    I have traveled the world to theaters and this is one of the most spectacularly colorful, ornate, sumptuous environments to see. Just sit in the seat, look at the midnight blue sky, the stars, the tho...  more »

    Cool theater. Great architecture. Waiting in line to get in while standing in Orlando heat for an hour plus is a sort of special nightmare that makes it worth avoiding at almost any cost. $6 for a bottled water when you finally get in gives you an idea of the snack prices and theme park customer service you can expect.

    I love this historical place. Where else can I get a tropical jungle in my theater? I saw Ira Glass here and feel shows like that are this places sweet spot. Not about the acoustics as much the ambiance.

Where to stay in Miami

Miami's South Beach boasts one of the largest collections of boutique hotels in the country. Though it can be quite expensive, staying in this area ensures proximity to the city's best shoreline, clubs, shopping, and restaurants, not to mention Art Deco buildings. Mid-Beach and downtown also make great places to stay, offering some superb apartment rentals and small hotels, though the neighborhoods are not as glamorous as South Beach. If you're traveling on a budget, avoid the high season during winter months. If money is no object, get a room with a view before it gets too hot along the famous stretch of Collins Avenue between 15th and 23rd Street.
