Miami Beach offers flagship restaurants and ultra-exclusive nightclubs—but the locals have a vibrant daily culture of their own.
Many of Miami Beach’s flagship restaurants and ultra-exclusive nightclubs are located in the central areas around Collins Avenue, Washington Avenue, Lincoln Road, and Ocean Drive. There, you’ll find the South Beach experience, complete with lavish dining and nightclubs like LIV at the Fontainebleau. However, most locals eschew this in favor of sunrise jogs along the boardwalk at South Pointe Park, a day on the beach, and dinner at one of the smaller (yet more imaginative) joints. South Beach is also home to some major cultural institutions, such as The Fillmore live music venue on 17th and the Miami Beach Convention Center.
