Beach personalised holiday postcard

 

With its effortlessly cool feel, vibrant culture and stunning architecture, it’s no surprise people are finally realising Miami is a contender in America’s great cities. At PostSnap, we’re big believers in there’s no better way to share your vacation photos than creating your own postcards with them. Our free app allows you to send your own postcards straight from your phone no matter where you are in the world. PostSnap means no stamps and no hunting for post boxes is needed so you can spend your time soaking up the city vibes.

 

We’ve rounded up the top five things to see on your vacation to Miami, and the absolute best shots to take for perfect postcards back home!

 

 

  • Everglades National Park

 

No trip to Miami is complete without a day trip to Everglades National Park. One of the most renowned locations for wildlife in the USA, the Everglades consists of 1.5 million acres of wetlands, marshes and mangrove forest. The entrance to the park at Homestead is an hour’s drive away and it’s only a short drive on to trails, lookouts and abundant wildlife. We recommend taking shots of walkways that stretch out into miles of greenery, views from observation towers (we recommend the Shark Valley Observation Tower) and of course the iconic airboats that are easily the best way to see the wildlife on offer. Bicycles can also be rented out: the flatness of the park makes it the perfect place for a bike ride.


Perfect For: Explorers & Wannabe David Attenbourghs

 

  1. Wynwood Walls 

Wynwood is one of Miami’s coolest neighbourhoods but it’s main attraction is the collection of street art and murals at Wynwood Walls. This outdoor art gallery showcases some of the best street art, and is the perfect way to spend a morning or afternoon admiring the art. Each wall has a unique design, and it’s a perfect spot for brightly coloured photos for your postcard. The gallery also has its own bar and kitchen, meaning it’s the perfect place to chill out and soak up the city vibes. The neighbourhood of Wynwood is also filled with cool food markets, eateries and art galleries, meaning there’s plenty to see and do. Send a postcard with shots of the street art for the perfect colourful message back home.


Perfect For: Hipsters and Art Enthusiasts.

 

  1. South Beach

A classic and an essential. Palm trees, quirky lifeguard houses and perfect white sand make this one of the most well known beaches in the world. Take photos of the beach to make everyone at home wish they were on vacay with you. South Beach is also home to dreamy art deco architecture that dominates the seafront. Essential shots include the multicolour lifeguard towers which stretch for miles up South Beach and shots of the Art Deco District. South Beach is also home to Miami’s vibrant nightlife; take shots of the art deco buildings glowing with neon and all the hustle and bustle of the city’s most iconic neighbourhood.


Perfect For: Sunworshippers & Nightowls

 

  1. Fairchild Tropical Gardens

 

Retreat to the quiet side of town by visiting the Fairchild Tropical Gardens. This expanse of tropical parkland is one of the best tropical gardens, complete with its own tram tours and a butterfly house. The collection of plants in this tropical garden is a beautiful retreat from the hustle and bustle of the city, and also offer an array of plants that make perfect postcards for gardeners back home and budding horticulturalists. Spend a morning here for a tropical retreat in nature not far away from the hub of the city.

 

Perfect For Plant Moms

 


  1. Little Havana

Cuba and the US’s history is long and complicated, but nowhere do the two merge so wonderfully than Little Havana, east of the city centre. This neighbourhood is home to the large Cuban diaspora and exiles , and is the perfect blend of American cool and Cuba’s latina feel. Stroll along Calle Ocho, Miami’s answer to the Hollywood Walk of Fame honouring Latina artists to see the area’s rich heritage or stop at the many food stalls and Restaurants for some of the best cuban food in the country. With the background of cigar smoke and latin music, this lively neighbourhood is a must see. Take photos of street food to make your family and friends’ mouth water or head to Domino Park for scenes of old men playing Dominos and smoking cigars.

 

Perfect for: Foodies and Budding Historians

Postcard Perfect: Top 5 Things To Capture On Camera In The Netherlands

The Netherlands is one of our favourite places in Europe. With gorgeous countryside, vibrant cities and of course, the iconic flower fields it’s a great place for a short break or a perfect stop on a European road trip. As The Netherlands is thriving in spring, we thought we’d introduce you to the top things to photograph while visiting this culture-filled country!

At PostSnap, we love sharing the wonderful places we’ve been! That’s why we have a postcard app, so you can send a postcard back home whilst on your travels. We’ve rounded up our must see sights in The Netherlands for you to photograph, turn into a postcard and send back home for all of your friends and family to see! These are our top choices for places to photograph while in the Netherlands for that perfect postcard! 

1. The Flower Fields

Tulips are as iconic to the Dutch as canals and clogs. Every spring, hundreds of fields bloom with tulips and other spring flora, turning the countryside into colourful strips of flowers. The Keukenhof Gardens near Lisse are the most famous, and opens for a short time to the public during the spring, but there are fields all over the country to see this pretty scenery. Whether you get up close to the flowers or stand back and take in the scenery, this spring activity is the top of our list for postcard perfect places in The Netherlands.

2. Koningsdag

Spring also sees the National Holiday of Koningsdag (Kings Day); where the Dutch throw parties in the streets, hunt for the latest bargains at flea markets and drink a lot of beer. Wearing bright orange (their national colour) is optional, but highly encouraged. If you can brave the crowds in the cities, there’s all sorts of sights to see on this lively occasion, such as boat parties and bustling markets. The oldest flea market is located in Waterlooplein, Amsterdam which is a perfect spot for scouting out quirky finds, books, furniture; pretty much everything you could ever want to find. At present, Koningsdag is on the 27th of April, meaning you have two days to get in the party mood.

@hortusamsterdam

Both Amsterdam and Leiden have botanical gardens that are open to the public, featuring beautiful and bizarre plants. They’re a perfect place for plant lovers to wander away from the hustle and bustle of the urban Netherlands. Amsterdam, while small offers a beautiful greenhouse and butterfly enclosure to marvel at, as well as a cafe, while Leiden’s is nestled in the university complex, home to a number of quirky and delightful museums. It’s also the oldest in the Netherlands, founded in 1590 with an impressive collection of Orchids and other endangered species!

  1. Baarle-Nassau / Baarle-Hertog

Cross off two countries at once with the unique town of Baarle-Nassau. This town is divided across The Netherlands and Belgium and is a unique destination and the easiest way to cross off two countries on your bucket list. Thanks to the Schengen Area, the town is completely free to wander around despite the zig-zagging international border that’s clearly marked with crosses on the road (and in some cases, lines through the middle of shops). The town is a quirky coincidence that predates national borders and is something a little odd to see if you’re wanting to see something a little different from The Netherlands.

  1. Hoge Veluwe National Park

We all know the iconic Van Gogh museum in Amsterdam, but did you know there’s a museum with a substantial collection of his work in the middle of a National Park? Hoge Veluwe is The Netherland’s largest natural park, perfect for people who really want to avoid the hustle and bustle of Dutch city life. The park is not only filled with wildlife, but the Kröller-Müller Museum boasts a sculpture park and the second largest collection of Van Gogh paintings in the world. The park also has free to use bikes, making it an ideal place for exploring!
