Miami and its Beaches

Part of the quintessential Miami experience is the beaches, particularly Miami Beach and the infamous South Beach. Here the mode of dress is bikini (or less) and sidewalk cafes, boutique and nightclubs dot the areas. Skating is a popular means of getting around as is bicycling. These are America's Riviera, and one magazine called it the "tropical hot spot for the hip and romantic". You can find great deals on hotels Miami South Beach and Miami Beach have to offer.

South Beach is more than a diet, it is a way of life. It became the play land of the rich and famous in the 1920's and its art deco style is everywhere in the brilliantly colored buildings and ultra streamlined architecture. In the eighty some odd blocks which surround Flamingo Park are some of the most beautiful Mediterranean styled houses in the nation. Europeans love to venture to South Beach and their cultural influence is everywhere, even on the topless beaches.

The beaches of southern Florida do not have as strong in currents as the Pacific Ocean cities, but surfers and wind surfers still flock here especially along Hualover Beach (clothing optional) and South Pointe. Along Ocean Drive between 5th and 15th is the most populated of the beach areas, especially among families. There are bistros, shops and eateries all along the drive. Key Biscayne and Crandon Park is about 15 minutes to the north by car but the waters are shallow, great for swimming and snorkeling. At the south end is the historic Cape Florida Lighthouse amongst waving palms and soft sandy beach fronts at Bill Braggs Park. Scuba diving is popular along what is called the Wreck Trek, where boats over the centuries have sunk. It is also great fishing here as the schools love the old wrecks. Deep sea fishing tours are also popular and you can book one from one of the many marinas not far from the inexpensive hotels Miami South Beach is known for.
