many ways, South Miami Beach Florida is a tropical Manhattan with
deco-styled Miami Beach hotels instead of skyscrapers. The main
in South Beach are Ocean Drive, Collins Avenue and Washington Avenue.
Along Ocean Drive which sits just a few yards away from the beach,
are cafes, restaurants, hotels and round the clock entertainment.
On weekend evenings, Ocean Drive is packed with partygoers cruising
the pulsating Latin rhythm-filled air in search of the sensuous.
Club hopping is an art form here and the non-stop party atmosphere
seems more suited to Rio de Janeiro than anywhere else in the U.S.
Along Collins Avenue, also known as A1A, sit rows and rows of high-fashion
shops. Here you will find Armani, Jones of New York, Versace, and
Liz Clairborne. Washington Avenue is the heart of the South Miami
Beach nightclub and afterhours scene. In fact, The Diner, at the
corner of 11th St.and Washington Ave, was used in the popular MTV
series The Real World and Espaniola Way was the back drop
for much of Miami Vice.
