I am informed that it can get quite cold in Miami, but on both occasions I have been in the city, I cannot see how. I am pretty sure I nearly melted one day.
The sheer humidity and heat combined has made it feel uncomfortably hotter than any other place I have been to. I was staying in Coral Gables, near the Key of Biscayne, so not in the very heart of Miami compared to say South Beach or Downtown.
From my hotel on Franklin Avenue, I headed east towards the Keys along Main highway and McFarlane road where I was met the the view below. The distance to here was approx 1.2km.

The loop home with the wind at my back was like something out of a dream! I was able to cruise the 5.7 miles back to the hotel, take in a beautiful ice bath before stepping back out into the sauna that is a typical Miami morning for a well deserved Dunkin' Donuts!
