Experience the Stimulating Nightlife of Miami Beach

Those planning a vacation in the incomparable city of Miami Beach, Florida, will be very pleased with what they find. From beautiful beaches, to historical landmarks and great dining and shopping, the city offers anything a traveler could desire. Miami Beach is also world-famous for a thriving, tireless nightlife, with clubs, lounges and bars for every taste and budget. Hotels are also available to please virtually any patron, such as our lovely Collins Avenue Hotel, a popular favorite among repeat visitors.

The Best of Both Worlds

Although the city of Miami and Miami Beach are technically separate cities, those traveling to the area for a vacation have the option of enjoying the best of both worlds. Miami, located on the mainland, is peppered with clubs, historical landmarks, state-of-the-art restaurants, and outstanding shopping opportunities. Miami Beach, situated in Biscayne Bay, is regarded by many as the American Riviera, with its pristine beaches, shady palms, warm, tropical sun, and of course, a boisterous nightlife.

Exciting Club District

The colorful club district of Miami Beach offers party-goers a wide selection of restaurants, nightclubs and lounges. Establishments are available to please essentially any budget or preference, and regardless of what kind of fare a person prefers, it is somewhere on the beach waiting to be discovered. Clubs are typically opened late into the night and if you do not wish to drive after a night of drinking and dancing, you can rest assured that plenty of public transportation options are available.

If you are looking for a stimulating nightlife that features a touch of Cuba, you should definitely visit Little Havana. This area offers an authentic Cuban ambiance against the stunning backdrop of the beach. Sumptuous food and the aroma of delicious Cuban coffee scent the air, and Caribbean steel drums and Latino dance beats are often heard echoing through the Coconut Grove district.

Wonderful hotels and resorts are available such as the aforementioned Collins Avenue Hotel , where a friendly staff is available to ensure that your vacation exceeds your expectations.

In the area's famous South Beach, you can cruise the strip and view impressive architecture, characterized by streamlined Art Deco structures, dance clubs, and Miami bars with unique designs. Dance clubs in the South Beach area are continuously seeking to outdo each other with their interior décor, top-notch DJs, and fashionable patrons which include wealthy tycoons, celebrities and famous media personalities.

In addition, a new era of clubs have appeared off the beach in Midtown Miami and the Design District. Most of the lounges and clubs on or off the beach feature multiple floors and rooms, complete with their own musical styles and themes so that you are never bored even if you spend the evening in only one club.

Regardless of your individual goals for your getaway, they can come true in Miami. However, it is always wise to make reservations at our Collins Avenue Hotel as soon as you know your travel dates to avoid being shut out. Ultimately, a visit to this stimulating and exciting area is the perfect way to create the memories of a lifetime.

Why Now is the Perfect Time to Enjoy Some Winter Sun in Miami Beach

It's that time of year when the wind bites hard and the snow falls heavy, lingering on the ground for weeks at a time. Though beautiful at times, this season can leave a little something to be desired.

Namely WARMTH. And beaches. And sun.

Luckily for you, there's Miami Beach!

During this time of year the rest of the country slows down, stays inside, and waits for a better time to come. Miami Beach on the other hand, is already at its best.

The city's subtropical climate allows for warmth year-round and temperatures tend to hover around the mid-70s throughout the winter months.

If that wasn't enough, winter also brings some of the best festivals and events to the city, making Miami a great place to be during the season. No need to stay inside.

Below are some of the best reasons to visit Miami Beach this time of year.

A Thriving and Diverse Culinary Scene

In recent years, Miami has solidly emerged as a city of culinary excellence. Whether you're looking for authentic Cuban food, fine dining, or fantastic cheap eats and diner fare, Miami has it all. The city's best dishes were once found in a few select spots, but great food can now be found throughout the city - all the way from South Beach to Brickell to Little Havana.

South Beach Wine & Food Festival
The South Beach Wine & Food Festival takes place every February and brings all of the culinary excitement of Miami into one star-studded event. Culinary celebrities such as Rachael Ray, Anthony Bourdain, and Martha Stewart are just a few of the celebrities that have attended the yearly event. Events, tastings, parties, dinners, and demonstrations fill the event's five-day span and make this one delicious celebration not to be missed.

Carnaval Miami and Calle Ocho Festival

Miami hosts numerous celebrations in February and March to celebrate Carnaval. The Calle Ocho Festival in Miami as well as its sister festival, Carnaval on the Mile in Coral Gables, draw huge crowds every year. The Calle Ocho Festival includes salsa dancing, Latin American and Caribean food, and a range of entertainment performances.

International Arts and Culture

In addition to the amazing food scene and the massive celebrations, Miami Beach is no stranger to the arts. Musuems such as The Perez Art Museum (PAMM) houses contemporary and modern art collections from around the world. The Miami International Film Festival (MIFF) comes to the city every winter, and serves as a major showcase of international, independent and documentary films.

The Beaches

Last but not least, the gorgeous Miami Beaches are still the heart of this amazing city. Popular spots such as the Lummus Park Beach and Haulover Beach are great for watching the ocean surf, or the people - models, body-builders, and other interesting characters populate spots along the white sand.

If you're looking for the perfect getaway from your mid-Winter blues, look no more. The warm climate, active community, festivals, and arts scene of Miami Beach may be just what the doctor ordered. Check out our great Miami Beachfront Hotel in order to fulfill the order!
