Things to do in South Beach

Believe the hype. South Beach is a district that buzzes 24/7! A hedonistic party playground where days can be spent relaxing on sun-drenched beaches, taking Segway tours or shopping in the boutiques, and nights partying from dusk till dawn, skipping from one trendy club and rooftop bar to the next. Lincoln Road Mall is paradise for shoppers and foodies. The outdoor pedestrian promenade teems with sidewalk cafes, bars, and restaurants, along with stores stocking everything from luxury labels to everyday essentials. Española Way is a lively hotspot overflowing with Hispanic flavor. Vibrant and charming, it’s a must-see for its Spanish colonial architecture. The street is home to quirky independent boutiques and traditional Mexican, Spanish, and Cuban bars and restaurants. No visit to Miami would be the same without a visit to the pastel-hued buildings of the stunning Art Deco District. As the world’s largest concentrated area of Art Deco architecture, it’s a dramatic reminder of the “Magic City’s” awesome past.

Good for young travelers

Although South Beach offers enough entertainment to keep all types of travelers happy, it’s geared towards young travelers wanting a vacation that they’ll never forget. Whilst South Beach can be done on a budget, partying with the rich and famous, shopping in the chic boutiques, and drinking and dining in the swank restaurants and clubs costs a pretty penny. Be prepared to stretch your bank balance if you want to make the most of the activities, fun, and attractions in Miami’s trendiest district! However, the excellent South Beach hotel deals available make it appealing for every budget.

How to get to South Beach

Just 10 miles from Miami International Airport, South Beach is easily accessible. A close-knit community with everything on your doorstep, hiring a car isn’t strictly necessary. Taxis are readily available and key locations can be easily reached on foot, or using public transportation. Hopping into a cab outside the airport will have you arriving at your destination in 15 minutes. If you prefer to travel in South Beach like a local, then jump on the Miami-Dade Transit tram to Miami International Airport Station to pick up the Line 150 bus toward South Beach’s Washington Avenue and 5th Street—the journey should take approximately 55 minutes.
