The sizzling sand and surf may be what Miami Beach is most famous for, but the city is truly an international hot spot of culture. Separate from the city of Miami, Miami Beach consists of three geographical regions: North Beach, Mid Beach, and South Beach -- the trendiest of the three. You can book Miami Beach hotels knowing that nightlife, dining, and entertainment options will surround you.
Out and About
Miami Beach is all about relaxing and indulging. Come with your best subtropical wardrobe to enjoy the beach during the day, and then dress for dinner, clubs, or theater in the evening. Live it up by renting a boat or a yacht or get into the water to kayak or snorkel. Don't worry if your warm-weather attire is lacking; just visit the local shops, which offer high-end styles. The Bal Harbour Shops have some of the best designer retail, while more affordable shopping is available on Lincoln Road.
Viewing the architecture of Miami Beach is another popular way to get to know the city. Opt for walking tours, or explore Millionaires Row to see some upscale real estate. You can live out your daydreams with a stay at one of the many swanky hotels in Miami Beach.
Eating and Drinking
Exploring Miami nightlife is a must-do on any trip to the area. Start by having dinner and cocktails at any of the area's hot dining establishments. Estiatorio Milos offers extremely fresh Mediterranean food; the restaurant receives multiple seafood deliveries daily. You can also experience liquid nitrogen creations and delicacies such as foie gras at The Bazaar. Both are close to South Beach hotels.
For more approachable food still on par with the high demands of Miami Beach clientele, opt for a pie at Lucali or tacos at Taquiza. But don't head back to your hotel after dinner; the nightlife scene really heats up after dark when those in the know head to clubs such as LIV, Bardot, and Vagabond.
