North Bay Road
If for some reason staring out your windows at Biscayne Bay doesn’t keep you busy for 24 hours, there’s plenty within a short drive of North Bay Road to do the trick. West 41st Street has a few dining options and takes you over to Collins Avenue where the options are endless. North Bay Road runs parallel to Alton Road as it winds around La Gorce Country Club.
If you plan your evening right, you could run into one of the celebrities that call North Bay Road home. In the past, actor Matt Damon, singer Shakira and MLB player Alex Rodriguez have lived here. Living on North Bay puts you near Miami Beach without the kind of traffic, noise and commercial development prevalent on that stretch of land in the Atlantic. If you want to hit the mainland or the airport, I-95 offers a direct route when traffic isn’t bad.
Where To Live:
Lots of places boast having Biscayne Bay in their backyard, but one of the only places that’s true is along North Bay Road, where homes line the west side of Miami Beach and enjoy unfettered access to the pristine waters. This winding thoroughfare is dotted with single-family homes on the water and inland, on the east side of the street. The price disparity between the two sides is shocking. On the east side, you can buy a home in the low millions up to, say, $4.5 million. But on the west side, you’re looking at much bigger price tags: $15 to $30 million for starters. But you get that true Biscayne Bay backyard, and if that’s what you’re looking for, it’s priceless.
