Dylan’s Candy Bar
801 Lincoln Road
Confession: I have a sweet tooth. Hell, it’s hard for me to walk by Dylan’s Candy Bar at the Lincoln Road Mall without stopping in and buying a big assortment of candy. In fact, when I’m here in Miami, I’ll usually head to Dylan’s first, often before checking into the hotel. But, so what? This Willy Wonka–inspired wonderland has it all, from sweet chocolate to mouth-puckering sour candy in every flavor imaginable. If you’re feeling tired, go for the “energy-packed” gummy bears (they really exist). Or if it’s sugar-free candy you crave, this store has a large, fun selection of healthier gummies as well. Treat yourself. You deserve it!

Founded in 1861 in New York, Kiehl’s began as an apothecary. But when it was taken over by Aaron Morse, a World War II pilot, the brand began expanding and became popular for its skincare lines. Today, the brand still uses nature and science to create one-of-a-kind products. The brand’s Rosa Arctica cream uses Haberlea Rhodopensis, also known as the “Regeneration Flower, which is able to survive up to 31 months of extreme dryness, and when proper moisture conditions are restored, it returns to life within hours. Besides these great skincare products, Kiehl’s is known for its generous philanthropic activities.

There are many reasons to visit Lacoste’s attractive Lincoln Road boutique: stock up on piqué polos in every color, test the latest fragrances, check out the new Fashion Show collection, try on some fresh sneakers, see what the Lacoste Sport section has to offer. But alternatively—if faced, say, with a sudden urge to take a trip to the beach—you can also find neat swimwear and beach towels, along with a colorful selection of bags to pack everything you may want to bring along for your trip (we like the Concept Zip Fantasie Vertical Tote Bag and the Chantaco Perforated Piqué Bag).

178 NE 39th Street (Design District) Emilio Pucci began showing his collections to international press and buyers in 1951. His designs featured sensual, free-flowing lines that followed the natural curves of the body—elegant clothing that took women from day to evening, from jets to seaside cocktail parties, perfectly complementing the lifestyle of the high-rolling, jetset crowd. The collections had the allure of couture but were shed of the impracticality and cost, heralding the novel concept of designer ready-to-wear, which had a cascade effect throughout the fashion industry. The brands gels well with the upbeat culture of Miami.
