Miami’s South Beach, an International Hot Spot

Miami’s South Beach, an International Hot Spot

One of the most popular destinations on the U.S. east coast is Miami’s South Beach.  Aside from the beautiful white sand beaches and warm waters, the area is lively with its hot nightclubs, trendy shops, restaurants, and the beautiful pastel-hued Art Deco buildings.  Some of the buildings and hotels in the area are a walk through a past era, giving South Beach that attraction for tourists.  Art Deco architecture in South Beach represents the rebirth of the area in the 1930’s after the devastating hurricane of 1926.  Art Deco is an eclectic form of modernism characterized by geometric shapes.  Art Deco architecture can be seen in some of the old hotels and buildings that line Ocean Drive along the beach front. 

 

South Beach is the southern section of Miami Beach.  With hundreds of restaurants, nightclubs and oceanfront hotels, South Beach is one of the most popular hotspots in the U.S for foreign visitors, particularly Europeans.   South Beach has become a favorite European tourist destination, for its affordable direct flights and international appeal.  The beaches echo not only with English, but Spanish, German, French and other foreign languages.  Foreigners can often be found at Haulover Beach, a legal haven for topless European sunbathing.  With all-year-round beautiful weather and great people watching, some of the best sidewalk dining is found in South Beach.   Restaurants spill into the streets, with attractive international cuisine and seafood set out for display.  Nightlife starts heating up when the sun goes down.

 

Collins Ave. and Ocean Ave are considered to be the heart of the area and are lined with many oceanfront, restaurants & bars, hotels and resorts.  Two streets off the beach, Washington Avenue hosts some of the world’s largest and most popular nightclubs & bars, staying open until the wee hours of the morning.  There is also great shopping for very unique items on and around Lincoln Road, South Beach’s premiere shopping area. Lincoln Road is an open-air pedestrian mall closed to traffic, lined with small boutiques, sidewalk cafes and bars.

 

Greater Miami has miles and miles of beaches and waterways, plenty of water sports, and two nearby national parks (Everglades National Park and Biscayne National Park, the only living tropical reef within the continental U.S.)   A dinner cruise makes for a romantic evening, while an airboat ride in the Everglades is a day-time ticket to adventure.   

 

For your stay in South Beach, The Loews Miami Beach Hotel is right on the beach in the Art Deco area and is a popular hotel with great service.  Easy online travel booking can be found at VoyageMonkey.com.
