Florida Travel Guide: Staying warm in Miami when temperatures drop

As we’ve seen in the last few days, temperatures can plummet in Florida. If you find yourself shivering on the beach, head indoors for a few hours – Miami has lots to discover!


Warm up with vintage choices at the Biltmore Bar or sip a traditional English afternoon tea with the accompaniment of a classical guitarist. The vaulted ceiling in the historic Biltmore Hotel is worth the visit to Coral Gables, and the wine selection – you can choose from more than 100 glasses of wine  - is one of the best in the city.


Steam your body with a sea salt, cedar and grapefruit soak before a warm rhassoul clay wrap in the Red Flower Detoxifying Hammam Ritual at the  ELLE Spa in Eden Roc Renaissance.  Or spend the day ($45 for hotel guests) at the 22,000-square-foot facility and heat your body with a variety of choices from a Finnish sauna to a eucalyptus infusion steam room.


A hot spot on the culinary scene, Makoto in Bal Harbour Shops, offers everything from Kobe Beef Carpaccio to short rib grilled over Japanese charcoal. Slide into the 12-seat sushi bar


People-watching is a primal urge on South Beach and News Café stays open round the clock. Grab a table at the landmark News Café, sip on a latte and watch well groomed pups and fashionistas parade the street. Yes, even when temperatures drop!
