Miami Beach is such an incredible place to live. If not for the beaches, fine dining, world-famous shopping and musical atmosphere, certainly the never ending list of things to do and places to see should appeal to just about anyone with an adventurous spirit. Whether you're a rambunctious twenty-something trying to see everything there is to see or if you're an octogenarian who has seen everything and wants to relax in the sun, Miami Beach has anything and everything you'd need.
In case you were wondering, Miami Beach has three different beaches: Miami Beach, Mid-Beach and South Beach. Miami Beach and Mid-Beach share a quiet and natural characteristic. It extends from 46th Street all the way south to 22nd Street. These two connecting beaches are lined with private Miami Beach condos and some of the nicest Miami Beach homes. And then there's South Beach; surely you've heard of it. South Beach has a reputation for being fun, sunny and beautiful both naturally and culturally. South Beach has multiple identities. By day South Beach is a sophisticated tourist hub with posh South Beach condos and by night it transforms into one big party with clubs, bars and lounges lining its luminous streets.
Though the beaches are the main attraction of Miami Beach there's still plenty to do in the surrounding areas. For instance, those looking for educational enlightenment can visit one of the Miami area's many museums like the Miami Art Museum, Museum of Contemporary Art, Vizcaya Museum and Gardens, the Miami Science Museum and Miami Children's Museum.
The Miami Beach area also has a burgeoning gaming scene. Though there isn't much for gambling in Miami Beach, just short drive residents can visit the Seminole Hard Rock Casino, Dania Jai Alai, Miami Jai Alai, Gulfstream Horse Racing Park and Miccosukee Resort and Gaming.
