South beach Miami - Outrageous and Bizarre

Updated on July 18, 2011

South Beach Miami - Anything you want it to be

South beach Miami, it's hot, outrageous, a bit bizarre and very flashy, always friendly and sometimes cheeky, even risqué. It's been the most fabulous spot in the USA since the early 90's. as a matter of fact south beach is just about anything you want it to be, and a whole lot more.

Located at the southernmost tip of Miami Beach

South beach is situated at the southernmost tip of Miami Beach less than 10 minutes drive to downtown Miami and around 20 minutes drive from Miami international airport.

Most fashionable, most photographed place in the world

In the recent years the south beach has become most fashionable and one of the most photographed places in the world. Today south beach is the Mecca for the rich and famous and the young and beautiful. Models, actors and pop stars have all made this their home.

Discovered by Preservationists, models, artists and musicians all at once

It started about 12 years ago with preservationist, and fashion catalog companies and models, artists and musicians all discovered this place and since then it's really been an ongoing renaissance.

Celebrities Hangout for movies, music videos or Recording an album

Many celebrities come here to work whether it's movies, or music video or recording an album. They fall in love with the place and they decide to stay and become part of the experience here. you can be whoever you want to be.

Take your Vitamins to Party Hard

You've got to take your vitamins before you come here because you have got to be going nonstop. You'll hit the beach during the day, surrounded by beautiful people, have lunch in an outdoor cafe, and you should take a nap because you will be out all night long.

Shopper's paradise for designer merchandise

A lot of people don't know this about south beach but it has really become a shopper’s paradise. The designers have setup shops here and there are great things to buy.

Celebrities Magnet

On south beach you have an influx of celebrities all the time. Cameron Diaz opened up a restaurant called Bamboo off of Lincoln road.

Madonna, Silvester stalone, whitney houston, cher bought another home here. Rosie o'Donnel, sophia Lorrein, and they're all part of the experience. You almost feel like a celebrity walking down the road here. Because you might be sitting down in your favorite cafe and your favorite movie star is a couple of tables away and that adds to a lot of fun when you come down to South Beach.

Hot Night Life

When the sun goes down the Stars come out. Now is the time to find yourself a great people watching spot and soak up the atmosphere whilst listening to some cool sounds. and don't worry about packing warm clothes, because during summers the temperatures at night stay almost as hot as the night life. Evenings too don't kick off until late so be sure to take that siesta before going out.

Just be fabulous

After dinner, head for one of the many clubs but beware; here it's strictly dress to impress. Once inside don't be shocked by what you see. Night life is cutting edge and anything goes so leave your inhibitions behind, take to the dance floor and as they say in the south beach; Just Be Fabulous.

      I agree, I was down in Miami for Spring break this past year, and it's nothing less than what was said by writeido... I was staying with a friend who's lived in Miami most of her life and it's to say the least a very extravagant experience. I went to not so touristy places in South Beach and spent most of my time in Downtown Miami at a lot of the artist hang outs. As writeido says, you have to be dressed to impress, you have to leave all judgements behind and just go, enjoy the night as it is and make the most out of any opportunity. I remember getting back from the bars/clubs and waking up the next morning only to get lunch at an outdoor cafe with the most comfortable couches and just started getting ready to go out again. It was a great time and I'd do it all over again.

      To save money I opted for a 6am flight out of Miami on Saturday morning, I literally was out at the bars til 4am swung by my friend's apartment and me and my friend had to rush to the airport. I then had to carry my friend through the airport because she had too much to drink and somehow amongst all that we got upgraded to first class for the flight home. To sum up the whole trip, it was fabulous, and I'd do it all again, just with a lot more money haha.

      Thanks Stephanie. Travel for me is life, it's the life blood that runs through my veins, if i don't move around and see new places, I feel as good as dead. And if i can't share it the way I see it, I'm as good as dumb.

      Glad you liked it :)
