"I love the Museum of Science. It's connected to the planetarium, which has educational shows every day and great laser shows on Friday nights. The Miami Seaquarium in Virginia Key does the shows with the whales, the dolphins, and the seals. Vizcaya Museum and Gardens is gorgeous, a favorite place for weddings. It used to be a mansion, the winter home for the International Harvester company founder. Now it's a National Historic Landmark. Its gardens are filled with flowers, and the house is filled with great art. Fairchild Tropical Garden is almost 100 acres of tropical plants and trees and birds, alligators, lizards, and more. My favorite museums are the Bass Museum of Art, Miami Art Museum, and Museum of Contemporary Art in North Miami."

"The Venetian Pool in Coral Gables is the most beautiful swimming pool in the world. It was made from coral rock in 1923, and has coral caves and waterfalls. It's in the National Register of Historic Places. They refill it every day with fresh water. It's a great place to swim."

"Nemo on South Beach has the best lunch menu in town. It's new American. The two best dishes are the wok-charred salmon and the crispy prawn salad. Carpaccio at Bal Harbour Shops, one of Miami's most expensive shopping malls, is known for its salads."

My favorite park is Kennedy Park, which backs onto a beautiful bay in Coconut Grove. They've gated a huge area for dogs to play in so the dogs don't have access to the road. They also put water out for the dogs. Everybody takes their dogs there. I take my golden retriever, Grammy, which my record company gave me as a gift when I won the Grammy in 1996. Grammy loves Kennedy Park. There are workout stations along the pathway, so you can walk your dog and work out at the same time. There's also Tropical Park, which is a huge park on Bird Road with softball fields, tennis courts, soccer fields, everything."
