Day 7 was such an awesome day!

We woke up with the sun, and the girls watched the ocean turn from a deep nighttime blue to a bright tropical aqua color while wrapped in our travel partner, Trump International Beach Resort robes. 


Pete ran down to the lobby and brought us back up some of their signature coffee, and we sipped it on our balcony while the girls got ready… we take about 1/4 of the time that they do. I remember being slow to get ready in the morning as a teen too!


Breakfast was at Neomi’s again, and it was just as fabulous as the day before!

We were surprised with vegan banana smoothies, a beautiful fresh tropical fruit platter, and vegan waffles!

After breakfast, Pete and I took videos and pictures to share later before the rest of the guests were ready to take over the resort. 


I discovered this little spot right on the beach. How perfect is it for lounging and reading a good book?!beach trump international beach resort miami

Soon after, our driver was there to take us on a fun outing to the Miami Auto Museum, The Dezer Collection.

This is something that needs to be on your “must do” list when you visit Miami. 

I wasn’t super excited to go and I agreed because Pete loves cars, but about 5 seconds after we got there we were all saying things like “WOW”, “OH MY”, and “COME QUICK, YOU HAVE TO SEE THIS”!

Emmy was fascinated by these and then she quickly discovered all the cars…


I’m not going to be able to share everything because it would take me months and 1,000’s of posts to show everything, but Pete added a bunch of it to our video located at the bottom.

The museum is split up into two parts, Hollywood and Classics. They have exhibits for almost every movie and TV show you can imagine in Hollywood. In Classics, they have some really special cars and you can see the history and progression of autos, bikes, etc.

As I walked through, I kept thinking how I wish my dad was with us on this trip. He loves cars and would really appreciate it…..especially since I’m not a big car person, and I absolutely loved it. We spent over an hour here, but to really see it all you need to block off 3 hours. They also have a really cute diner in the Hollywood building that would be really fun to eat at!

Back at Trump Miami it was time to pack up and travel to our next stop, Naples.

It was very hard to leave this view.

A little over two hours later, we were on the other side of Florida on the Gulf Of Mexico at travel partner, Naples Bay Resort.

We checked into our two bedroom suite and immediately felt a calmness rush over us because of this amazing balcony!


And these views…

We had cookies for the girls and wine for Pete and I waiting for us. The wine was from Monterey, CA… another one of our favorite places to visit…so that felt like a sign of what was to come.

We had an early dinner and then an early bedtime followed shortly after. It’s a good thing we did… because the next day was full of adventure! 

Have you been to Naples?

  • What a fun tour. We are in FL every year, but stick to Disney so I would love to see more of the state.

  • Your family does so much traveling to such gorgeous places! I want to start doing more traveling with my family. Those are some unique, lifelong memories.

  • This looks like a really nice resort. I will have to go down down south and check out the Miami auto museum. I am a car nut.

  • I bet seeing the Batman car was pretty cool! It has been a couple of years since I have been to the beach! It looks so pretty and relaxing! I can’t wait until I can go again!

  • I love the little surprises left for you throughout the day, especially since they took your dietary needs into consideration. The auto museum would be a dream come true for my husband and son!

  • They definitely have some great spots for relaxation. Checking out the Miami Auto Museum would be amazing too. Those cars are awesome!

  • The auto museaum looks awesome! I can’t get over that view. I can’t wait for this weekend as I head to the UP part of Michigan to the lake house! Water, water, water! Might be chilly, but still…lol

  • That was an awesome breakfast, indeed. The tour must have been amazing and I’m sure the kids had a lot of fun too. I would also have a hard time saying goodbye to a view as beautiful as that!

  • This is one experience you and your family would treasure forever. What a posh hotel that is, and I love that there are so many activities to do in and out of the hotel. The food looks superb! I am sitting here wondering how much it would cost me to take my family there.

  • By far these are the best views I’ve seen since Day 1! Or maybe I was just too deeply attached to the beauty of that high rise sight. I wish I could take that Batmobile and drive endlessly around there.

  • Wow, you guys are really getting out there!
    My brother-in-law visited Naples a number of times and really likes it there.
    I think it is great that you are getting in this many trips while your family is still young – I hope they appreciate it.

  • Looks like you all had a fabulous vacation Heather! I am envious! In a few months it’ll be summer and I can hardly wait! I hope we have a fun time too just like what your family experienced!

  • What an amazing trip indeed. Looks like you guys are truly having fun and enjoying it a lot!

  • Your trip just keeps getting better and better. Sounds like you had a great time. And the weather was gorgeous

  • The pool & views are just breathtaking. The Scooby Doo-lover in me is freaking out that you got to see the Mystery Machine. So cool!

  • Your family looks wonderful. I hope I could also bring my family there. My kids are surely going to love the cars and the beach.

  • Your pictures are always exciting & I can see you all are having a wonderful time on this awesome trip. As of I know, Miami is an amazing vacation spot when you are with family & I am sure you are making the best use of it.

  • I’d love to see those cars too. Everything looks great, and I’d def. enjoy that little slice of beach.

  • You take the most amazing pictures! How beautiful you were able to take a 7 day FL tour…I have some travel goals now!

  • This indeed looks like a fantastic time. I love the lounge area you found on the beach. It looks so peaceful and comfy. The Scooby Doo Van would be so awesome to see in person. Thanks for sharing your experience.
