Owner description: 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”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

Most people drive a long way south to get to a nice beach but you have to go no farther than just south beach. If you stay between 15th and 17th you can enjoy a pleasant afternoon walking on Lincoln Rd.

Loved walking and looking at the art deco hotels, shops, theaters, etc. and the sidewalk dining and bars were excellent.

“SoBe - Great but overpriced”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2012

South Beach or SoBe became an internationally famous beach, so it's really crowded, bars, restaurants and shops are really expensive (we payed $90 for 4 drinks in a bar/lounge- cover included). The beach is incredibly beautiful but there're a lot obnoxious people around there, so I didn't enjoy much because I prefer a more quiet type of beach. Beware of parking spots, really hard to get a spot in the streets, and valets charge you $20+. There are people renting chairs and umbrellas at the beach (around $10 each). There's a lot to see and do if you got the $$$$ to spend.

“A Must!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2012

South Beach is truly a treasure. Yes the hipsters rule, but the Art Deco Architecture is breathtaking and worth the crowds. If visiting only for a day trip, make sure you stay till after dark when the neon lights accent the buildings.

This is the place to be in Miami. The people, restaurants, & view are fabulous. You will not be bored. There is too much to describe in this description.
