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.

Vacation weekend

Lots of restaurants and interesting places to go and view, however it is expensive, you have to consider also the parking, which is expensive too (flat rates between USD20 and 40)

A buzzing and sparkling Beach Boulevard with (expensive) bars and restaurants. The beach and park is great. If you are on vacation around Miami, you simply have to go there, preferably late afternoon for the boulevard. The beach of course the whole day. The area is a melting pot of young and older people and "figures" who try to do... More

There are a lot of restaurants, shopping options, and sightseeing available for all ages. The biggest attraction, however, is the beach itself. The warm turquoise waters of South Beach is what makes it... More

Everyone should go to South Beach at least once. It has a colorful look and spirit and you can sample cuisine from all over the Caribbean and South America. The architecture is stunning.

We were trying to walk down Ocean Drive to see what they had but instead we were harassed by EVERY restaurant. Even when you say no thank you they kept harassing you and adding to the fire. Not a very good first impression to South Beach🙁
