Happy Traveler Comment
I started the week singing in my Senior Choir and one of my members cornered me and said, "I know you know Hawaii better than anyone. I want to take some friends there....who do you recommend?" I told her I would hook her up with my California connection and the very best travel agent in America and gave her your phone number! — Betty D.


The recent renaissance of Downtown Miami has been amazing to witness. Along with throngs of new residents in its glimmering high rises, great restaurants and sizzling nightlife, the shopping options here have been turning heads.

Bayside Marketplace is a two-level, open-air center in a prime location right on Biscayne Bay and in the heart of Downtown. With more than 150 shops including one-of-a-kind and national retailers, in a waterfront setting, this is a place to experience true Miami. Here you’ll find such favorites as Guess, GAP, Victoria’s Secret and Brookstone and more.
