Top 5 Shopping Spots in North Beach
Shake up your peaceful beachside vacation with a SPLURGE-WORTHY shopping rendezvous around North Beach's tranquil sandy stretches, and discover a DIFFERENT side to the famed Miami shopping experience!
Occupying the northernmost section of Miami Beach (hence, its name) is North Beach, a community collectively referring to the Isles of Normandy, Biscayne Point, and La Gorce, roughly bounded by 63rd Street and Indian Creek Drive to the south and 87th Terrace to the north.
Unlike the Miami Beach majority, North Beach is mostly residential, receiving fewer tourists annually.
But before you get the wrong idea, North Beach is far from a SLEEPER community!
Albeit the complete OPPOSITE of flashy and glamorous South Beach, North Beach retains Miami Beach's vibrant and eclectic aura but with a more culturally diverse population and a heavy emphasis on small, local gems when it comes to shopping and dining.
So, if you're looking to level up your relaxing beachside rendezvous, a UNIQUE shopping trip around North Beach is A MUST, especially if you're looking to shop LOCAL!
While being MOMENTS away from some of the BEST Miami shopping destinations, of course!
