We'd really appreciate some advice. We're going to spend a few days in Miami for a convention in Mar. We plan to be in the Miami area for four days prior to the conference. There are four of us (two couples), and we're pretty conservative in terms of nightlife, etc. We really like to shop, swim at great beaches and eat good food (not too expensive) !
We'd like ideas for staying near (or on) a beach, if possible...in a fairly nice hotel. We'll have a rental car and could drive...but probably not more than an hour beyond Miami Beach.
Thanks for your help!
