Around South Beach

Most of South Beach living consists of hotels, condos, and multi-family residences. This area tends to have pricey real estate compared to other parts of Miami.

South Beach has a variety of restaurant options from casual dining and take-out eateries to high-end cuisine. Every type of food that you can imagine can be found in South Beach. From upscale seafood dining to fast food Cuban sandwiches, the possibilities are endless.

Unlike many cities, South Beach stays open late, where one can normally find dining at anytime.

You’ll see a large amount of a diverse crowd walking up and down Ocean Drive, which is the main street that has all the action. Although, the national language is English, Spanish is a close second as the most spoken language in South Beach. With easy access to the beach, many people will already have on bathing suits ready to lay out on the sand or dive in the ocean waters.

South Beach comes alive on Friday nights as the bright lights turn on. Music blares from most restaurants and bars onto the streets as people do their best dance moves.

You’ll also see plenty of tourists visit the club scene with drinks in hand for a taste of South Beach nightlife that doesn’t end until 5 a.m.

A long night on the town calls for a relaxing day on the beach. Sundays are the days where the beach gets the most action. The beach is more of a party atmosphere than other beaches.
