Stay here to get away from the rat race of South Beach, but be close enough that you can hop a cab to/from Ocean Drive easily. The atmosphere is zen-like and the service and amenities are divine. Be sure to get a room with a balcony to enjoy the right-on-the-waterfront view/experience.

There is a 2 mile breathtaking path of sidewalks that encircles the entire island. Great for joggers, strollers, bikers and walkers, and you'll get a great view of the island as well.

While it's a hike out to this mall (an hour plus, from Miami), it makes up for it in the deals you can get for designer clothes. Even has furniture stores, formal dress stores too.

Carnivores unite! This place is delicious and the atmosphere is up-scale without the formality of an 'old-boys-club' feel. Request wine and watch them fetch it from a glass encased wine room in a central focal point of the restaurant. Ordering the shoestring fries family style and any of their desserts is a must!!
