Vegan Travel Notes: Must-Go Places in Miami

Vegan Travel Notes: Must-Go Places in Miami

By Tina Chau Feb 28, 2019

I fell in love with Miami six years ago when I first went there with my husband before we had kids. So it is good to be back and revisit familiar spots as well as explore the growing veg dining options they have here. It is an amazing place for vegans or anyone who loves sunshine, beaches and fresh exotic fruits. It always feels like there is not enough time to see and do the things I want in this city. But here are some of the places we visited that I would recommend if you are heading out to Miami.


7 Vegan Hotels on Our Radar

7 Vegan Hotels on Our Radar

By Mhegan Lee Feb 27, 2019

Here at Vegtravelbuddies, we are always on the lookout for the best places to stay when traveling. We just love the thought of finding different types of vegan, vegetarian, and veg-friendly accommodations. One of the downsides of staying in regular hotels is the limited options available on the breakfast buffet. So an all-vegan menu would be a definite plus. Most veg hotels, if not all, also lean towards sustainable and eco-conscious practices. We are seeing more veg facilities using vegan and eco-friendly products like shampoos, organic cotton bedding, solar energy for lighting fixtures, and more. Some even have their own farms and fruit orchards where guests can harvest fresh produce they can cook meals from.  With so many new accommodations now catering to veg travelers, vegan vacations promise to be even more enjoyable. We rounded up some of the vegan hotels on our radar that we would love to visit soon.

Our stay at an Earthship in New Mexico

By Tina Chau Jan 31, 2019

I’ve always wanted to stay at an earthship since I first learned about it from a friend a few years ago.  The idea of staying at a house that is entirely self-sufficient and made of natural and recycled materials fascinated me.  I love sustainability, homesteading and am already practicing on reducing my carbon footprint.  Thus, naturally, the idea of an off-grid dwelling appealed to me.  So we packed our bags and headed off to Taos, New Mexico.
