A beautiful pedestrian-friendly oceanfront community spanning only a square mile, nestled between Miami Beach and Bal Harbour, Surfside is a charming oasis that has it all.
Located in South Florida's subtropical paradise, the quaint seaside town has the Atlantic Ocean lapping against its eastern shore and the Intracoastal Waterway on its west.
It is also bordered on the south by North Beach and Bal Harbour in its north.
It is home to 5,677 residents as of the latest US Census.
From lavish resorts to down-home Jewish comfort food and sandy white beaches, Surfside is one of South Florida's best-kept secrets slowly unraveled by travel enthusiasts.
The neighborhood has a decidedly retro, small-town appeal.
Its main thoroughfare, Harding Avenue, is lined with old-timey facades, Jewish delicatessens, and synagogues.
Yet, on the flip side, Surfside is also home to one of the area's most lavish resorts, The Four Seasons Hotel at the Surf Club, built inside a 1930s-era club that once hosted the likes of Elizabeth Taylor, Frank Sinatra, and Winston Churchill.
Since its opening in 2017, Surfside has ceased to exist under the radar, and more people have discovered all this vibrant community has to offer.
So now, you're probably wondering, what's there to see in Surfside?
While the town is primarily an attractive residential neighborhood featuring multi-family condominium and apartment buildings, Surfside is also a bustling business district that features public art, award-winning restaurants, resorts, spas, and recreational facilities year-round.
For one, it has its mile of sparkling white sand beach, Surfside Beach, where locals and tourists enjoy the warm South Florida weather and a few fun outdoor activities.
The beach features tennis courts and recreational facilities and is a popular spot for concerts and entertainment.
Meanwhile, the town's shopping and dining district, Harding Avenue, highlights a large selection of bistros, pizza shops, and restaurants.
During winter, it also hosts an art and entertainment night every third Thursday of the month, where you'll see plenty of food trucks, live music, and entertainment along the street.
There's also a town community center that's all the rave, the Surfside Community Center.
Found on the ocean at 93rd Street, it accommodates the Surf-Bal-Bay Library, the Recreation Department, the Tourist Bureau, meeting rooms, an auditorium for shows and special events, an Olympic-size swimming pool, a toddler's pool, and public beach access.
The FREE famous hangout spot is open to any hotel guest in the neighborhood.
Art lovers visiting Surfside should walk a couple of blocks south on 93rd Street between Collins and Harding to see the "Tales of the Surfside Turtle Art Walk," the town's Art in Public Places initiative, where local artists created turtle sculptures to bring awareness to the loggerhead turtles that come to nest in Surfside.
Aside from the usual community spots, guests can also easily explore Surfside's surrounding areas, which include famous Miami tourist attractions like Bal Harbour Shops, Bal Harbour Beach, North Beach Oceanside Park, Haulover Park, Collins Avenue, Oleta River State Park, and more!
