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.

If you stay in South Beach most of the Art Deco hotels lack the spaciousness and features of a newer high-end hotel. Walking down Ocean Blvd. is a pleasnt experience day or night. The beach is across the street and is very safe.
