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.

After having a most memorable dinner at Larios on the Beach. What better way to finish the evening that watching the sun go down with the women you love. So what if she is turning 50! I love her for another 50.

Very accommodating. Provided sunscreen. Enjoyed my short visit with plenty of action surrounding me-especially the boat driven digital billboard.
