Owner description: 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.

Weather and scenery was great. Beware of some of the restaurants along the strip. They are not honest and do not disclose the cost of the "happy hour" drinks. Ask in advance! Bike rentals are a lot of fun and are a good way to get around. Beach is excellent.

So much to see and do and the food is fabulous. Have a drink in the afternoon in one of the cafés on Ocean Dr and people watch. You'll stay entertained all day.

South Beach is a microcosm of humanity. It has tremendous highlights and yet reality pokes through the haze of tropical fantasy. Be prepared for high prices in restaurants, but there are always the usual fast food joints and some reasonable diners and small restaurants. Be careful--you can easily be ripped off by the claims of certain restaurants. For example, they say, 2 for 1 drink but it us a far cry from what you would expect. You can go to South Pointe and see million-dollar towers and yet go into a local bakery and have someone follow you in for a quarter. The beach is free and beautiful but the city itself is not the cleanest. However, I saw workers out cleaning the streets every day. Public transportation is a breeze--local buses are only a quarter and a trip from the airport to South Beach is only $2.35. You can walk up and down the streets and enjoy the art deco architecture, the aroma of different kinds of restaurants, loud music, bright lights and the beach always present as your friend. Miami is not far if you want to take a bus in, only $2, We went to the Zoo and had a great time even though we had to take 2 buses and the metro--a fun challenge. Enjoy!
