While some grinches like to complain about summer in Miami, we like to think it’s one of the most underrated seasons in the Magic City. Sure, it gets hot, but it’s nothing the beach and a few light showers can cure. It’s also a mecca for discounts. Not only will you be getting a better rate on your WPH hotel room, you’ll also be finding discounts galore around Miami Beach. Here are our picks for what to do this summer in Miami. 


Load up your plate @ Miami Spice

Mark your calendars. One of our favorite annual events is coming up this August. It’s Miami Spice. Your excuse to indulge in the Magic City’s best restaurants at a fraction of their normal price. Come hungry because with tasting menus starting at just $39, you’ll probably want more


Pamper yourself during Miami Spa Month

Another big perk of being in Miami in the summer is Miami Spa Month. Here you can visit the top spas in the city, for about half the regular price. Think Aqualina, Lapis, Setai and more. So go ahead and start planning which spa treatment (or two) you’ll pick. Here’s a list of the participating spas this year.


Go to the Beach

With all the things to do in Miami, sometimes you can forget that there is some gorgeous stretch of beach to visit, which becomes a lifesaver come summertime. We’re not gonna lie. It gets hot during the Miami summers. The only way to survive is to get to the beach. Luckily we’re just a few blocks away from the 11th street entrance to Lummus Park.


Hit the Summer Sales 

As you probably know, summer shopping comes with a plethora of sales. And South Beach is rolling in the boutiques. From high-end shops like The Webster to long-time favorites at Lincoln Road Mall, you’re sure to find something to suit your fancy in SoBe.


Refresh yourself with a Swizzle

It’s not hard to work up a sweat in the summer heat. So once you’ve finished your daily outing in SoBe, head back to the hotel for a swizzle, our signature Caribbean drink, by the WPH pool. With crushed ice and numerous flavors and alcohols to choose from, you’ll probably want to order two. Make sure to check for the daily $7 Swizzle Specials before 7 p.m.
