Time is running out before school starts.

My daughter and I spent an unforgettable day at Mandarin Oriental Spa.

My niece spent her bachelorette weekend at Shore Club and had her first massage @ Spa at Shore Club. She is still talking about it in her hometown of Boston.

The Biltmore Hotel Country Club Ballroom was filled with high energy for our Visitor and Tourism Industry Luncheon on June 26th. With over 250 in attendance, Chris Thompson, President and Chief Executive Officer of VISIT FLORIDA expressed appreciation to the audience for their support in Tallahassee to sustain the agency as it exists and enable them to continue their hard work promoting our state locally, nationally and internationally. A very special thanks to our partners at the GMCVB, The Biltmore Hotel and VISIT FLORIDA for an outstanding turn-out.

The delicious lunch began with a Vichyssoise and Watermelon, Tomato and Feta Salad and ended with a Fig Bottom Panna Cotta with Orange Gelee. Hope you all received your fabulous Miami Magazine upon departing the event!
