Wednesday, November 18, 2009 New Hot Site

", a new site from the Miami Herald, gives locals and visitors the best of Miami and South Florida, from dining and nightlife to shopping and attractions.

Like your personal concierge, or your friend who always knows just the right spot for every occasion, not only tells you about the latest local spots and events, but also when to go, what to do and how much it'll cost.

This means we don't just tell you about Sawgrass Mills, we share tips on when you can beat the crowds, how to get the primo bargains (want to know when the Coach outlet gets new stock?) and where to find parking on a Saturday afternoon.

On, you can find out where J.Lo and Ludacris go to eat and which Miracle Mile boutiques are worth a look. We'll also show you how to find a terrific empanada and how to navigate local airports, traffic and customs (like how to order a Cuban coffee.)" - website
