Moxy Miami South Beach brings all of the city’s bright, colorful personality to one charming hotel. Located on Washington Avenue, Miami Beach, Moxy is in the heart of all the action for you, your friends and pets.


Upon arrival, guests are greeted by a bustling lobby with a beautiful oval bar, various seating areas with cocktail tables, a courtyard with unique pieces of furniture, and a small grab-and-go bodega that offers complimentary coffee in the morning for guests. At the entrance of the bodega, guests can open the secret door of a vintage-looking fortune teller booth and pick up the “pay” phone. Once guests dial in their birthday, a horoscope will be read to you through the phone.


As travelers check into their rooms, they are greeted with access to a guest-only, roof-top lounge with views of both the Atlantic Ocean to one side and the city on the other. The rooftop has a wading pool, a small bar, a fun photo-op of a giant pool tube, a small outdoor screen for movies and plenty of comfortable seating to soak up the Miami sun. The 72-foot-long pool is located on the second floor and has oversized pool floats, like a flamingo, avocado and rainbow parrot perfect to snap that likeable social media photo.

To grab a bite to eat, guests can grab a late-night snack at Los Buenos taco stand and bodega, make reservations for Como Como marisqueria and raw bar, or pop up to the second floor for Serena, an open-air restaurant and bar with trendy décor. Serena has a laid-back vibe with unique swing seating at the bar and comfortable benches around the perimeter of the restaurant. This spot is perfect for a photo during golden hour with a brightly colored drink and some delicious appetizers.


Outside of the hotel, travelers can jump on a complimentary bike to explore South Beach or head to the oceanfront for two luxury beach chairs per room and towels.

Under $100: Old City, Philadelphia

Wake up feeling like a local at Lokal Hotel, located in the heart of Old City, Philadelphia, on 3rd Street. Take in the sounds of the busy, yet still fairly quiet street below and head next door to Café Ole for coffee and breakfast. This Moroccan café has arguably the best coffee in the area with an abundance of styles and rich, bold flavors. Best known for the homemade shakshuka dishes for two at $16, Café Ole also offers omelets, sandwiches, bagels and French toast.

Jackrabbit Filly Review

On a recent trip to Charleston, my group and I decided to have dinner at Jackrabbit Filly. The restaurant serves new Chinese-American cuisine with a southern flair. We booked reservations as the popular spot fills up fast. Jackrabbit Filly opened in 2019 and has since appeared on numerous regional and national best-of lists.
