You know it's summer in Miami....
When everyone seems to have some sort of amazing "secret" spot for beach parking.
When you start thinking you can perhaps claim residency in Key West, you visit the islands so frequently.
When that crucial bastian of relaxation, Coral Gables' very own Venetian Pool, opens for revelers.
Venetian Pool, 2701 De Soto Boulevard, Coral Gables; 305-460-5306.
If you’re running out of space to put your avocados, because everyone keeps giving you the "tastiest 'cado you have ever had".
When restaurants and stores have misters outside... and no one judges you as you stand in front of them.
If your closet is totally overflowing with our favorite MIA wardrobe staple: The colorful and comfy linen pant.
If you find yourself checking the Weather Channel Hurricane Tracker more than you check your Facebook, Twitter, or email...put together. When seat covers become mandatory, especially if your car has black leather seats...yowch!
Because, finally! Tourists leave! It means us locals can get together and feel authentically Miamiamian.
