Leave Your Luxury Condos and Homes behind and Celebrate Halloween–Miami Beach Style!

Miami Beach Halloween

Leave Your Luxury Condos and Homes Behind and Celebrate Halloween Miami Beach StyleOkay, so there’s no chill in the air, no leaves falling, and no howling wind whipping through the trees (not that we don’t get a few of those a little earlier in the year). But here in the Miami Beach area, we don’t need the traditional trappings of fall to do Halloween right.

In fact, despite the absence of a layer of ice on our pumpkin patches, dare I say we do Halloween better than anywhere else in the country?

Miami Beach Halloween

Here’s a brief rundown of how to celebrate the spooky season in style.

Since you’ll likely be spending the night pigging out on treats (and not necessarily the candy variety), have a healthy Halloween morning by running in the Miami Beach Halloween Half Marathon! The race not only gives you a head start on burning the day’s calories, but it also allows you to score some great prizes for running in costume.

If you have kids, swing by the Miami Beach Botanical Gardens. They offer a few hours of pumpkin carving and other seasonal arts and crafts for Halloween Family Day. Or, head south to the MetroZoo for the annual MetroBoo! Party at the zoo.

Of course, after hours is when the holiday really heats up, and nowhere more so than in South Beach. Halloween in SoBe isn’t about trick or treating – it’s more about treats for the over-21 set. At the Shore Club, there’s the official Playboy Halloween Party, with a bevy of bunnies and a sprinkling of centerfolds. While for those who prefer their adult entertainment to be scary rather than sexy, Mansion will host the release party for the latest “Saw” movie all weekend long at the House of Jigsaw Halloween Weekend. Or if theme parties are more your thing, pull out your best 1920s attire for Raleigh’s speakeasy-themed Cat’s Meow party.

Of course, all this partying may have a downside. With no one home to pass out candy to the trick-or-treaters, don’t be surprised if a lot of prime South Beach real estate gets egged on Saturday night! Contact me here to discuss local real estate.
