Top 5 Shopping Spots in South of Fifth (SoFi)
Don't hold back and let your WILDEST shopping urges LOOSE on the tranquil sands of South of Fifth, a serene oasis on the vibrant stretches of SoBe, hailed as one of Miami Beach's best-kept secrets!
Say hello to South of Fifth, fondly called by locals as SoFi, a community occupying the southern tip of Miami Beach, stretching southward from 5th Street to the bayfront at beautiful South Pointe Park, and wedged between the Atlantic Ocean, Biscayne Bay, and Government Cut.
Amidst the continuous stimulation found further north, SoFi retains its relaxed and peaceful vibe with its stretches of white, sugary sand, turquoise water lapping the shore, and tall palm trees swaying in the breeze alongside impressive high-rise condo towers, low-rise residences, and restored Art Deco buildings at every corner — certainly not what you'd expect from SoBe neighborhoods!
But let me get ONE thing straight —
Despite its low-key vibe, South of Fifth is not one to dismiss when it comes to an all-around Miami Beach experience, thanks to its easy access to South Beach's creature comforts — including the diverse shopping spots IN and AROUND its perimeter!
