If you’ve got it, you flaunt it at South Beach.
South Beach has a similar “vibe” to Santa Monica and Venice beaches in Los Angeles.
I love the art deco architecture. This neighbourhood was “a crime-ridden collection of crumbling eyesores populated primarily by drug-crazed lunatics” in the 1980s.
Surprisingly, I loved Miami. Loved the diversity. There is no better people-watching anywhere.
Amazingly the traffic is quite light (if you stay off the Ronald Reagan Turnpike).
I’ve never seen so many beautiful women in one place. Some are on the South Beach Diet: caffeine, cocaine and cigarettes.
American Airlines Arena, home of the Miami Heat. I saw my first NBA game (US$10). Shaq was still lumbering back and forth.
