Best Things To Do in Miami Beach

Miami Beach caters to the moneyed crowd. At upscale shopping centers like Lincoln Road Mall and renowned spas (Agua Spa at the Delano is a particular favorite), residents and visitors spend boat loads for comfort and comfortable clothing. Night owls shell out hundreds on drinks at dance clubs and bars. Sophisticated types observe the Art Deco architecture and stop by the Bass Museum of Art in the afternoons. Relaxing at the beach is truly the best "free" activity. Most cost-conscious visitors spend their days lounging on the beach or swimming, surfing and kayaking in the Atlantic Ocean. Also, don't forget to stop by the very moving Holocaust Memorial.
