Bal Harbor is not famous for the beach but for the most upscale shopping center in the whole Miami Area.

This mall is very very nice and very very very expensive. The cheapest store there is Michael kors. We bought a bag and a pair of shoes. Restaurant there was great. Huge portions.

Well worth the cab ride from South Beach. Immaculate mall, service was excellent, choice of stores was next level - be prepared to sell your children for the material world.

Beach is beautiful and people are very friendly and respectful. The only problem now is the parking is pretty far. Hopefully by October they will get done with it.
