We decided to visit Miami due to seeing it feature in various movies and TV shows. Burn Notice fueled my need to explore Miami. The city is one very much focused on beach culture. We stayed down South Beach, which is the main party strip in Miami. A car is needed to get around Miami successfully, as you will find yourself driving around and taking in the surroundings. The other option is to sit on South Beach and absorb the Sun.
Apart from the beaches and the beautiful views driving across the bridges to South Beach, I cannot say there was much more to do in Miami. There is the equivalent of Hollywood Bld, but that it is much more quiet in comparison – almost a ghost town. To make the most of Miami, you need to hit the beaches by day, and clubs by night.
