sum­mer is fast ap­proach­ing, and you know what that means: an en­tire sea­son of end­less fun in the Magic City sun—as if we didn’t al­ready have enough fun (or sun) year-round.

What bet­ter way to kick off such an ex­cit­ing time than with this very spe­cial dou­ble is­sue, and we’re thrilled to have ac­tress, author, so­cial-me­dia maven, and Pretty Lit­tle Liars star shay Mitchell grace the cover. With more than 16 mil­lion fol­low­ers on in­sta­gram alone, Mitchell is the epit­ome of the in­flu­en­tial mil­len­nial, and we’re hon­ored to be able to catch up with her.

While we’re on the topic of suc­cess­ful and in­spi­ra­tional women, this is­sue also marks the fourth edi­tion of our Women of in­flu­ence fea­ture, “Won­der Women.” The six ac­com­plished women we’ve in­cluded—from lead­ing busi­ness­women to phi­lan­thropists and top TV per­son­al­i­ties—are not only fierce forces; they’re also ful­fill­ing their dreams while men­tor­ing and mo­ti­vat­ing oth­ers along the way. We could not be more proud to share their suc­cess sto­ries with you.

in be­tween flip­ping through the pages of this is­sue, i en­cour­age you to make your way over to the phillip and pa­tri­cia Frost Mu­seum of sci­ence’s brand-new, highly an­tic­i­pated su­per­fa­cil­ity at Mu­seum park, in the heart of down­town Miami. For more than 65 years, the mu­seum has pro­vided both chil­dren and adults with ed­u­ca­tional pro­grams cou­pled with end­less amounts of fun. and now, start­ing on May 8, you can en­joy the long-awaited mul­ti­di­men­sional sci­en­tific in­sti­tu­tion’s ul­tra­mod­ern plan­e­tar­ium, in­no­va­tion cen­ter, ex­plo­ration cen­ter, and 500,000gal­lon shark-filled Gulf stream aquar­ium (and, of course, the beloved monthly laser shows will be back and bet­ter than ever).

so be­fore the tem­per­a­ture reaches 100 de­grees and our sched­ules be­come jam-packed with events (in­clud­ing the ea­gerly awaited swim Week, hit­ting our shores in july), be sure to go out and ex­plore all of the ex­cite­ment hap­pen­ing any and ev­ery day in our city this month. i know i sure will.

stay cool...
