miami beach, day 1

by | Feb 28, 2007 | Travel

So far I’ve only seen the inside of my hotel room, the miami beach conference center, and Lincoln Road. The Adobe Creative Suite conference is keeping me very busy with lots of helpful tools and tricks. I’ve lost track of how many times I’ve heard people (myself included) utter, “ohhhh!”

The restaurant experience on Lincoln Road has been fine, nothing spectacular but the service and palatability has been satisfactory, which is good since most places add an automatic 18% gratuity. Food and drinks are fairly expensive, for instance I’ve seen sodas on the menu for $4.50. So, I’ve been drinking ice water and trying not to use up my stipend before dinner. Lincoln Road is pedestrian only and most places have an outdoor seating area, so people watching is excellent—believe me, there are plenty of interesting characters walking around this town.

My hotel is just okay looks-wise but the location is great, they fixed my broken hairdryer without fuss, and they make strong coffee in the morning, so it could be worse. I must have one of the bigger rooms as two double beds could easily fit in here—some online reviews complained about the small room size at this place. Thankfully, I don’t take up much space. :)
