Miami Beach Travel Guide, FloridaMiami is a major city in southeastern Florida, in the United States. Miami and the surrounding metropolitan area are situated on northern Biscayne Bay between the Everglades and the Atlantic Ocean. By population, Miami is the largest city in Miami-Dade County and the county seat, the largest city in the South Florida metropolitan area, which comprises Miami-Dade County, Broward County, and Palm Beach County, making up the largest metropolitan area in the Southeastern United States and the sixth largest metropolitan area in the United States. However, based on city limits, it is the second-largest city in Florida (after Jacksonville).
South Beach Miami has been a party spot for years, but over the past few years, it has been a destination for an older Spring Breake crowd looking for a more sophisticated club scene. South Beach is located on the south end of Miami Beach in the historic Art Deco District, and can be quite costly.
South Beach, or SoBe, is Miami Beach's buzziest bit. The vibrant area, with its pastel-hued buildings, hip nightclubs, trendy shops and see-and-be-seen restaurants, attracts socialites and their satellites year-round. The Art Deco District and Haulover Beach (home to the city's only legal haven for nudists) are other attractions. The Beach can be affordable, depending on where you stay, eat and play. Plan to spend some time in SoBe's cool bars; things start heating up when the sun goes down.
Tourism here is an important industry: the beaches of Greater Miami draw visitors from across the country and around the world, and the Art Deco nightclub district in South Beach (in Miami Beach) is widely regarded as one of the most glamourous in the world. However, it is important to note that Miami Beach is not a part of the city of Miami.
