Having seen photos of South Beach and the Art Deco area, we were very impressed with the real thing. It is both attractive and entertaining.
You can sit and have a drink at one of the numerous bars and restaurants and just people watch. You will also see the full range of status symbols from Rolls Royces to Porches, to Harleys, cruising up and down.
With such a range of restaurants the competition means you can eat at a very reasonable price and half price deals are available late afternoon.
All this and a great beach across the road.
One downside is the disgusting state of the public toilets which appear not to be cleaned during the day. On a Sunday both the mens and womens were overflowing - yuk. Make sure you use those in the bars and restaurants.
