Depending on your involvement in the art world, you may or may not have heard of Art Basel. It’s arguably the largest arts festival in the country and it takes place the first week of December each year. It is replete with events, musical performances, outdoor installations and gallery auctions galore. Art Basel is based on an art convention based out of Basel, Switzerland and is responsible for a week of booked hotel rooms and happy cabbies accommodating the masses that fly in for the event, not to mention the hundreds of different international artists that show up for it as well!
Ale Velardo at Miami Chic has written various articles on Miami Beach and the different activities you can find, like visiting the farmer’s market and antique market on Lincoln Road each Sunday, going to the more historic Coconut Grove, spending some time at any one of the various chic outdoor malls in the area as well, and of course, best for last: taking a tour of Miami Beach on our wonderful bicycles.
