We had an epic weekend in Miami, broadcasting live from the Magic City's Eden Roc Miami Beach with our friends from Instax!
Given the natural party feel of Miami, not to mention the amazing food scene, it's no surprise that Miami is one of America's premier vacation destinations. From the music to the people and the amazing cocktails, here are seven reasons why you should make it your next trip!

1. Eden Roc Miami Beach is the city's first all-inclusive option resort!
For the first time ever, Miami Beach finally has an all-inclusive resort and the food is AMAZING. Like seriously amazing. Between the delicious room service menu and Eden Roc's Malibu Farm beachside restaurant... our taste buds were treated to 5-star meals all weekend!
2. They know how to make a cocktail!
We were guzzling down delicious Miami-Vice cocktails all weekend. Some of them were so good, we used our Instax cameras to document what we drank! (Ya know... just in case we didn't remember, lol.)
3. Miami's Wynwood neighborhood is where it's at!
If you're looking for an off-the-beat-and-path adventure, Miami's artsy-hipster Wynwood neighboorhood is chock full of fun bars, cafes, street art murals, museums, galleries, shops, breweries, highly-regarded restaurants, food trucks and more! There's a little something for everyone!
Our friends from Miami and Beaches + Urban Adventures Miami took some of us on an amazing tour of Wynwood and we vowed to come back another weekend for the tacos alone! Ha!
4. Sunshine and bikinis!
South Florida gets HOT, so you've gotta go swimming! One of the best parts of Miami culture is that it celebrates bodies of all shapes and sizes and how good they look in SWIMSUITS!
Thankfully, Coco Rave Swimwear came to our rescue with their fun, colorful one-pieces, and bikinis. We fit right into the playful Miami look!
4. Workout weather
You always feel better when you workout and Miami is the place to show off your curves! Sam and Nate lead everyone on our Dysfunctional Family Vacation on a pumped up boot camp with help of Celsius Fitness Drink (for an extra boost of energy after waking up at 4 AM, lol!)
5. Self-care and relaxation.
Next time you find yourself in Miami, DO NOT MISS the incredible spa at the Eden Roc. We are still dreaming about the deep tissue massage. Orgasmic.
If you can't make it to the spa, just lay a towel out on the beach and drift into an oceanside meditative trance. Ahhhhh!
6. Day trips and unique experiences!
Greg T got the chance to swim with the dolphins, thanks to the Miami Seaquarium and VisitFlorida.com!
If laying around on the beach without an itinerary isn't your thing, there are endless activities in the Miami metropolitan area to give you a jam-packed day of fun in the sun! We love the art deco walking tours, checking out Little Havana, taking in a game at Marlins Park and day trips to the Everglades!
7. Concerts, nightlife and friends!
We were lucky enough to be treated to an intimate concert from our friend Ne-Yo, but that's only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to Miami's infamous nightlife!
Sam danced the flamenco at Tapas & Tintos! Skeery spilled vodka down Sammi Sweetheart's shirt (recognize her from the OG Jersey Shore cast?), Kathleen took a midnight dip in Eden Roc's incredible pool and we drank a lot of cocktails and Cavit pinot grigio!
