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 used to be so charming when the people roaming were full of the Latina culture. No more. It is just tourist.

This was a great family vacation. Make sure you have a lot of money with you because it's very expensive if you want to play at the beach in Miami

There are more than enough places to eat around south beach. I recommend you try to dine at: Little Havana-1957. Sugar Factory, Sushi Samba and Pizza Rustica.

Great music. Amazing food. Feels like your in Cuba. Friendly people. Clean beaches. Can be pricey, but you get what you pay for. Take a walk on Ocean Drive at night for a romantic stroll.

Clear water, beautiful beach. Calm ocean and nice boardwalk. Not overly crowded like I expected. Lots of people from different countries vacation here.

there are plenty of sports bars in and around South Beach and there's one Irish bar in particular. Most of these places will be showing the game I'm sure.
