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.

Everything about Miami and its beaches just makes you want to quit your job and move here. My eyes seemed like I was in a Claritin commercial. Things were so bright clear and colorful. It was awesome!!! Talk about caliente'!!!!!

We stayed here because we wanted to be by the beach and maybe go out one night. You get that and so much more. There's something for everyone no matter your age and it's always alive! It kind of reminds me of Manhattan, just by the beach. If you don't want to go out to dance, go to any one... More

This is the kind of place you visit just to say you've done it. Pretty much what you've seen on tv and in movies: beautiful Art Deco hotels, a bustling boardwalk, long white sand beach, and spring breakers hitting the raucous outdoor bars. If you want to save big on parking, park at the city garage across from city hall,... More

If you haven't yet been to Ocean Drive, South Beach you gotta go. Loaded with sidewalk restaurants and pubs. your choice of what to order and with lots of competition the prices are better here than elsewhere.

Went here with my best friend in the afternoon on the 1st day of Spring last week. It is a place that most should see at least once in their life. It was my 2nd visit and jumping as usual. The beach and water are in great condition considering the amount of traffic. Some cool cafes to enjoy the sites... More
