About Miami Beach

Miami Beach is located on a series of barrier islands between the Atlantic Ocean and Biscayne Bay, the latter of which separates Miami Beach from the city of Miami. It has been one of the top beach resort destinations since the early 20th century. Other than the Florida Keys, Miami Beach has the warmest winter weather and ocean temperatures in the mainland United States.

It is home to the South Pointe neighborhood, Ocean Drive, Casa Casuarina (former Versace Mansion), the Art Deco Historic District, Lincoln Road, famed nightlife and numerous cultural institutions. Festivals in South Beach include Art Basel Miami, the South Beach Food and Wine Festival, the Miami International Film Festival and Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Miami. - View more South Beach community information here.
