Visiting South Beach - Miami Beach, Florida
By Randall Spitz
Whether it is for a weekend or a week, a trip to South Beach will never be boring. South Beach is officially called Miami Beach.
It is located on an island. Be aware that the climate is very humid and hot. During normal years, you can expect rainfall every afternoon during the summer months. It usually stops raining in time to enjoy an evening outdoors.
If you are not too crazy about the heat, you should visit between the months of December and March. The weather is cooler at this time of year, but it is still warm enough to swim at the beach.
After tanning on the beach, you might want to check out Lincoln Road. Lincoln Road is a pedestrian mall lined with various shops, restaurants and bars. To cool off, you can grab a cold one or dine al fresco.
Shops on Lincoln Road include some mainstream chains, as well as some quaint unusual stores. Many restaurants offer sushi, Italian and German cuisines. There are also some pizza and burger joints in the mall.
For fine dining, you can walk over to Ocean Drive along the beach. There you will find many restaurants featuring seafood, along with other fare. Most have both indoor and outdoor seating. Along this ocean street, you will find some fabulous night clubs.
On Collins Ave. you will find more hotels, restaurants and specialty shops. If you love art deco, this is the place for you. Many of the buildings have been restored to their former art deco splendor.
Washington Boulevard is another main artery on the beach. If you are dining on a budget, you can find many burger and pizza joints. It also has a number of Brazilian, Columbian and Peruvian restaurants.
You will not be disappointed.
