South Beach

Ocean Drive, Miami, Florida

The Basics

Head to Ocean Drive to see Lummus Park Beach, or stop by Lincoln Road to shop and wander the beach promenade between Fifth and Fifteenth streets. Another main highlight is the set of pastel-hued structures on Collins Avenue in the Art Deco District, home to the largest concentration of Art Deco architecture in the world.

A typical Miami city tour combines a stop in South Beach with a Biscayne Bay cruise around Star Island, an airboat ride in the Everglades, or visits to Little Havana, Wynwood, Miami Beach, and Coconut Grove. Choose a walking tour, a Segway tour, a boat tour, a food tour, or a bus tour according to your schedule and mobility. Architecture tours are conducted by the Miami Design Preservation League, among other operators, and stop at some of the most stunning architectural examples and the Art Deco Welcome Center.

Great tour!
James was a wonderful guide. He was knowledgeable and informative. His was humorous and very accommodating for the weather. He made sure we were in the shade out of the sun when he spoke to us.

Fun and Delicious!

South Beach Cultural Food and Walking Tour
My husband and I took this tour the other day with Gina. She was very knowledgeable and fun, and the food was delicious. We were so full afterward we could only eat a salad for dinner. Not only did we enjoy the food, but she shared a lot of interesting history about South Beach and we got to see the lobbies of several of the hotels we drove by. Highly recommended. Thanks, Gina!

Discover South Beach Golf Cart Tour
Dawn was our guide and being the only two in the cart we had her all to ourselves. We had a fantastic tour around South Beach due in full measure to Dawn's knowledge, humor and welcoming spirit. Learned much about the Art Deco buildings, South Beach history, recommendations on where to eat or drink, celebrity gossip and so much more. If we could give Dawn 10 stars we would.

South Beach Cultural Food and Walking Tour
Our tour host, Jennifer, was excellent. Intelligent, whitty, with great stories on the culture, history and architecture of South Beach. She made the tour special. Our first stop, Bolivar bar & restaurant, I would also rate as excellent. The next 3 stops were quite good ... just not up to the “Jenifer” standard. Would I recommend this to others: definitely.

How to Get There

Across the MacArthur Causeway from downtown Miami, South Beach stretches north from South Pointe Park all the way to 23rd Street. From Fifteenth to 23rd Street, the upper end includes the pedestrian thoroughfare of Lincoln Road and its associated shopping, eating, and nightlife, plus clusters of Art Deco buildings. Between First and Fifteenth streets is a quietly hip area that acts as a counterweight to the over-the top carnival of South Beach.

Indoor Attractions in South Beach

If you want to get out of the sun and away from the crowds, step inside the provocative World Erotic Art Museum, or visit the polar opposite Bass Museum of Art for a peek at 16th-century religious art. Venture out after dusk falls to see south Florida's nightlife come alive.
