If you’re planning to enjoy these benefits, you’re probably looking for an incredible property. Here are some of the properties you absolutely must check out if you’re considering moving to Florida:
Murano at Portofino
Murano at Portofino is becoming well-known as one of Miami’s most stylish condominiums. Not to mention, it features its own private beach club where you can enjoy the saltwater pool or grab a drink in the poolside cafe. The property was built in 2005, and enjoys one of the best locations around- in the SoFi (South of Fifth District) area in Miami Beach.
All 189 units boast magnificent views of Biscayne Bay, the Atlantic Ocean, and Miami Harbour. You’ll love the private elevator foyers which can be found in select residences, while the sunrise/sunset terraces are the perfect place to enjoy the panoramic views.
Echo Brickell can be found in one of the fastest-growing cosmopolitan communities in Miami. The development combines Yoo Studio’s interiors with Carlos Ott’s architecture, providing residents with panoramic views, opulent amenities, the latest technology, and high-standard services they’ll love.
Don’t miss the incredible suspended fitness center, the infinity edge pool, the spa, or the hot tubs.
Icon South Beach
Icon South Beach is an incredible high-rise which can be found on Alton Road. Here, form and function have been combined, delivering the most luxurious lifestyle with water and city views from every room. There are 289 residences here, and floor plans range from 1 to 6 bedrooms.

Apogee was completed in 2008, but remains one of the most luxurious developments in South Florida. Here, there are 67 residences, all with flow-through water and city views. All finishes are the ultimate in sophistication, and include materials like French limestone and granite. And each unit includes its own private elevator access.

If you’re planning to do some travel this year, you’ll be pleased to know that it’s now easier than ever before. Technology continues to make travel less stressful and helps keep us organized- no matter where we are. There are even apps to keep us entertained while we’re on the road, like this Online Casino.
Got an android phone? There are plenty of travel apps available for you. Here are just a few:
Trip It has long been one of my favorite apps- especially for long or complicated trips. It’s super easy to use as well. Simply download the app to your phone and create an account with the email address you use to receive your itineraries when you book flights, accommodation, and tours. As soon as you receive a confirmation email, e-ticket, or itinerary, forward it straight to the TripIt email address. This will automatically import it into the app- including all of the information you need like confirmation numbers and flight times.
These days, I always need a packing checklist before I fly. This can be time consuming though, and I inevitably forget something crucial.
Luckily, this app helps you crowdsource your packing list- and will create a weather-specific list based on where you’re going and what you plant to do while you’re there.
There are few things worse than getting off a long-haul flight (I don’t sleep) and being forced to wait hours until check in. Luckily, DayUse is there to save the…er…day. You can book hotel rooms for the day so you can take a shower, nap, or just catch up on work. The rooms will usually be cheaper than they would be at night, and you’ll usually have access to the same amenities overnight guests enjoy.
Even if you don’t often use Uber while you’re at home, it can be super helpful when you walk out of an airport in a different country. This is particularly true in countries where taxi drivers refuse to use the meter or don’t speak English. You can type in your hotel address, and get an idea of how much it will cost.
I don’t often like to do organized tours, but I still like learning about a new area. This audio app is a great option, and it offers walking tours in some major cities- narrated by locals. That means a local’s view of the city, and not the typical tourist sites.
The answer to this question is yes. In many cases, someone might own several corporations, partnerships, etc. that would require them to have many different EIN or employer identification numbers. Since they would all technically be individual businesses, then obtaining individual tax identification for each […]
If you love exploring the world around you, chances are you’ve thought about traveling for an extended period of time. There’s just one question: how are you going to afford it? Traveling can be pricey, but there are several ways you can make traveling for […]
Been longing to hit the open road? More people than ever are choosing to travel the country by road. According to the 2017-18 Portrait of American Travelers study, the number of Americans taking road trips annually is up 17 points to 39%, with the average trip lasting four to five days. So where have you been longing to go? Is it Niagara Falls on your bucket list or do you long to drive west to the Rockies? Somewhere south? When you have your destination selected, you can get to planning some of the finer details.
Be sure to have a mechanic check your car, so you have a safe vehicle and to ensure a grand adventure. You might even want to clean it out so you’ve got a comfortable space as you’re logging those long hours. Think about which podcasts, playlists, or audiobooks will keep you company as you drive along.
Make sure you’ve got a charger for your phone and have your destinations either mapped or easily able to plug into GPS. Your license, current registration, and insurance are important documents to have handy in case you need to show them for any reason.
There are bound to be bumps in the road. While planning is important for any trip, when you’re traveling, being too rigid with your schedule can limit your ability to embrace new experiences and perspectives. Still you want to have a loose plan or you’ll end up frustrated and possibly lost, and that’s no fun. Don’t be afraid to try new things and look for local eateries and experiences you won’t find at home.
Take The Back Roads
If you’re not on a strict schedule, you will want to get off the interstate and spend some time on the back roads. This way you’ll get to experience the authenticity of the region, whether you’re in the mountains or the cornfields of the midwest. You’ll see things never highlighted in a guidebook or even on a map.
Making the decision to hit the open road is a freeing one for sure. You get to see the country up close and personal and experience new places and people that aren’t possible when you travel via plane. Wherever you choose to go, a good road trip is an adventure you’ll never forget and can inspire you to think more creatively and enjoy each moment.
