Sunny Isles Beach: Paradise is My Home!

I am a true Florida girl and have lived in Sunny Isles Beach my entire life. The city is just as beautiful as it sounds and the weather is even better! I have always loved warm weather and since Sunny Isles Beach is located in Miami-Dade County in Southern Florida the weather is always nice and warm. I love that the city is located right between the Atlantic Ocean and the Intracoastal. There is never any shortage of water views here that's for sure!

Living in Sunny Isles Beach there is unfortunately a lot of traffic due to the popularity of the Miami-Dade area for tourists, but there is also a lot to do in the area. Some of the best areas in Sunny Isle are probably the beautiful parks. I have always loved to walk in parks, there is something so relaxing and peaceful about it. My favorite park in the area is probably Greynolds Park. The park is very beautiful filled with lush tress and is super peaceful!

There are a number of restaurants and bars around Sunny Isles too. My favorite would definitely have to be Beach Bar at Newport Pier. There is dining right on the pier with spectacular water views. A definite must see if you are looking for a casual place to eat on the water.
