Less than 20 minutes from Courtyard Cadillac Miami Beach Oceanfront, is Bayside Marketplace, 401 Biscayne Blvd, overlooking Biscayne Bay. Cruises and boat tours launch from here, and there are lots of retailers and dining options from which to choose. You'll find everything from big name brands like Guess?, the Limited and Bath & Body Works, to local souvenir shops with T-shirts, mugs and snow globes.
Restaurants and eateries range in cuisine and price. Some choices include Hamburguesa, a local Miami burger bar, and big names like the Hard Rock Café and Bubba Gump Shrimp, Co. Dine al fresco and take in the views of the downtown Miami skyline. The kids will enjoy riding the carousel, or how about getting a temporary tattoo? When the sun goes down, the nightlife heats up with al fresco cocktails and dancing to live music. Almost daily, there are live bands playing on the outdoor stage, which faces the Marina. Enjoy free music like salsa, rock and roll, jazz and reggae.
Paid parking is available adjacent at the Bayside Parking Garage. The Marketplace is open Monday-Thursday, 10AM -10PM; Friday and Saturday 10AM-11PM; and Sunday, 11AM-9PM. For more information on shops, restaurants and special events, visit the Bayside Marketplace website.
