The Miami Boat Show (Feb. 11-15) and the South Beach Wine and Food Festival (Feb. 24-28)
The Beacon Hotel is always an exciting place, but when the Miami International Boat Show and the South Beach Wine and Food Festival come to town in February, there just might be an extra buzz in the air.
The Beacon South Beach is a boutique hotel that’s been earning rave reviews from its guests since it opened in 1936. Nestled in the heart of Miami Beach, it has beautifully appointed rooms and magnificent suites overlooking the ocean. Whether you’re in town for business or pleasure, you’ll find plenty of the latter at the Beacon.
Ahoy There! Fun at the Boat Show
First of all, if you’ll be attending the Boat Show Miami, we recommend that you book the CEO Boat Show Package that the Beacon South Beach offers. It’ll provide you with a free limo trip to and from this exposition. How’s that for arriving in comfort and style?
In 2016, the Boat Show’s primary location is the Miami Marine Stadium Park and Basin. With more than 3,000 boats and the latest nautical technologies on display, it’s a paradise for anyone who loves being out on the open water. Even if you’re not in the market for new watercraft, it can be a thrill just to imagine yourself piloting these boats. Experts from all of the world’s major boat manufacturers will be happy to answer your questions. At this five-day event, you can also take a class on boat repair, view a tug-of-war contest, shop for souvenirs and enjoy the food vendors’ delicacies.

Miami Beach: A Blast Day and Night
When you’re in Miami Beach, you can explore many points of interest near your Ocean Drive hotel. For instance, the neighborhood is packed with top-notch restaurants, bars, and nightclubs. In particular, the Ocean Drive area is a place to find excellent cocktails and Caribbean cuisine. Then, after dinner, you can dance until sunrise.
What’s more, you can check out the Miami Art Deco District, which is home to hundreds of elegant and historic buildings; after sundown, its neon lights are brilliant. By the way, its formal, less-used name is the Miami Beach Architectural District.
If you’re bringing children to this Miami Beach hotel, be aware that the Miami Seaquarium is less than 30 minutes away. Sprawling across 38 acres, this unique park stages animal shows and lets visitors have close encounters with dolphins, stingrays and other appealing creatures of the ocean.
Of course, South Beach is one of the world’s great seaside locales, and its beaches are the most stunning local attractions of all. Whether you like to surf or simply sit in the sunshine, you’ll be surrounded by the gorgeous scenery in every direction and some truly creative and carefree individuals. (Indeed, the region is known for its eclectic fashion sense.) To help you soak up those rays, the Beacon will even let you use one of its comfy beach chairs.
In short, whether your ideal Miami Beach trip involves a boat expo, a food and wine fair, pure relaxation or nonstop action, staying at the Beacon Hotel is a terrific way to experience the city.
