But the thing is, the sun, sand, and its glittering nightlife are not all of what South Beach offers.
While the beach is, indeed, the neighborhood's biggest draw, South Beach also offers the opportunity to connect to history and art, a perfect combo to the village's small-town lifestyle.
For one, Lummus Park is a ten-block stretch bisected by the winding Beach Walk and bordered by the Atlantic Ocean on one side and iconic Ocean Drive on the other.
A park known to many as an urban oasis for its vivid blue ocean and miles of white sand, Lummus Park also boasts walking tours focused on Miami Beach’s Art Deco and MiMo architectural styles, led by the Miami Design Preservation League’s Art Deco Welcome Center.
Another famous historic spot is the Jewish Museum of Florida, the only museum dedicated to more than 250 years of Florida Jewish history, arts, and culture, with a growing collection of more than 100,000 items.
The famous museum lies in two restored historic buildings that were synagogues for Miami Beach's first Jewish congregation built in 1929 and 1936, respectively.
Indeed, one can say that there is much to discover and fall in love with at South Beach apart from its carefree, luxurious aura and its stretches of sandy white beaches.
