Lifestyle’s Guide to Summer Fun

Lincoln EateryCatch a Wave: When it comes to beating the South Florida heat this summer, few attractions compare to Tidal Cove at JW Marriott Miami Turnberry Resort & Spa. The five-acre water park in Aventura, which just celebrated its second anniversary, satisfies thrill seekers and Lazy River lovers alike. On the spine-tingling side, don’t the miss almost-vertical Aqua Drop; the world’s first uphill waterslide, the Master Blaster; and, for wave-riding enthusiasts, the FlowRider Triple. There’s also a 4,000-square-foot kids pool and 25 luxury cabanas for rental.

The 24,000-square-foot food hall concept includes Khoffner Brewery (with handcrafted lagers, ales and stouts), the SistrunKollective (a retail boutique with merchandise by different artisans), and a dozen food vendors. In addition, Sistrunk shines the spotlight on a different local artist on the last Saturday of every month.
