are up-sells and extras that can add up, but we went with a basic rental and the service went smooth. We were out with keys in about 30mins.

First stop: THE VENETIAN POOL

The drive from FLL to coral bagels is pretty straight forward you drive straight south via interstate I95. The once on coral gables you hit couple of turns and then you find the uncrowded parking spot of the venetian pool 2701 De Soto Blvd, Coral Gables, FL 33134

This modern oasis was constructed around 1920 by george derrick. This originally built on top of a quarry with natural water flowing from underneath and palms trees and waterfall, makes you transport to a mystical place in greece. Definitively once of the rarest municipal pools in the united states. There is free parking and the is a fee to enter the pool. I can say that the overall experience is a very clean atmosphere , I didn’t see any food So I am assuming no food is allowed. The highlight of the place is the big waterfall. A very beautiful every traveler should experience.

After spending few hours, we then headed to check in to our hotel in aventura.

The Hotel:

Turnberry Isle Resort by Marriott

The checking was a breeze. This is a beautiful hotel with amenities like onsite restaurant, valed parking, shuttle to the beach and is right across from the aventura mall. The grounds, pool and the golf zone are beautiful.

We got a deal to this hotel thru the ios app call hopper. We book the hotel and could not be happier you can see how clean this hotel was

The hotel is undergoing some renovations and it should be more exciting new things to come like a new waterpark onsite

we actually spent our anniversary and the rooms facing the golf course made it so romantic watching the sunrise in the morning. We have a full video where you can check our laughs and joys around this hotel.

Sightseeing : Aventura Mall

after checking in to the hotel, we make our first to to the aventura Mall in aventura.

This mall is very convenient if you are staying at the turnberry isle resort. Its right across the street. So if you are traveling and forgot your beach accessories or need extra set of clothes for that nice dinner, you can bet this mall will have it. Its also a very high end mall with lots of fashion name stores and nice restaurants on the first floor. The main entrance has a cool slide and water jets for kids to enjoy.

 

The Venetian Pool Miami

Leave a comment Video

As a traveler we are always looking for ideas of interesting places to visit. It was always a dream for us to visit The venetian pool in Miami , Fl. This was constructed in the city of Coral Gables around the 1920s. Originally sitting on top of a quarry arquictet and founder George derrick created an illusion of distinctive Venetian pool. This natural lagoon water flows from underneath the coral caves. A bridge, waterfall, palm trees and sand make this municipal pool one of the largest in the United States.

My wife and I decide to take the challenge to travel to Florida to visit this incredible pool. Anyone that seems picture knows who special and unreal feels. We decide to make a 48 hr   trip to Miami on the cheap. We bought affordable Airline tickets from united with restrictions built making the reservations under $100 each trip. Once we had the air ticket we secure a deal l in hopper for a nice hotel for around $140 dollar a night. Because of accumulating enough travel point thru my credit card. I was also able to afford a 2 day car rental at no cost. The initial one day trip to the Venetian pool was well organized.

 

Just in flights and hotel we probably spend about $130 for both on flights

About $140 on a hotel stay.

We also were able to afford a good meal from the chain restaurant call campo campero. This is a chain restaurant that focuses on fried and grilled chicken recipes at affordable prices.
Making the first day of the trip with total expense of around 300 dollars, not a bad deal hugh?

If you are adventurous like me

Dont forget to visit this marvelous place in the middle of the city of coral gables, FL. I want to write my honest review about the venetian Pool Miami review. To recap this Exotic place is locate within short distance of Miami airport and Miami beach, It can be a fun day trip for families. you can drive or take an uber. There is a parking lot locate across the pool and there is an entrance fee of 20 dollars. there is no food allow but I recommend to just stop at the close mall or another close by attraction and eat before you get there. it is gorgeous for picture taking and your picture can capture beautiful memories. Me and my wife visited this place as soon as we landed and spent most of the afternoon. it was a crazy 48hr trip to Miami on a budget and exactly planned
if you want to know the details or do a similar trip
take my ideas.

 

I am dropping over a PDF guide to find affordable travel to Florida on the cheap.

Thank you for this opportunity

Destin Florida Our Road Trip Vacation Day 3

Leave a comment Standard

Our Destin Family Vacation Vlog #3 . In this trip we explore the 3 closest beaches to our hotel. One of the beach, Noriego point beach is a very secluded beach use by locals. this is not really a beach but a short spot close to the bridge that connects destin and the nearby town. the Noriego point is a good spot to do snorkeling with kids and enjoy watching the small boats passing by. the next beach we visited was the top sail beach. this is a beach more closer to the tourist spot and closest Hotel to the area. it was very crowded because i believe this was one of the best spot to hit at the beach, Be sure to plan for parking as the spots around these areas are hard to find and are always taken. staying at one of the hotel in this area may be your best bet . anyways again back to the beach subject. one of the details that caught my attention is that  the water nice and clear, the waves are calm. after our afternoon spent we headed to Walton beach on the next town . we had the luck to see dolphin swimming by from the fishing pier and a sea turtle. We then headed to a closer by Air space museum. the museum was very interesting as the planes were outside and walk able. inside the museum there was a lot of history around the www2 and the people who participate in the area. then after a nice afternoon of learning little be of our history we headed to a very nice restaurant call lulu . this is an interesting restaurant close to the bay and it has paddle boarding and different beach games for kids and adults. I found this restaurant very unique in its style. Destin has capture my heart in the sense that is not a overcrowded and the activities are all family related. small town inclined to give families their best vacation experience without the crowds. Definitely Destin Florida vacation is a vacation that anyone need to consider.

Thank you for watching our Destin family vacation Vlog3
