As Seen in Quarantine

As much of the country was on strict safer-at-home orders, Miamians got creative with how to pass the time and make the best of a challenging situation. From balcony parties to caravan parades, social distancing took center stage as we were inspired to live life to the fullest during COVID.

Virtual World

With advances in technology and corporate attitudes increasingly accepting of telecommuting, more people will be working from home than ever. This year, what is being dubbed as “the world’s largest social experiment” in the first and second quarter has fast-tracked this trend toward digital connectivity, delivery of services and a new “business as usual.”

Island Dreaming

There is no shortage of watery adventures to be had in the BVI — year-round perfect weather, world-class accommodations, friendly locals and memories galore. What are you waiting for? The vacation of a lifetime awaits.
