What makes Miami beautiful, from the bodies on the beach to the structure of the skyline, is diversity. Every neighborhood has its own stereotypes and its own exceptions to those rules. This is true of the city’s stretches of sand, too. Yes, South Beach is where the pretty people are, but they’re gawked at by seething mobs of tourists. North Miami Beach is where real people live. Windsurfers should head to Hobie or Virginia Key beach and for a view over all of Miami’s many beaches helicopter tours take off from Watson Island – connected to downtown Miami by the MacArthur Causeway.
Unfortunately, my wonderful memories of our week on Miami Beach have lasted much longer than the wedding did.
We went to Miami Beach on Memorial Day Weekend. It was crowded, lots of people and cars, loud music. Not a nice place to bring the family. You will defenitely see a lot of half naked women! The beach was beautiful, clear water and very warm during that time. However, when I went to use the bathroom, bad idea! The public toilets were hurrendous. The toliets did not flush, but people used them anyway (disgusting) since they were the only toilets around. There were always many homeless people so if youre a young girl in a bikini, I suggest you not walk alone. This was on Ocean Drive, just off the beach.
Now the art deco buildings were beautiful, the old hotels especially!
No trip to Miami is complete without visiting one of our beautiful beaches.
