With world-famous nightlife, hotels, museums, the Art Deco District, Lincoln Road shopping and, of course, the seemingly endless beach, Miami Beach is the most attractive place to visit, live or invest in South Florida. But the island is hardly a single thing: From quiet back streets to exclusive smaller islands, there’s something on Miami Beach for everyone.

Shopping, clubs, restaurants, beach. And did we mention shopping? Parking here can be problematic, but if you want to take an Uber or park in the 17th Street garage, you can easily walk to tons of shops and stores. Along with all the streets known for extravagant nightlife, shops also line Washington Avenue and Espanola Way.

Miami Beach is the place to see and be seen, so a simple lunch or coffee date can be a major outing. Don’t neglect the beach and the boat while you’re living here. It’s one of the biggest perks. Finnegan’s is Josh Stein’s favorite spot; it’s a great place to people watch on Lincoln Road.

By Night:

Collins Avenue. Lincoln Road. Ocean Drive. You couldn’t visit every boutique, restaurant and club on these streets if you tried. With a dynamic, high-paced nightlife, Miami Beach lives up to its reputation as a party city. Where else could you get a $100 cocktail?

Dine at some of the best, most expensive seafood and Mediterranean restaurants. Try the foie gras ravioli at Scarpetta or the tuna tartar at Meat Market. Then hit the clubs. They’re open all night.

Where To Live:

Miami Beach is a large city spread across many islands, so each portion has a vibe that’s unique to it, despite sharing the same municipal government. Choose to live somewhere like Sunset Islands or the Venetian Islands and you’ll enjoy a truly private and residential existence where millionaire mansions are the only properties in site.

Or opt for something on the main portion of Miami Beach like Pine Tree Drive and still live on the water with better access to shops and restaurants. You can live in or rent out one of the smaller units in a historic art deco.

Practically the entire easternmost sliver of Miami Beach is made up of luxury high-rise condos for the kind of living that comes packed with amenities such as concierge services and cabana bars.
