Updated on February 25, 2011

Miami Beach Florida

Miami's full of great tourist destinations for visitors and residents alike! We'll cover some great tourist destinations like the quintenssential Miami hot spot South Beach. Miami Beach has been one of America's pre-eminent beach resorts for almost a century. The city is often referred to under the umbrella term of "Miami," despite being a distinct municipality, making Miami and Miami Beach two separate cities. South Beach is the quintenssential Miami hot spot.

Where to go ? Try this few spots and I suggest you walk.

South Beach

In both daytime and at nightfall, the South Beach section of Miami Beach is a major entertainment destination with hundreds of nightclubs, restaurants, boutiques and hotels. The area is popular with both American and international tourists (mainly from Europe, Latin America, Canada, Israel, the Caribbean and within the United States), with some having permanent or second homes. The large number of European and Brazilian tourists also explains their influence on South Beach's lax and overall tolerance of topless sunbathing, despite it being a public beach.

Lincoln Road

Originally covered by a forest of mangroves, as was most of Miami Beach, Lincoln Road runs east and west between 16th Street and 17th Street on Miami Beach and is now closed to traffic between Washington and Lenox Avenues. In that area, Lincoln Road is a popular pedestrian mall lined with state-of-the-art multiplex cinema, a concert hall for the New World Symphony Orchestra, boutique and national retail stores, fine restaurants and bars. Lincoln Road is also home to the newly restored Colony Theater, a performing arts venue, and Art Center South Florida, a collection of studio and gallery space for emerging artists. Street performers entertain an almost constant stream of tourists and locals on Lincoln Road. It is among the most popular destinations for visitors to South Miami Beach.

Ocean Drive

Ocean Drive is the easternmost street in South Beach, and stems from south of First to 15th Street, running in a north-south direction. It is known for its Art Deco hotels. The street is the cream of the city's Art Deco District, which is home to about 800 preserved buildings. Streamline Moderne evolved from the Art Deco style, and dominates the street. Ocean Drive is responsible for the South Beach aesthetic that most out-of-town visitors expect. It is a popular Spring Break and tourist area, including the famous, yet predominantly local, Pearl and Nikki Beach night spots.

Washington Avenue

One of the best-known streets in South Beach. Running parallel with Ocean and Collins, Washington is notorious for having some of the world's largest and most popular nightclubs, such as Crobar and Mansion. During "season" (October 15 to May 15th) the street is jammed with traffic until early in the morning (as late as 6 am) every night of the week. In the 1990s explosion of South Beach as a nighclub venue, its nightclub moguls included Ingrid Casares, whose investors included the singer Madonna Ciccone.

Alton Road

The main westside north-south street located 1-3 blocks from Biscayne Bay. On the part that traverses South Beach, the road is host to many local businesses, including dry cleaners, small furniture stores, small grocery markets, non-chain restaurants and fast food restaurants. It is mainly residential once it crosses Michigan Avenue north of South Beach.

Española Way

Running from Collins Avenue to Pennsylvania Avenue, was conceived by N.B.T. Roney (of the Roney Plaza Hotel) in 1925 as "The Historic Spanish Village," modeled after the romantic Mediterranean villages found in France and Spain. Today it consists of art galleries, restaurants, and quirky shops.
