Holidays in South Beach, Miami 2013/2014:
Known to the locals as SoBe, this is South Beach! Famous for its energy, hip nightlife, palatial homes and beautiful people, this is ‘the’ place to be when visiting Miami. During the day you can watch models, vintage cars and rollerbladers parade past, whilst you sit back and relax at one of Ocean Drive’s trendy outdoor café’s.
Ocean Drive is SoBe's most photographed street and in the Art District you'll find more than 800 Art Deco buildings and edgy art galleries. In Little Havana, salsa music fills the air whilst men play dominos in the park. Vizcaya Museum and Gardens is one of the state's oldest science museums and features an Italian Renaissance-style villa.
The world is your oyster in ‘SoBe’: lap up the sun on the beach, head to Lincoln Road or Ocean Drive to people watch in the trendy restaurants and bars, take a transfer to Sawgrass Mills where you can shop ‘til you.
The night owls amongst you will love South Beach at night with its many hip and trendy bars and clubs offering a real party atmosphere, so all you need to do is make sure you look your best and hit the town ‘SoBe’ style!
South Beach is home to numerous nightspots, frequented by the rich and famous. Try the Tantra Restaurant and Lounge or the News Café on legendary Ocean Drive, a haunt for wannabe models and socialites, for early evening drinks and then when the night is fully underway head to LIV Fontainebleau or the Nikki Beach Hotel’s Club 01 where the dance floor awaits. A block off Ocean Drive, all-night clubs raise the tempo with Mansion, Bed and Opium Garden, to name a few.
