See & Do
Miami International Airport

Tony arrives at the airport. You can take a super shuttle into the city for $19 or taxi for $32 (and be at the beach in less than 30 minutes).

1640 NW 42nd Ave, Miami, FL 33126

The Raleigh Hotel

The Raleigh offers a great bar, old-school interior and a nice pool. The Raleigh feels like home to Tony. Tony recommends the Raleigh Beachfront. "Another great place besides the pool. Can also take out jet skis."

1775 Collins Ave, Miami Beach, FL 33139

Tony Also Recommends: Biltmore Hotel

"If you want huge, strange and wonderful -- the Biltmore is a Spanish-style estate, with old Floridian glamour and a 23,000-square-foot swimming pool."

1200 Anastasia Ave, Coral Gables, FL 33134

La Perrada De Edgar

This eatery offers 21 different takes on the hot dog. Tony gets a "Colombian" -- cheese, onion, pink sauce (mayo and ketchup), house sauce, mustard and potato sticks. Tony also has the "Edgar Special."

6976 Collins Ave, Miami Beach, FL 33141

Tony Also Recommends: Las Olas Cafe

"This place is good for more traditional Cuban cuisine. It's cash only, popular with the locals, and the staff speaks mostly Spanish."

644 6th St, Miami Beach, FL 33139-8602

Tony Also Recommends: El Palacio de los Jugos

"El Palacio is literally a palace of juices and jumble of different stands all under one roof. Offerings include fried plantains, Cuban rice and beans, chicharones, roast pork sandwich, etc."

5721 W Flagler St, Miami, FL 33144

See & Do
Love Hate Tattoo Studio (Home to Miami Ink Artist)

Master tattoo artist Chris Garver has "inked" Tony 2 previous times so it's become a Miami ritual. Tony gets another tattoo on his forearm.

1360 Washington Ave, Miami Beach, FL 33139

Mac's Club Deuce

Tony and Chris Garver go to happy hour at one of the last dive bars in South Beach. This bar is perfect for late afternoons or late nights. Mac's was also the first place Tony ever went to the first time he was in Miami.

222 14th St, Miami Beach, FL 33139
