    I wish I had a chance to explore more of Miami. I've heard great things about the culture and the food. Instead I kept my trip limited to South Beach and felt partied out once I got home. Miami can be a little exhausting!

    Includes North Miami Beach and Downtown. Culturally you can't beat it and the beaches are plentiful, it's like being in the Caribbean without all of the travel.

    Important to remember that Miami Beach is not the beach of the City of Miami; the two totally disconnected cities are separated by Biscayne Bay and about 7 miles apart. If you're staying in Miami Beach, you won't need a car. The hotels (most located on the beach), cafes, restaurants, shopping and clubs are within walking distance. For a hotel, I recommend hotels starting in the 1600 block of Collins up to the 2200 block; if the address of the hotel is an odd number, then the hotel faces the Atlantic and is beachside. Before booking, check to see if the hotel offers free shuttle service from the Miami International Airport. That will save you about $40.00 each way.

    Plenty of shopping in the immediate area, especially Lincoln Road (known as the "Fifth Avenue of the South"). Also on Collins at the intersection with Lincoln Road is a great French-style cafe with great pastries and lunch items.

    Hotels located from 5th to 15th Street on Ocean are older, smaller, boutique-type hotels. The area is crowded and noisy late into the night.

    If you stay in Miami, I'd recommend the Design District for night life. The area is about 10 blocks from the center of downtown Miami. The bars and clubs here are popular among Miami residents who shy away from the tourist traffic in Miami Beach.

    My favorite area is Coconut Grove just south of downtown Miami. On Biscayne Bay but there are not beaches here. Great little shopping area, some art galleries and sedate night life. Very popular among University of Miami students; the campus is about 3 miles away.

    Couldn't live here...but great place to visit. Try to go when you're young and single as that is the scene here. Lots of young people getting crazy with loads of dispensable income. Enjoy while you can.

    Miami is great! I mostly explored Miami Beach (central) and some nearby town, but I look forward to returning and checking out more of the city.

    Miami is a city I really adore. I like it for its colours, climate, relaxed atmosphere, beaches, restaurants, hotels. I've been several times, but I enjoy going back again and again. I like it for its capability of renewing and creating new attractive areas.

    In 2008 Dale and I spent the 3rd week of December in Miami, very nice to see all the Palm trees lit up with Christmas lights even though it was like 75 degrees.
