I got a little more information on the trip. The conference is being held at a Miami Beach beachfront hotel.
After reading what I could find on restrictions of CC, the one that raises a question is the restriction on places that sell alcohol for consumption on premises. Assuming that the hotel has a bar, does the restriction apply to the entire hotel or just the bar? Also, if they serve alcohol on the beach, then would the restriction apply to the beach area?
Please excuse my ignorance, I have never been to Florida nor to any beach resort, so all I have for understanding of what such a resort is like is what I have read or seen on TV.
