Just Back From
Indagare’s Peter Schlesinger was working remotely from Miami Beach for all of January. Here, he shares what it’s like on the ground in South Florida right now.In the wintertime, South Florida is one of the only U.S. destinations warm enough for real, bonafide beach time. And this year, it’s become a popular escape for Americans looking for sun and sand, plus comfortable outdoor dining options, without having to leave the country. As one such sun-seeker myself, I worked remotely in Miami Beach for the month of January. During that time, Indagare fielded dozens of requests for potential trips here, with many hopeful travelers sharing their concerns about safety. Here are my Covid travel takeaways from my month in and around Miami.Contact Indagare or your Trip Designer to discuss trip possibilities to Miami or Palm Beach.

In Palm Beach, Renato’s and Café Boulud were both exceptional, as was Osaka, a new nikkei spot in Miami’s Brickell neighborhood. Each of these restaurants had outside tables spaced far enough apart (six feet or more) that, even with a full house, I felt totally comfortable.
Miami Dade County has multiple outdoor testing sites, where anyone can receive complimentary PCR and rapid tests as long as they register. For my own sense of ease, after my fourth day after flying to Miami I went to the testing location by the Miami Beach Convention Center on 17th Street, where I waited for under 20 minutes to receive both tests. Results for the PCR test came back within 36 hours.
