Heads up! We’re working hard to be accurate – but these are unusual times, so please always check before heading out.
May 2019: We peppered the list with a couple of our favorite South Beach watering holes: Kill Your Idol, where the karaoke is like none other, Minibar, a tiny bar with loads of charm. One new very special addition to our South Beach guide that we’re quite excited for: Time Out Market Miami. We know we’re a little biased but we think you’ll agree with us when the doors finally open on May 9. We removed Art Basel Miami Beach from the list, but only temporarily. It will be back in the fall.
There are no shortage of things to do in South Beach—but finding things to do in South Beach that are actually, well, fun? That’s a little more challenging. Like any tourist-heavy area, the neighborhood has its share of underwhelming attractions. Sure, South Beach holds some of the best restaurants in Miami and the best bars in Miami. But it’s also home to some of the worst. You’ve got to be careful out there—especially if you’re looking for more things to do than just lay out at the beach (not that that’s a bad choice). So take a look at some of our favorite South Beach activities below. And see South Beach the right way.
