Stay off the streets and go to the beaches. Anything south of 10th and Washington is off limits at night.

This is a beautiful large beach for swimming, playing, people-watching or just getting a good tan. It is what made Miami Beach famous. A great place to spend the weekend.

The best place to stay in when in Miami, full of shops, Great Locations to have long walks and see what south beach has to offer.
