Shopping for a great Valentines Day gift can be as grueling as finding a parking space at Dadeland Mall the day after Thanksgiving. After searching for hours, you settle for whatever is available, like a heart-shape box of generic candy. Instead of buying your honey some bland bonbons, this weekend take a mini holiday to the Keys, where the Sweethearts Arts and Crafts Festival is taking place at Holiday Isle Resorts and Marina.
The festival, a yearly tradition at the resorts, features more than 40 booths of art and unique gifts. All items are handmade and include everything from floor art to gourmet chocolate. While youre there, you can also visit one of the many restaurants or the famous Tiki Bar, which claims to be the home of the original rumrunner drink.
Sat., Feb. 3, 10 a.m.-6 p.m.
