Miami Beach, FL 33139
Welcome to everybody's favorite spot in Miami. South Beach refers to the area, as well as the beach itself (though its official name is Lummus Park). This was the first section of Miami Beach to start being developed in the early 20th Century, and in the 1920s the area really began to boom, and the 30s saw the construction of many of the art deco buildings South Beach is known for. But the area really became popular during World War II, when Miami Beach became a hub for the Air Force. Today, this is one of the most famous beaches in the United States. Don't forget to bring your hats, towels and tan lotions for a fun day in the sun. Just lounge about, check out the hottest fashion or watch the spring-breakers' glee! And when you're sick of the sun and sand, there are nearby restaurants, boutiques and spas to choose from.
