Or, simply hang out in the Living Room Bar or Grove for an aperitif or inventive cocktails under the moonlight at Wet Bar & Grille.

After you are settled in, discover the vibrant atmosphere South Beach is known for. As a legendary urban playground, explore the fashion hot spots of Lincoln Road and its al fresco shopping or famed Ocean Drive, brimming with antique shops, art galleries and pastel Art Deco architecture, as well as lively bars and cafe terraces. Then, after a sumptuous dinner, step out and celebrate the dazzling Miami nightlife with live music hot spots and endless entertainment opportunities.

Spend the day at Bayside Park, practice your swing on the golf course, speed across Biscayne Bay or explore the Everglades from an airboat. Check out the Bal Harbor Shops or Aventura Mall for a favorite fashion, or explore the exceptional museums and art galleries including Coral Gables, Miami Design District or Coconut Grove.
