Hollywood stars, hot bodies, sun-drenched sand, deep Latin beats and a nonstop nightlife only start to ignite the hyper-hip Miami Beach vibe. No matter what you want out of an escape, you’ll find it here — remarkable restaurants, unforgettable clubs, dreamy shopping or lounge-y days by the pool -- all washed in neon and art deco whimsy. Although Miami Beach elevates and redefines crazy, sexy, cool, the local scene of Cuban baristas, Caribbean-infused street music and the nearby Everglades keeps this south Florida getaway wonderfully authentic.
