Miami Beach Boardwalk: Sightseeing, Restaurants and Nightlife
During your stay in Miami, be sure to make time for a visit or two (or three!) to the Miami Beach Boardwalk. Stretching about 40 city blocks from South Beach northward, the Boardwalk affords unparalleled views of the Atlantic Ocean. Stroll, bike or inline skate along. There are plenty of things to see, from extravagant beachfront properties to street artists and musicians.
When you need to take a break from soaking up all that Miami sunshine, choose from a wide array of restaurants, cafes and bars. Need to do some shopping? Lincoln Road Mall runs perpendicular to the Miami Beach Boardwalk. This pedestrian-only mall is about 10 blocks long. It's home to all kinds of awesome boutiques and shops like Banana Republic, 7 for All Mankind and BCBG Max Azria. There's also eclectic dining from French cuisine to American burgers, so you certainly won't go hungry. Ready for a bit of fun? Clubs and bars light up the night. For something a little different, try D' vine Hookah Lounge (the name says it all) or Segafredo L'Originale serving up to die for Italian cuisine and drinks. Soak it all up to the sounds of talented live bands.
The Boardwalk begins at Collins Avenue and 46th Street at Indian Beach Park. It becomes paved at 23rd Street down to 5th Street. There's some metered parking, or try one of the public lots along Collins Avenue. South end access is at 500 Ocean Drive.
