Explorers Wanted

“Every great adventure begins with open eyes, an open heart and an even more open mind that welcomes whatever comes with open arms.”

Miami has been welcoming adventurers since its inception. Each year, my wife takes my “Editor’s Picks” from our Annual Guide and uses them as inspiration to surprise me with new experiences, thoughtful gifts and adventures galore. She also studies the tips, trends and expert insights from the top realtors we profile in “Power Houses” and takes their advice to heart in her Land Use, Zoning & Real Estate law practice. The information contained on these pages are timelessly relevant; I’ve seen our Annual Guides on coffee tables across the island for YEARS after they are published. I encourage you to take the time to go through this issue and rip out any pages that catch your eye, call a realtor who speaks to what you’re looking for in a new home or investment property — and most importantly, get out there and explore everything the city has to offer!
