It may be a default but for people who have never been there this will help them have a better "default" trip.

ok ok i retract my statement.
If you see something that is 50% off but don't need it, walk away and save yourself 100%

I guess I just don't know a lot of people who treat miami as a "destination." it's more of a default
I went after my wedding with DW for 6 days. I can write a 20,000 word TR and it won't be enough. We had a great time there and look forward to another opportunity.
Thanks for your TR, brought back memories.

I'm starting to see why there are so many popcorn threads on DDF. I said something minor as a joke and it's causing such a reaction.

What did you say about the UPS method?

That's one of the few treacherous territories Dan would never step foot in.

And then there's the DDS, if anyone still remembers what that stands for. :)

Awesome TR, especially appreciated it since I'm apparently a country bumpkin since I ain't never been there!   :P  Seriously, I really appreciated all the details (especially knowing they ordered you kosher breakfast at that hotel and that it was fine without a rental car).  Keep 'em coming!

Depending on what you do, a car might be worth it. Maybe even cheaper than an uber to/from airport.

Next up: A review of my trip to the grocery store.
If you can write a 2808 word post, It would probably be interesting. If not, dont bother.
Perhaps I'll try this with the Tues Night grand opening of Seasons Passaic  ;D

Bet seriously @y, Great TR! Thanks

The Chassidish couple we ate with told us they ate in a restaurant in the Days Inn (I think...?) Friday night and loved it, so perhaps we'd look into that for another trip.



Nice TR! Restaurant is called Florida Grill. It's in Days Inn and is $65 per person per meal on Shabbas last I checked.
Also for future travels to Miami Beach there is a minyan in Vendome only 2 blocks away from where u stayed

Thank you, this is really useful information to me!  All these punks are making fun but tons of people (like me) haven't been there or even if they have don't know a lot of these details.  Honestly, even though I've been for short visits, I would learn something from a trip report to Crown Heights or Boro Park too!  All you NY/NJ guys are just lucky out-of-towners are so much nicer and we respond to all your silly questions on our local threads to help you plan your vacations (and often host you for Shabbos) since we've all been to the Colorado mountains, Arizona deserts and Vegas a million times!
