Love the area but it's a bit pricey for what you get. Parking is horrible because all the city parking or metered paring is taken over by independent Valet's charging A LOT even if you're only going to be an hour or so. There is also quite a bit of construction going on so be prepared to dodge the road... More

Besides the fabulous Art Deco vibe, there as scads of places to eat, drink and rent a Segway, not neccasarily in that order, there many places to part with your cash. Named designers and small boutique stores abound. Specialty cigar stores, beach supplies and novelty souvenir shops are plentiful. Something for all to enjoy.

I have been to South Beach many times. I suggest DO NOT Drive, it is very, very congested. But there are lots of restaurants and they all are hawking for your business. All will offer you a discount. To crowded for me.

Miami South Beach is the best beach I have been to. Miami has something really special to offer that I have never felt in another city before. South beach combines vintage retro history with uber modern and glamours luxury. It combines old and new perfectly. The best part is the beach. Its really warm seas and shallow waters. I visited...
