Just a quick jaunt from cities like New York and Washington, D.C., Bal Harbour and the surrounding Miami metro area make for a perfect weekend destination. Bring along a few essentials to ensure you’re able to cover a lot of ground in a short time.
- Pack a pair of comfortable sandals that can take you from lounging on the beach to exploring the city.
- One of Miami’s greatest assets, the sunny weather, requires a few extra accessories to keep your skin protected. Bring along a wide-brimmed hat and stylish sunglasses to avoid overexposure.
- Stash a lightweight scarf in your beach bag to transition from day to night — the ocean breezes can be chilly once the sun goes down.
