By Josie Gulliksen

 

Perhaps it’s a good idea to take a break from watching the forecast, and worrying about any impeding “weather patterns” to focus on what to do in our lovely Magic City. September has plenty of offerings that showcase our museums, Downtown Miami, luxurious hotels and our love of fashion. Part 1 of a two part series.

Miami Hotels Month

Stretch out the summer with a staycation at one of 50 hotels around Miami offering steep discounts. With so many stellar hotels on Miami Beach, around Downtown Miami and in Coral Gables and Coconut Grove. Offers include a third night free, percentages off, food and beverage credits and many offer complimentary valet parking. Through Sept. 30.

DWNTWN Art Days

Spend the day discovering Downtown Miami from Sept. 8-10 through interactive activations, activities, performances and exhibitions during the Sixth Annual DWNTWN Art Days. Stroll over to NE 2 Ave. and 2 St. where an old style pay phone will randomly ring, prompting passersby to interact and partake in conversation. Or visit The Hub at the Miami Center for Architecture and Design at 100 NE 1 Ave. and enjoy cocktails while you draw during Drink + Draw. The Hub is also the perfect spot to plan out your Arts Days adventure. If you love Broadway shows, visit the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts on Sept. 9 for their ArtsLaunch event. They’ll have discounts on show tickets and plenty of mini-performances by Miami’s major performance groups. Throughout Downtown Miami.
