Contemporary yet historical, tiny but diverse, South Beach—Miami Beach’s long southern stretch down to its tip at South Pointe Park—commands hyperbole. South Beach is where Miami stereotypes come alive: Leggy supermodels, oiled-up athletes, hipsters, artists and every person in-between congregate along action-packed Ocean Drive. Though it’s not just a motley crew of tourists you’ll see ducking into the pastel-hued Art Deco buildings on the strip. A sprinkle of locals stock the sidewalk cafés, designer boutiques, Miami bars and dusk-to-dawn clubs that make South Beach such a special—and undeniably—weird place.
