We don’t want to sell ourselves short, but Miami isn’t exactly known for being a wine-them-and-dine-them type of town. We’re more like a let-them-into-your-VIP-section, flex-your-bank-account kind of city. No shade! We really excel at that, and it must be working for some people.

But Miami does have a softer, more romantic side. That was made abundantly clear when we asked you, our readers, to share your favorite Miami first-date date spots. Of course, there were your typical joke responses (so. many. strip clubs!). Though it seems many of you put some real thought and sweet consideration into where to take a date when you want to woo them.
