Miami Beach, Florida
Miami Beach, originally a man made island and a coconut plantation, is a busy and beautiful tropical vacation destination, otherwise known as the American Riviera. Miami Beach has a few special areas of interest that visitors should take notice of.
Restored and revitalized, tourists visiting the South Beach district of Miami Beach will drive along Ocean Drive, which runs parallel to the beach. Ocean Drive is a popular spot due to it's Art Deco Hotels, trendy cafes, and nightclubs, and of course close proximity to the beach.
Lincoln Road has a beautiful 7-8 block pedestrian mall, with over 400 businesses, including Art Galleries, Restaurants, trendy shops, and nightclubs. You can find delicious food, from Cuban, to American, Mexican, and French.
This area of South Beach is perfect for a stroll, drinks, dinner, or dessert. Local Street performers create an unique and fascinating presence, perfect for those who enjoy "people" watching. On Sundays there is the Farmers market, offering fresh foods, and produce, and for bargain hunters, there is an Antique market on every other Sunday.
Arrive early in the day before the crowds, and enjoy a delicious breakfast and hot Cuban coffee from one of many street cafes.
