The secrets of Lincoln Road

What you did not know about Lincoln Road

Lincoln Road is a bit of an epitome of what's on South Beach - good restaurants, decks, shops and neon lights! But let's dive down the street that attracts locals and tourists from around the world.

A street in perpetual transformation

Originally, Lincoln Road was just a mangrove forest, as was the entire island of Miami Beach. It was Carl Fisher, Miami's pioneer, who began drying up this area for what would become Lincoln Road, immediately a central street in the city. Carl Fisher himself had established a real estate agency on this street, among other major brands of the time such as Saks Fifth Avenue, Cadillac or Packard.

In the 1950's, the famous Miami Beach architect Morris Lapidus was chosen to redesign Lincoln Road. He added gardens, fountains and an amphitheater in the style "MiMo" (Miami Modern Architecture) that made the reputation of Morris Lapidus. It was closed to traffic, making it one of the first pedestrian shopping streets in the country.

The city of Miami Beach has always made it a point of honor to ensure that the historic appeal of Miami Beach does not disappear. In 2006, the city signs to close traffic west of Lincoln Road, extending the pedestrian street to Alton Road. In 2010, the city hires renowned landscaper Raymond Jungle to create an urban oasis to Alton Road.

In 2015, the Lincoln Road Business Improvement District signed for a major renovation of the street and adjoining streets. James Corner, Field Operations, the company behind Heighline in New York City, was responsible for improving pedestrian access by widening sidewalks, adding public seating and creating outdoor spaces for the installation of works of art or for live performances.

Projects abound on Lincoln Road, which seems to be attracting more and more stores, restaurants and residences over the years and renovations.  

This year again, some elements will be restored, including adding greenery and more lighting. A food hall named "The Lincoln Eatery" is also expected soon.

The 5th most expensive street in the United States

With rent averaging $300 a year and SqFt in 2017, Lincoln Road is the most expensive street in Florida to establish a store, but it also ranks 5th across America after 5th Avenue in New York. York, Rodeo Drive in Los Angeles, Union Square in San Francisco and North Michigan Avenue in Chicago.

However, according to a report published by Cushman & Wakefield, rents decreased between 2016 and 2017, from $325 to $300, while rents for the 4 winners all stagnated or increased.

 

Thus, it seems that Lincoln Road still has some beautiful years to come, and even today, local and tourists flock there to discover the street shows, go shopping or have a drink.

The Florida Wine Route

Lovers of fine wines, embark on a road trip to discover the vineyards of Florida! A part of team Being of French origin, we respect the traditions by being amateurs of good wine and that is why we propose you today a road of the wines made in Florida, the opportunity to discover beautiful vineyards, to taste good wines and to see the country. Because Florida claims its status as the first vineyard in the United States, and that for decades, so why not enjoy!

Step 1: The East Coast

Our itinerary begins on the north-east coast of Florida, near St. Augustine, which can also be an opportunity to discover this charming little town. You will first discover the huge estate of San Sebastian Winery, where we produce up to 1250 crates of 12 bottles per day. One goes there especially for the adjoining jazz club, "The Cellar Upstairs", where you can enjoy sparkling wines or table wines, accompanied by cheeses.

After a short hike along the coast, you'll arrive at the Flagler Beachfront Winery, halfway between Saint Augustine and Daytona Beach, to enjoy fine wines and small dishes facing the sunset over the ocean.

Step 2: On the Orlando side

We then head to Orlando to discover the surrounding vineyards: Lakeridge Winery & Vineyards, Hutchinson Farm Winery and Cooper's Hawk Winery.

Lakeridge Winery & Vineyards is an ultra-modern 12-acre vineyard that can produce up to 2 million bottles! Its specialty is sparkling wine but there are also many grape varieties (Stover Suwannee, Mississippi Miss Blanc and others) that have often been awarded.

Hutchinson Farm Winery is a vineyard with a warm atmosphere. The owners, John and Sherry, welcome you to discover their wines and take care of you as if they have family!

The Cooper's Hawk Winery & Restaurants is a restaurant concept where every dish is associated with its a perfectly matched wine. The obejective? Make you spend a memorable moment.

Step 3: The West Side 

Direction Tampa or rather St Petersburg to discover the wines of West Florida. On the program: Murielle Winery, Florida's Orange Groves & Winery and Two Lions Winery.

With only 13 vats, Murielle Winery is a small estate where tastings are free. The plus: you can customize bottles to your name, to leave with a beautiful memory of your road trip wine!

Floridian Oranges, a must & #8230; declined even in the wine! At Florida Orange Groves & Winery, this former oranges company, we offer fruit-based wines other than grapes, from mangoes to grapefruit. An experience to discover!

The Two Lions Winery, an unpretentious place that has been filled! Here, we make beer and house wine and enjoy it in a warm atmosphere!

Step 4: The center

On the way back to Miami, we stop for a final stop at the Henscratch Farms Vineyard & Winery. Half closed half vineyard, here is an interesting project! You can not only buy country style wines, but also jams, fresh eggs or a supply of strawberries.

And now, the Florida wine route promises you many surprises, between ultra-modern vineyards and small family farms!
