Miami: Brickell and South Beach
Sometimes called the "Manhattan of the South" for its high concentration of banks, Brickell has long served as Miami’s financial district. In recent years, however, the area has seen a boom in luxury high-rises, and gourmet restaurants and posh boutiques have followed in their wake. You’ll find these new storefronts on the area's two main thoroughfares—Brickell and Miami Avenues—which are also home to eclectic art galleries, wine-tasting rooms, and chic bakeries. At night, an array of stylish clubs and VIP lounges offers everything from live blues music to DJ-dropped electronic beats. Causeways on the northern end of the neighborhood connect it to lively South Beach.
Located just east of downtown on the barrier island that forms Miami Beach, South Beach is legendary for its boisterous, ultra-trendy nightclubs and picture-perfect coastline. Head for the stretch of sand known as Lummus Park for some of Miami's best people-watching. The natural scenery is almost overshadowed by the chiseled beach-goers dotting the sand. From here, a wood-slat boardwalk runs all the way up to North Beach, attracting joggers and roller bladers. You can also head about a mile south to South Pointe Park or to Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park across the bay for quieter, more secluded shores.
The famous art-deco district is where to go to see the city's iconic, streamlined hotels in pastel shades—it was the first 20th-century neighborhood to be recognized by the National Register of Historic Places. Each morning at 10:30, local experts from the Miami Design Preservation League lead a 90-minute walking tour highlighting the neighborhood's signature architecture.
