South Beach Travel Guide, Florida

South Beach has always been a beautiful site but with the years passing by and the opportunities it had for its image being promoted it has definitely changed its image.

The trees, the sand and the water are the same, but the atmosphere changed. You can’t say about South Beach that it is a quiet place, and those looking for a deserted beach should turn somewhere else. South Beach is a place for all those who look for fun in a beautiful place.

And as it is said that good advertising can sell anything, a good publicity for South Beach was the fact that the series “Miami Vice” was filmed here thus increasing its popularity. It might not be a tranquil spot for vacationers but there are people who look for some action even when they are on vacation and here there is plenty of it: films are being shot impressing the passers by, a lot of activity is going on on the beach and on water, a lot of action going on on the sidewalks where roller-skates, bikes and other swing among the pedestrians.

If you are the type that likes only to watch you can lie down and relax getting suntanned and you will need no movie to watch you will have live entertainment! This entertainment goes on through the night when the beach is lighted with music, dance, shows and people strolling or stopping at some point to plan the evening.

Shopping is a very popular time spending activity and there are shops that sell the latest fashion and great labels so you should expect high prices but window shopping is another option less pleasant but still entertaining.

Restaurants are the best sought places in the evening and they are full of customers. The aromas fill the air and mix into an inviting scent. You have a great variety of choices and you can choose many types of cuisine so you can eat every night somewhere else and taste different dishes it will only enhance your experience.

As for the attractions there are plenty. You can visit Everglades National Park, the Historical Museum of Southern Florida, Miami Museum of Science and Space Transit Planetarium,

Miami Metro Zoo, Monkey Jungle
or Parrot Jungle and Gardens.

Visiting all the attractions will take some time and will keep everybody busy. Kids will definitely love a visit to the Miami Seaquarium located on 38-acres where they can see dolphins and killer whales, sea lions sea turtles and manatees. Great shows entertain visitors and they can also learn something about marine life.

Miami Metro Zoo is another favorite destination for children where they can see numerous wildlife and learn about them as there are daily presentations.

South beach is a destination that offers entertainment and fun 24 h at an amazing pace. You can do a lot in only one day and feel like you have stayed a week! All this in a five star scenery and surrounding. You can dive in all the action or just be a spectator, take your pick! Either way you are guaranteed a wonderful vacation.

Think of sunshine, sports, water, shops, movies, good food, great accommodation, plenty of attractions, educational sights, wellness and you have a complete package for a perfect holyday.
