More to Enjoy in Miami Beach

Spectacular neighborhoods

Most locals divide Miami Beach into three main districts: South Beach, Mid-Beach, and North Beach. However, within these one-of-a-kind enclaves, you'll uncover even more illustrious neighborhoods, each with a personality of its own. Miami Beach's vast selection of condo communities cater to the most discerning buyers—and whether you choose to settle down in the architecturally significant Apogee or the brand-new Five Park project near Miami Beach Canopy Bridge, you'll have no trouble finding a luxurious paradise to call your own.

Nightlife and cuisine

Perhaps one of the biggest draws to Miami Beach has to be the area's surging nightlife scene. Some of the most exclusive and storied clubs call this barrier island home, many of which offer spectacular views of the city and bay. Embrace nostalgia and upscale charm at The Regent Cocktail Club, or sample the finest Japanese and Mediterranean-fusion dishes at MILA, one of Miami Beach's best rooftop lounges. And to truly dine in style, we recommend Nobu on Collins Avenue, Pao by Paul Qui in the Faena Hotel, or CVI.CHE 105.

Shopping destinations

No matter what it is you're looking for, you'll surely find it in one of Miami Beach's iconic shopping outposts. Lincoln Road serves as the island's main retail thoroughfare, boasting outposts for more than 200 luxury name-brands. To discover even more opportunities, indulge in some window shopping around Fifth and Alton, one of the area's largest indoor malls. And for a truly exclusive experience, Fontainebleau offers its own in-house boutiques and jewelers.

Events and attractions

When you call Miami Beach home, the world is quite literally your oyster. Opportunities abound throughout this convivial city, where you'll discover countless different cultures and curiosities to pique your interest all year-round. If you want to live like a true local, unwind with a waterfront stroll through South Pointe Pier Park or Lummus Park, two of Miami Beach's most iconic green spaces. SoBe is also home to a number of top-rated museums, as well as the much-anticipated South Beach Wine and Food Festival.
