|About these ratings|
Travelers go to Miami mainly for Miami Beach and they go to Miami Beach mainly for South Beach, the region's unrivaled crown jewel. The art deco history of the city meets the bright lights and vibrant nightlife of the younger generation.
There's something for everyone here — and a lot of it. White sand, an eclectic dining scene, prime shopping, luxurious spas and worldclass nightlife are all staples in Miami Beach. Just make sure to bring plenty of loot — Miami Beach can be done on a budget, but you'll severely limit your options and it won't be nearly as fun.
There are several ways to get to Miami Beach from downtown Miami, including the Metrobus and taxi. Many travelers prefer to simplify things by basing their vacation in one of the many hotels here. South Beach has the costliest accommodations — thriftier travelers can find a deal if they stay farther north, between 24th and 192nd Streets.
