Everything You Need To Know About Planning A Perfect Miami Beach Stay
From sun up until the wee hours of the morning, there’s always something going on in Miami. The wondrous white sand beaches beckon tourists to enjoy laid-back, sun-filled days and then ramp up ready to boldly hit the town in the evening. Here’s what you need to know when planning a perfect stay at Miami Beach:
Miami Beach pulses with a vibrant infusion of life, color, flavor, and activity.
Warm, sunny skies and beautiful beaches make it a popular tourist destination.
You'll want to ogle the boats on display at the Miami Beach Marina.
You can't help but marvel at the majestic boats and yachts that are docked here.
The ideal time to visit Miami Beach to avoid crowds is the morning.
Miami doesn't really start to get going until noon, so the best time to stroll or take a run on the beach, grab the best beach chairs, or secure an ideal spot is in the morning hours.
Each beach area has a distinct personality and visitors, so do your homework ahead of time.
Some sections are more for couples and young adults, others are family-friendly, and some sections are definitely more lively and entertaining. Before heading out, ask your concierge about which area that meets your requirements.
South Beach is home to the world’s largest art deco architecture.
There are more than 800 buildings that feature Art Deco Architecture in Miami Beach.
The beach path here is a call you should answer.
The beach path here is popular for biking, blading, and jogging, and runs from South Pointe Park to the north along the coastline, and finally turning into a wooden boardwalk at 23rd St. to 46th St.
Plan to drive up and down Ocean Drive during the day and at night to capture the vibe of Miami.
The area features a lively nightlife here as well.
Decide what type of hotel experience you seek before booking your stay.
Miami has a great assortment of hotels. If a toney, pampered, relaxation-mode experience is what you seek, consider a hotel like the Carlyle.
Hotels lit up with colorful neon and featuring night-entertainment and lively crowds are also in abundance at Miami.
The hotels have personalities as varied as the people who stay at them.
Come hungry for delicious cuisine.
Florida Stone Crab is a local favorite. The claws are large and strong enough to break an oyster's shell. Joe's Stone Crab, located at the end of South Beach at 11 Washington Ave., has grown from a small lunch counter in 1913 to today's Miami institution.
Be sure to experience a Miami Vice cocktail here as well.
The fruity frozen namesake concoction can be made with, or without, alcohol.
Schedule time to visit the impressive Wolfsonian Museum in the heart of the Art Deco District.
It is a combination museum, library, and research center under Florida International University. The Wolfsonian's website touts that it explores the inventive and provocative character of the modern world through its collections.
Whether you’re planning a long weekend stay or will be there for a lengthier visit, there is plenty to do and see beyond the beautiful beach areas–if exploration calls. Otherwise, sit back and enjoy the spectacular weather and interviewing views while here. Once you visit, you’ll be back!
