Marquesa Hotel

Immerse yourself in quintessential Key West charm at this boutique property, a collection of three historic homes, located just one block from Duval Street. Originally built in 1884, the hotel was formerly a rooming house, corner grocery store and haberdashery before becoming the upscale hotel that stands today. While preserving its classic Key West character, the Marquesa Hotel boasts modern amenities such as lush interior gardens, spa access and three pools. Rent a conch cruiser and bike around Old Town for a day of exploration, then make a reservation at the award-winning restaurant, Café Marquesa, on the first floor of the hotel for a night of culinary delights.

Formula 1 Miami Grand Prix

Verstappen, Hamilton and Perez bring the g-forces to the Miami International Autodrome, as the Hard Rock Stadium complex transforms into a high-stakes Formula 1 track in this third annual race to take place in Miami Gardens on May 3–5. Throughout the three-day event, international drivers (and the sole American Logan Sargeant) fly 57 laps around the 3.36-mile track at speeds of up to 200 miles per hour for a chance to claim the W on day three. The course snakes around the stadium and features experiential seating areas for fans, like an artificial marina with real glittering yachts. Watch from the grandstands to feel the energy of the cars flashing by or stay a few floors down in the air-conditioned villas for up-close views. Off-the-track action is nearly as exciting as the race itself with some of the biggest names in sports and entertainment mingling among the fans (think David Beckham, Tom Cruise, and Venus and Serena Williams). Art installations, live music from the likes of the Jonas Brothers and DJ sets keep the party vibes hitting on all cylinders throughout the weekend.
