3. Four Seasons Miami
Sit down to a five-course tasting menu curated by Executive Chef Aaron Brooks at the contemporary and chic EDGE Steak & Bar. Then, take your love for a stroll down Four Seasons Miami’s magical Palm Grove walkway on the seventh floor. At the end of the path, beneath an arch of trees and a blanket of twinkling stars, bend the knee and pop the question at the foot of an illuminated lagoon. Or propose along the hotel’s famous glass skybridge, which offers stunning views of the Miami skyline on either side. Talk to the hotel staff beforehand to see how they can help make the gesture extra special and personalized.
