If you ever travel to Miami Beach and want to find a nice spot for a leisurely walk (with or without your furry friend, preferably with) I recommend visiting the South Pointe Boardwalk. This boardwalk is located on the southern most tip of South Beach (1 Washington Avenue), in one direction it leads to the beach while in the other it will lead you to the shops on 5th street. While walking on this boardwalk you’ll be able to enjoy a number of things: a few of the local restaurants like  Smith & Wollensky, Monty’s, and Texas de Brazil, the beautiful marina equipped with a variety of boats (you can even go onto the dock and check out a few of them up close and personal, just be sure to enter through the guest gate) and also the off-leash dog park (which is why you should definitely bring your furry friend)!

If you’re a Miami Beach local then you know about the boardwalk and you love it and if you’re not then you should definitely visit this boardwalk if you’re ever in town. It is one of the many places on South Beach where you can see and be seen.

I personally love to stop by the boardwalk in the early mornings or at sunset so I can watch the sun rise or set. It’s amazing! I also enjoy taking my pooches on walks here as well since there are always pet parents with their furry friends passing through. The pups especially love coming here because of the off leash dog park that can be found. They’re always so excited once we start nearing the park and always meet one friend or another whom we see on a regular basis when visiting. Both pet parents and pups are so friendly and welcoming, it’s really more than just a community out here, it’s like a family!

If you decide not to bring your furry friend with you or if you don’t have one you can always just stroll the boardwalk either by walking, running, bicycling and/or skating. Just be aware of your surroundings so you don’t run or get anyone run over, this location is notorious for cyclists and traffic can be a little intense. And if you’re not into any of those things just stop by one of the many restaurants along the boardwalk and relax with a drink and some good food.

Oh and don’t forget to check out the amazing beach!

Have you visited the South Pointe Boardwalk before?

Hey Friends!

As most of you might know this December TLS hosted it’s second annual Hungry Bowl Pet Food drive! It was a great success and we were able to raise 277 lbs of pet food for Miami-Dade Animal Services. This year our efforts were combined with those of a local pet sitter in the area: Carolina Rodriguez over at PawSitting in Miami, and with her help we were able to reach and surpass our goal for 2013!

We’d like to give a HUGE thanks to all of our participating locations who allowed us to set up our donation boxes in their stores as well as all of you PET LOVERS who generously donated all sorts of food for either dogs, cats, puppies and/or kittens. We had a great variety of food that was donated and we are 99.9% sure that the pets of MDAS has an awesome Christmas feast this year!

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!
