The best place to stay in when in Miami, full of shops, Great Locations to have long walks and see what south beach has to offer.

it is of course a tourist place, mostly mass tourist restaurants and fun places but it is the place to go for fun and lively moments - often overpriced and lower food quality. Seen and to be seen.

Architecture from the 80's with pastel colours that lined the strip! There is ALWAYS something to do and eat in South Beach.

The vibe of South Beach is electric. Come to enjoy the buildings, the sandy beaches, but especially people watching. You simply can not come to Miami without stopping to visit this area.

It's certainly has a nice beach and restaurants and some acceptable souvenir shops. It was an unusually hot day in Miami the day we visited and it was uncomfortable. If you wilt in the heat, I would choose a cooler month to visit

This was my first time in Miami, There is a lot of restaurants, shops and bars. It is a little pricey but well worth it. It's walking distance to the hotels. So make sure you bring comfortable clothes and sandals. This time of the year...More

Loved the beach. Lots of friendly people and the water was warm. A little too much seaweed tho. The umbrellas, chairs, and tent rental was a fair price.

Hi Jstelb, First and foremost, don't believe the Uber hype. I am in Miami Beach/SouthBeach every couple of months and I rent a car everytime. You can get a rental car for ~$15/day ahead of time on Orbitz. Uber freaks can... More
