JJ1000's list of top restaurants and dishes in Miami:

1. Fuego: Flatbreads are a must, then the back ribs, pastrami egg rolls, smores dessert, perfect date drink are good.

2. 26: Sushi pizza is  a must I prefer it with baked salmon, then the Passion Mojito, Sushi Teriyaki tempuraed, Cilantro Aioli dip and truffle fires, all of their soups are good.

3. Zak The Baker. Menu changes too often to recommend stuff.

4. Kosh: Chocolate souffle is good.

5. Foozo: Foozolis, the caprese foozoli with extra balsamic sauce, their pastas are good as well.

Also notable unique places are The Freeze which makes ices, serendipity makes ice cream (there is one next door to ZTB now), and Miami Beach Chocolates turtles and bark.

Florida does have more than 1 airport - you may want to be a tiny more specific.

There are lots of tourist destinations if Florida, where do you want to go?
There's Orlando, Tampa, Fort Myers, Key West, and of course Miami/Fort Lauderdale/West Palm Beach in SE Florida,
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

miami

 that now its Miami, keep in mind it might be cheaper to fly into FLL (Fort Lauderdale) as both Jet Blue and southWest fly into FLL but not MIA. Its less than an hours drive w/o traffic.

 Also you need to check fares from EWR,LGA & JFK also ISP for Southwest, and check them into FLL & MIA from each so thats 6 pairs you need to look at. And at times the prices can be significant

 Sorry to disagree but 1- HPN parking is expensive and very limited spaces

                               2- SWF is good if you live in Monsey or there abouts,not sure of the parking sit up there also remember we are heading into Dec = snow , Id rather be downstate then Upstate if I have to dig out of that stuff
