The Magic City - With its melting pot of diversity, Miami is like no other party city in America. It’s the perfect blend of a beach town and dynamic metropolitan city, with the best of the day and nightlife. The Miami culture is in the music, food, fashion and art. If you're visiting and want to see a bit of everything, here is a curated list of my top picks to give a glimpse of Miami.

Living in Miami for a few years, I’ve learned a thing or two about where to go and what to do here. I call it the 6th borough, since to me it feels like an extension of New York.

Wynwood Walls: unique outdoor street murals by artists
Perez Art Museum: contemporary (20th and 21st century) art.
Basement: club lounge with a bowling alley and ice-skating rink.
Lagniappe: chill bar, with beer and wine, live music, and patio furniture.
LIV: the as-seen-in-music-videos atmosphere of your club dreams.
