Miami Beach Seeks to Phase out Plastic

Plastic remains a major problem not only in South Florida, but also around the world. As efforts continue to try and tackle the environmental hazard, Miami Beach has launched its own initiative aimed at reducing the problem that often plagues the ocean.
Appropriately dubbed Plastic Free Miami Beach, the initiative seeks to cut down on the reliance to use plastic items that have a one-time use, such as straws for instance. One way to do that is to transition from plastic straws to paper straws. Other paper-based or non plastic products are also being proposed to cut down the usage of items like styrofoam carryout containers.
The initiative meeting was aimed largely at encouraging businesses to join the cause which seems it is being embraced with open arms. In fact, the popular spirits company Bacardi has already expressed its support.
Miami Beach already bans certain products, but this new initiative may go a long way in making the city a greener place while making Mother Nature happy.

Have You Been to the Faena Bazaar?

Lincoln Road may be the shopping destination of Miami Beach, but the city isn’t really known for its retail. That all changed in 2018 with the debut of the Faena Bazaar, one of the latest additions to the growing Faena District. Named after hotelier Alan Faena, the Faena District currently features a pair of hotels, residences, various cultural restaurants, and of course, plenty of highly regarded restaurants.
With the Faena Bazaar, visitors can shop at several internationally recognized boutiques such as luxury eyewear store Linda Farrow, the Spain-made shoes of Pedro Garcia, and Hartel, a collection of menswear. While it showcases lots of different shopping venues, Faena Bazaar also has a gallery with various exhibitions on the floors below the shops. If that’s not enough, the rooftop is home to the Goldish Oasis, a place to enjoy sound healing and sip organic juices. When you need to take a load off after some retail therapy, this is the place to go.
Faena Bazaar is located at 3400 Collins Avenue.

Ultra Returns with Some Ridesharing Restrictions

Ultra is moving from its longtime home of Bayfront Park to Virginia Key for the first time this weekend. More than 50,000 people are expected to show up to the three-day festival, and city officials are working hard to ensure that traffic on the Rickenbacker Causeway flows smoothly.
For those that may not know, the Rickenbacker Causeway is the one road that connects the Miami mainland to Virginia Key. To reduce the chances of traffic snarls, ridesharing services such as Lyft and Uber have made it known that passengers will not be picked up at Virginia Key during the Ultra Musical Festival. For anyone that intends to use ridesharing, they will need to ride one of the three shuttles transporting them to the following locations: Vizcaya Museum & Gardens, the former home of the Miami Herald near Omni, or the American Airlines Arena. It is only at these locations that people can be picked up via Uber or Lyft.
Although Uber and Lyft have made their pickup policy clear, passengers can still be dropped off at Virginia Key. While Uber won’t have any drop-off restrictions, Lyft will cease drop-offs beginning at 10:30 pm until 6 am. Residents of Key Biscayne residents can also request vehicles from either service.

Miami Beach’s Spring Break Changes Remain in Effect This Weekend

For those of you that visited Miami Beach this past weekend, you may have noticed some changes in regards to the roads and traffic patterns. As a means of tackling the massive numbers of college students that visit the barrier island for spring break, the city has some changes in place to keep things orderly.
As was the case last weekend, this weekend visitors will notice some closures. For starters, Ocean Drive between 5th and 12th Streets will be closed after a certain time. The MacArthur and Julia Tuttle Causeway will only have a pair of lanes moving, so you may be better off taking advantage of either the 79th Street Causeway or the Venetian Causeway.
For those that are planning on using scooters to get around, the city is now able to disable scooters to reduce the chances of any reckless scooter drivers. On an unrelated note: also remember that certain roads around the city will be accessible only to residents of Miami Beach or employees of businesses on the barrier island.

Miami Beach’s Rules for Spring Break

Will you be heading to Miami Beach for spring break? Welcome! The barrier island is one of the best places to spend spring break. If you haven’t read up on the latest rules about visiting the beach, there are a couple of things you may wish to be aware of.
For starters, drinking alcohol on the beach is prohibited. Visitors that are planning to spend the day sunbathing should also be aware that tents, coolers, tables, and inflatable devices are also off-limits and will not be allowed on the beach. Depending on the section, the city may also enforce occupancy limits. Should these areas reach their capacity, visitors will not be allowed to enter that area.
In the past, Miami Beach has closed off Ocean Drive to deal with traffic and improve pedestrian safety. This year is no exception. During peak hours, the popular roadway may be closed entirely or a portion of it may be closed between 12thand 5thStreet. There will also be limits on the streets visitors can access, which may be open only to Miami Beach residents or employees and patrons of local businesses.
