People watching is a great pastime in Miami's South Beach, which draws celebrities and beautiful people in skimpy swim attire to see and be seen. The wide and fine, white sand-covered beaches are popular spots for fashion photo shoots, so you're sure to see models. The area is known for its hip clubs and wild nightlife as well as numerous excellent restaurants.

the art deco architecture goes on for many blocks, and has been beautifully restored; most of the restaurants aren't great (cater to tourists), but the scene is one-of-a-kind
