“Travel can be one of the most rewarding forms of introspection.”
The quintessential Spring Break destination, South Beach is packed with bars, bikini boutiques, and clubs catering to hard-partying college students. Ocean Drive is also the heart of SoBe's Art Deco District, which draws architecture and history enthusiasts alike. At night, partiers flock to the famous nightclubs along Washington Avenue, the source of SoBe's nonstop buzz. During the day, visitors hit the open-air mall on Lincoln Road and shops lining Ocean Drive. South Beach is the main waterfront attraction, but local beaches also include predominantly gay and lesbian 12th Street Beach and clothing-optional Haulover Beach. The perennial party atmosphere of South Beach provides a fitting home for the World Erotic Art Museum. Visitors looking for a more traditional cultural experience can explore the Bass Museum of Art or the Jackie Gleason Theater.
