If you follow the barrier reef south of Fort Lauderdale, you come to Miami Beach, the coastal resort city in Miami-Dade. Miami Beach is located on a series of natural and man-made barrier islands between The Atlantic Ocean and Biscayne Bay. Biscayne Bay separates the Beach from Miami city proper.
South Beach (SoBe) fairly glitters with nightlife -all night long and all day long! It is trendy and quirky and just a fun place to be so it attracts the rich and famous and is recognized around the world as a good place to visit. It is by far the best known neighborhood of Miami Beach where you can enjoy the beach, historic Art Deco architecture, fine oceanside dining, and Haulover Park for fishing, tennis, golf and bicycle rides. It almost sucks the air out of Miami, Miami Beach and the rest of Dade county!
Miami-Dade visitors and residents have a wonderful array of places to go and things to do. Drive along Ocean Drive by the nationally listed Art Deco Historic District, Art Basel Miami Beach in December, the New World Symphony in the Gehry New World Center, art museums, The Dolphins and The Marlins, and you should not miss Viscaya, a European inspired Mediterranean villa in the heart of Miami.
All of Dade county is a wonderful mixture of old beauty and new splendor, the usual good and bad. A little drive south connects to Key West, another excellent place to visit. All of this not very far from Fort Lauderdale.
