People watching is a great pastime in Miami's South Beach, which draws celebrities and beautiful people in skimpy swim attire to see and be seen. The wide and fine, white sand-covered beaches are popular spots for fashion photo shoots, so you're sure to see models. The area is known for its hip clubs and wild nightlife as well as numerous excellent restaurants.

The best place to be yourself. Let it all hang out and enjoy. Party, drink, celebrate, enjoy the culture, hit the beach, ride a bike, rent a scooter, enjoy the weather, women, man, work out, eat.... The list goes on and on.

Great place to spend the day. Huge beach, warm water! Restraunts available along the whole beach front. Citi bike rentals are fun as well as a way to make more progress along the walk.

South Beach is something you have to experience yourself. The atmosphere of this area is unique, with all the bars, hotels, the art deco district and "showing off". We really enjoyed staying here for a couple of days and sniffing on a different life style....More
