Overview

People watching is a great pastime in Miami's South Beach, which draws celebrities and beautiful people in skimpy swim attire to see and be seen. The wide and fine, white sand-covered beaches are popular spots for fashion photo shoots, so you're sure to see models. The area is known for its hip clubs and wild nightlife as well as numerous excellent restaurants.

South Beach is not really for families, moreso for college kids, young adults, its okay to bring your kids during the weekday time.

We walked along the boulevard at South Beach in nice weather (sunshine). It is a pleasurable walk with lots of people watching, but very crowded on Sunday afternoon.
