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.
