Dolphin Mall attracts shoppers from all around Miami with its range of retail outlets and restaurants. The mall's position near the Miami International Airport makes it an excellent option for travelers with delayed flights, as well as anyone who forgot their socks or sunglasses and wants to avoid downtown prices. (Keep in mind that the mall does not have a pharmacy, so essentials including toothbrushes and painkillers must be bought elsewhere.)

Past visitors exalt the food court at the Dolphin Mall, which they say sports a range of eateries sure to appeal to every appetite. The wide selection of eateries mimics the diversity of retail options, which include H&M, Bose and Marshalls. Travelers with kids appreciate the mall's entertainment options like Dave and Buster's and a movie theater.

Dolphin Mall is open from 10 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Sunday. The mall sits about 13 miles west of downtown Miami in the Sweetwater neighborhood. Dolphin Mall provides 8,500 free parking spaces, while valet parking costs $7 Monday to Thursday and $10 Friday to Sunday. Shoppers opting for public transit choose between two bus routes, Nos. 7 and 238, which run from downtown Miami to the mall. Check out Dolphin Mall's website for a full list of its outlets and other information.

#1 Miami Beach

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 world-class 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.
