Miami city center includes so many great touristic places and events. Because it was a bit windy on the morning we decided to spent our time in the city. We began our tour with Coral Gables. We wanted to see the Venetian Pool however it was closed. Biltmore Hotel, beautiful houses and Banyan Trees were magnificent. Especially, we loved Banyan trees and the houses on Greenway Dr.

Our next stop was Coconut Grove. Luckily, Elif found some coconuts around the coconut trees and we cut them and drank their water 🙂

After that, we visit Dr. Von D. Mizell-Eula Johnson State Park. Because the beach was too windy we swam in Whiskey Creek. After we made a picnic near the Whiskey Creek we turned back to city center and went to Miami Beach and Star Island to see the celebrities’ houses.
