Art Basel in Miami Beach 2013
Waiting until the last second to book a hotel for Art Basel in Miami Beach 2013 will cost you…a lot! Last year weekend rates for some hotels in Miami Beach started at $1,209 and went all the way up to $9,500 a night. For those of us who attend Art Basel to immerse ourselves in art, take in the special exhibitions, and wonder from gallery to gallery paying $1,000s for a weekend stay is not ideal. Getting an early start on accommodations will save you a buck or two and will let you focus on this dynamic cultural event. Last year the event attracted over 50,000 international visitors so don’t wait too long. The dates for Art Basel in Miami Beach this year are December 5-8, 2013. For more information about attending Art Basel visit the Art Basel Miami Beach official website. It truly is a can’t miss event and among the best art exhibition in North America.
