Miami’s Number One AttractionFor a taste of the good life, head to South Beach, known for its Art Deco hotels lining Ocean Drive and Collins Avenue, glittering nightlife, and see-and-be-seen vibe. The long stretch of beach, starting with the pier at the top of historic Washington Avenue, is a great place to take in the Miami of postcards and enjoy the sunset over the cityscape. This is where you’ll find some of Miami’s best shopping, top-tier nightlife, and award-winning restaurants, not to mention great people-watching and luxury-car spotting.

Also nicknamed “SoBe,” South Beach is around 20 minutes from Mandarin Oriental Miami, and while Brickell Key has fine imported sand, you’ll still want to pay your respects to the granddaddy of Florida Beaches. The setting for many movies and television shows, this area which was once farmland is now a gorgeous spot for sunbathers and swimmers and those who just want to be seen. Fashionable streets—Collins Avenue,Ocean Drive, Lincoln Road, and Sunset Harbour's Bay Road—are home to some of Miami’s best restaurants and hotspots including Lucali, a pizzeria that’s also famous for its calzones, as well as Macaluso’s, another popular Italian choice. And yes, drinks are allowed on SoBe, so order that beer on tap or frozen cocktail in a plastic cup and get a bit of that famous Miami sun! Photo by Charlie Cowins/Flickr.

The historic strip attracts a lively crowd of people who enjoy fun, nightlife, music and top-tier cuisine. Grab some shade under a palm tree at the super green lawns of Lummus Park while enjoying the view of the ocean or curl your toes in the sand between 1st and 21st street, Ocean Drive and Collins Avenue. Take a walk in the area and see the Art Deco buildings of South Beach or stroll along the boardwalk and watch the cruise ships heading out to sea.
