One of America's most stylish neighborhoods, Miami's South Beach is where chic and sunshine meet. It's also where sand-starved travelers go to fill up on art, architecture, fashion and fun-starting at the beach. Flanked on one side by Ocean Drive, home to Miami's trendiest restaurants and clubs, and on the other by the Atlantic Ocean, the beach stretches north more than seven miles from South Beach toward Bal Harbour and is the ideal place to sunbathe or swim. If you really want to get out on the water, though, consider taking an Island Queen Cruise for a guided boat tour of Miami's coastal treasures. Ask your hotel for a coupon-most local hotels offer them-and board the boat to see spectacular views from Biscayne Bay of downtown Miami, Fisher Island and Miami's string of celebrity-studded islands, collectively called "Millionaire's Row," where the likes of Gloria Estefan and Oprah Winfrey own mansions.

Miami's most famous mansion, however-the Versace Mansion (1116 Ocean Dr.)-is located back on land, where it's one of South Beach's most photographed landmarks. Along with the area's signature Art Deco district, it's worth seeing on your way through town toward Lincoln Road, a unique pedestrian mall that's packed with bars, sidewalk cafes and art galleries, as well as dozens of shops that easily make it Miami's best place for shopping. The stores are open year-round, but if you're lucky, you can catch some of Miami's seasonal attractions, too. The area hosts numerous music-, comedy-, fashion- and art-themed festivals throughout the year. The food fests, however, are the most popular, particularly the South Beach Wine & Food Festival, held over four days each February to showcase the world's best culinary creations. It's the perfect place to taste all South Beach.
