Miami, the Everglades, and Naples

Caitlin and Brandon got married in Naples in June. I wanted to take a direct flight, so we flew from San Francisco to Miami and decided to take a few days to explore Miami, drive across the state in a Mustang convertible, and take an airboat in the Everglades.

We tried Cuban sandwiches and Cuban coffee (amazing!) at two restaurants in Miami before heading to Naples. We stayed at an Airbnb condo (on the 43rd floor) on the beach, explored the Wynwood Arts District and loved the murals, vibrant culture and especially Miami Mojito Company and Lagniappe.

The airboat ride was enjoyable and exciting, and we even got to hold a 2 year old alligator! Naples was beautiful, and we got to explore Marco Island as well. The wedding was a blast and I’m so excited for the new Mr. and Mrs. Manson!
