Letter from the Editor
Of Land, Sea & Me
M y family says I took my first step on
the beach, and ever since, it seems
I never quite stopped my trek along
the shore. As a kid, I’d walk along the
sand for miles, exploring. In my teenage years, I
spent my beachside adventures blowing off some
steam from all that teen angst (and homework).
In college, I’d pass the days by the sea working on
my tan in between classes and late-night crams.
Today, I go mostly to swim and run, and to spend
time with family and friends in the welcomed
shade of palm trees or an oversized umbrella.
No matter which direction my life has gone, the
ocean has always been part of it. This past year I
spent a lot of time on the shores of Crandon Park
and Bill Baggs in between research trips and
interviews for the 2011 Annual Guide you hold
in your hands. Although the legwork is immense,
so is the passion we put into this project each
year. Outside of Key Biscayne options, our editors
scoured the surrounding areas to introduce you to
some of our favorite people, places and pastimes
from Downtown Miami to Brickell, Coconut
Grove, Coral Gables, South Miami, Miami Beach,
Midtown and the Design District. We understand
your social calendar takes you outside of the Key
from time to time and we want to make sure your
experiences off the island are as pleasurable as
the ones on. Feel free to take this guide with you
wherever you go, jot notes on it, rip out relevant
pages, keep it on your coffeetable — we tried to
make it as timeless as possible so it’s useful all
year long. If you think we missed something, or
want to make suggestions for the 2012 Annual
Guide, please get in touch with me at Editor@
KeyBiscayneMag.com. After all, this is your guide.
Have fun flipping through. And enjoy 2011!
