Sights & Soul: Garden Getaway With Blige, Thicke, more

Tired of the cold, ice, snow, and rising heating bills ? The prospect of jetting off to a sunny locale with warmth, beaches and soulful music probably sounds good right about now. Luckily for you, what you just read could be a reality if you start planning now.

Miami Gardens, Florida is gearing up for what is poised to be one of the best concert series of the year — Jazz In The Gardens!

Packed with a soulful lineup that should make you run out and tell your friends, husband, girlfriend or whoever you won’t mind traveling with, Jazz In The Gardens will feature performances from the Queen of Hip Hop/Soul Mary J. Blige, Robin Thicke, John Legend, Melanie Fiona, K’Jon, Teena Marie, and more!

Now you might be concerned, as would we, about the cost of jetting off to Miami. As in year’s past, this two day concert series (March 20 & 21, 2010) will be affordable, with tickets topping off at $145 (Prime Reserve Level) for both days.

Hosted by Tom Joyner, Jazz in the Gardens is, beyond the music, in the perfect location for music lovers, adults looking for a break from the kids and perhaps those of you looking for a way to rekindle that spark in your relationship. Beyond the beaches and attractions all too common when you think of Miami, there are a host of tours, attractions and shopping venues that will help in making the weekend memorable.

Because there is nothing like taking a break near the water, why not venture off on the water with a day cruise. Not what you might have imagined ten or twenty years ago, cruises, including Miami’s Island Queen, are packed with options including sightseeing and weekend dance cruises.

For more information on local attractions, dining, shopping, and other things to do, visit, the official website of the Greater Miami Conventions and Visitors Bureau.

Now getting back to Jazz In The Gardens… tickets are selling fast so it is in your best interest to secure your spot now. For more information and to purchase tickets visit
