Miami Beach Dining and Shopping
Although their fortunes have been so inextricably intertwined that most people consider them a single entity, Miami and Miami Beach are separate cities. Miami Beach, since its incorporation in 1915, has been one of the most popular tourist destinations in the US.
Miami Beach in the 1920s saw an influx of millionaires. The enclave of the very wealthy was concentrated at the southern end of Miami Beach; among its members were James Cash Penney of the departments tore chain, Harvey Firestone of the tire company, and his chief competitor, Frank Sieberling of Goodyear.
The early Miami Beach estates were opulent but not groundbreaking in their architecture. During the Depression, however, Miami Beach developers were swept up in the Art Deco craze, and some of the finest examples of their work still grace the streets of South Beach and the pages of the National Historical Register.
Visitors to Miami Beach can immerse themselves in Miami Beach Art Deco along Ocean Drive, enjoying some of the city’s finest dining at Mango’s or the News Café, and watching some of the world’s beautiful people and extreme models strolling by or relaxing in the park which separates Ocean Drive from the beach.
Miami Beach’s answer to Rodeo Drive is Lincoln Road, its open-air, boutique-heavy mall which extends for seven blocks from the Atlantic to Biscayne Bay. Books, perfumes, oddities, and vintage and trendy clothing and accessories in every imaginable style, color and fabric await. The Lincoln Road café scene is equally popular, and the legendary $6 USD breakfasts at the Lincoln Road Café will leave patrons buzzing almost as much as the complementary café con leche.
Miami Beach night life has something for everyone and all of it in no particular order. Gay clubs, Latin clubs, adult and VIP clubs, dance and jazz clubs all coexist peacefully shoulder to shoulder throughout South Beach, and all of them stay open well past the wee hours.
The five-star Palms South Beach Miami, set in tropical gardens facing the Atlantic, is in the heart of the Miami Art Deco district, just a short walk from both Ocean Drive and Lincoln Road.
