5 Nov 2014 by Andy     

Well we all experienced the mental pain and torture of finding a parking space in the best place, if not the best place then something nearby or worst still somewhere at all. Then when you finally find something the space is too small or tight to squeeze into without scratching your car. Therefore, at Sixt we have created an easy to use feature with help from our friends at Parkme.com. Here you can see all the parking spots available in Miami, Fort Lauderdale, Tampa and Palm Beach and more to come! On this map you are in some cases also able to book a parking spot so you don’t have worry about scaling the streets to find that perfect place to leave your vehicle. Some of the best cities are worth exploring by foot, to find all the nooks and crannies the city has to offer. So let’s get the balling rolling, starting with Miami’s top things to do in the city once you have parked up.

Top things to do in Miami:

  1. Book some seats and prepare for an awesome basketball match at Miami Hurricanes.
  2. Try you aim at firing range, make it a competition amongst your peers.

Hosting Damenwiesn (Ladies’ Oktoberfest) and Kinderwiesn (Children’s Oktoberfest), Regine Sixt is able to provide guests with an entertaining day out whilst also raising money for her life-changing children’s charity, Drying Little Tears. Both events have been running since 1989 and they become more and more exciting and enjoyable as the years go on.

Drei, Zwei, Eins – Prost! Oktoberfest L.A.

24 Sep 2014 by Andy     
Filed under: Los Angeles     Tags: , , , , , ,

It’s that time of the year again, a traditional German Celebration happening every year from late September to early October. Many of you will think of these festival just a poor excuse to have a beer or wine with friends. However, the history of the Oktoberfest is a lot more interesting, and once you know it, you can start to appreciate the tradition a lot better. The Oktoberfest is not a typical commercial event popped up through sponsors or promotions. Instead it is a celebration of the late King Ludwig l and his marriage to Princess Therese of Saxe-Hidburghhausen (in 1810) who renowned the day by inviting the citizens of Munich to join in with the festivities on the fields in front of the city gates to mark the royal event.  Unfortunately, during the World War’s there were no festivities, and it would possibly been thought that the Royal Event would never take place again.

However, to our excitement and joy of the royal event, since 1950 the festival is officially back and even more popular attracting more than 6 million visitors worldwide. The festival opening consists of a parade running through the streets of Munich to the Theresienwiesn. At this parade the waitresses, barmen, landlords of the tents walk towards the festival entrances and into their tents before preparing for the twelve gun salute and the tapping of the first keg of Oktoberfest beer. In German we call this “O’zapft is!“ meaning  “It’s Tapped“ marking the official opening and serving of beer.
