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.

My girlfriend and I went out here to celebrate our birthdays together. This place is so much fun. Tons of nightlife/bars to go to and so much hype. This is the place to be if you want a good time!
