Sip and Salsa Night at Mango’s in Miami 

After a divorce, it’s important to recognize that although one door is now closed, there is another one opening, full of possibility and freedom. To make that shift into writing a delicious new chapter, it helps to get out of your normal environment for a while and do a reset in a beautiful place surrounded by supportive friends.

Dance Lessons

Creative Pursuits

Expressing your creativity and making something is a wonderful way to renew the spirit – especially if it’s enjoyed with a glass of wine and laughs with your girlfriends. If you’re foodies, take a culinary class at the world-famous Biltmore Hotel, or try a Saturday night tasting of wines made from luscious tropical fruits, paired with Latin music and dancing, at Schnebly Redlands Winery, America’s southernmost winery. If you’re more on the crafty side, head to Candle Land in Miami’s Wynwood or Coral Gables neighborhoods, where you choose from a variety of vessels and fragrances to design your own aromatherapy candle. Art lovers can head to the Museum of Graffiti and take a Spray it Loud: Graffiti Class for Beginners on Saturdays.
