Do you have a favorite author whose stories are set in a specific locale? What could be more fun than to plan a trip down to the area where your favorite author uses as a base for their books? Heather Graham, author of such books as The Killing Edge and Unhallowed Ground has based a number of her thrillers in the Miami area. And there is something to be said for being able to walk the area where your favorite author has written about. It gives you just a fabulous new angle to the books you love to read when you can say, “Hey, I saw that. I ate at that restaurant or walked along that beach.”
Miami is the 42nd largest city in the United States, making it home to over 5 million people. Known as the Cruise Capital of the World, the Port of Miami can handle some of the largest cruise ships available. Although the area that includes Miami was claimed by the Spanish in 1566, Miami itself wasn’t incorporated as a city until 1896. Next to New York, it has one of the most widely recognized skylines in the world, with sleek tall skyscrapers surrounded by the beautiful blue waters of Miami Beach.
Whether you are looking to spend some quality time with museums, attend the theatre or are just looking for a long lazy week on the beach, you cannot go wrong with a trip to Miami. Biscayne Bay is a haven for diver sand snorkeling with its crystal clear waters and tropical fish. And if you’re into music, everything from hip hop to Florida’s Grande Ole Opera is available.
