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.

South Beach is beautiful, hip, and fun! Be sure to bring plenty of sunscreen and cash. Renting a chair and umbrella runs $20-$25.

Plenty of good restaurants. Cannot find a better people watching place. People walking cars cruising while just sitting on the wall or sipping a frozen drink. Plenty of nighttime entertainment

Had so much fun! The beach is beautiful! A great place to go for a girls trip. Really want to go back however South beach Miami is a little expensive and a lot of planning research has to be done to really enjoy your trip.
