Local Attractions in Miami's Famous South Beach
Surfcomer Hotel centers you in South Beach, a renowned destination unlike any other. It is a multicultural tropical paradise and international jet-set magnet.
Some come for the white sandy beaches and balmy ocean breezes. Some come for the culture. Some come for the amazing shopping and glamorous nightlife. Some, like us, want to taste it all. Our boutique Kimpton hotel gives you direct beach access and a luxurious pool scene for unrivaled sunbathing. We situate you in an unfussy Art Deco landmark within easy walking distance of top shops, theaters and nightclubs.
South Beach is famed for its celebrity hot spots, and the nightlife is absolutely world class. Most clubs stay open until 5 am, and the scene is everything you've heard about and more. Washington Avenue, Ocean Drive and our own Collins Avenue is where all the action is, though Surfcomber Hotel puts you at enough of a distance for a good night's sleep if you're so inclined.
South Beach is a fashionista's dream-come-true. Designer boutiques are abundant, and you'll be in good company with the models and celebrities browsing the multi-varied shops. The most popular shopping area is Lincoln Road, just down the block from Surfcomber Hotel. Lincoln Road turns into a pedestrian-only Art Deco promenade about three blocks from our hotel, and it's a South Beach highlight. The shopping is as fun as the people watching, and there are numerous cafes and restaurants where you can take a pause and enjoy another favorite South Beach activity-dining.
Other favorite nearby shopping destinations include:
- Espanola Way, just off Washington Avenue near 14th Street, featuring one-of-a-kind boutiques and a vibrant Sunday farmer's market
- Collins and Washington Avenues, between 5th and 10th Streets, for designer apparel
- Miami's Design District (about 4 miles away)
- Bal Harbour (about 8 miles from our boutique hotel)
South Beach is alive with arts and culture. From Michael Tilson Thomas' New World Symphony and the Fillmore Miami Beach to the Bass Museum of Art and the annual, internationally famed Art Basel Miami Beach show in December, South Beach is colorful and dynamic.
