Destination South Beach

So you probably have heard of the world famous South Beach, being a destination not just for American travelers but for thrill-seeking party people from around the world. When people think of South Beach three things usually come to mind: beautiful weather, beautiful places and beautiful people.

During the day there is so many things to do it is hard to pick just a few. South Beach boasts some of the most spectacular beaches in the world with soft white sand and pristine blue oceans. After you dry off head to Lincoln road where you can expect to see many people performing at night and shopping that can rival Paris, 5th avenue in New York, and Rodeo Drive in California. Some of the more famous stores on Lincoln Road are D-A-S-H Miami run by Kim, Chloe, and Kourtney Kardashian, GUESS the flagship shop for the Marciano brand of contemporary sportswear, and Base which only plays distinct music from Ibiza. Not much of a shopper, no problem, the Miami City Ballet is a world-class ballet with many programs including favorites such as The Nutcracker and Romeo and Juliet.

As the sun falls, South Beach comes to life with neon lights and nightclubs opening their doors. SET Miami, which is on Lincoln road, is run by the elite Opium Group and is one of the top clubs in the country. The Opium Group also runs many other nationally acclaimed nightclubs including Mansion, Living Room, Mokai, Cameo, and Club Louis in the W Hotel.

Getting a little tired? Understandable but that should not stop you from staying in the ultra-plush hotels. Canyon Ranch Hotel and Spa, Epic Hotel, and the Hilton Bentley Miami are all top-rated choices that you will not be dissatisfied with.

Espanola Suites Lets South Beach Travelers Live Like a Local

As a longtime Miami Beach resident I have frequent visitors and guests and someone is always asking me for a recommendation on where to eat, shop, and of course where to stay. If you are a tourist traveling to South Beach for vacation or a local seeking a relaxing ‘staycation’ you have many options for accommodations. Miami has something for every budget and every lifestyle ranging from luxury high-rise hotel/residences to large all-inclusive resorts to quaint Art Deco style boutique hotels. Each one targeting and serving a unique audience with a specific set of requirements that will make their time away from home complete. One of my favorite places to send out-of-towners who will be in South Beach for more than a few days is Espanola Way Suites. This to me is one of the best ‘live like a local’ experiences South Beach has to offer.

Espanola Way Suites is located off the ‘strip’ in a lively, but intimate Spanish Mediterranean style village on Espanola Way and Washington Ave. From your balcony you can look down on the unique retail shops, restaurants and intimate cafes. It has been popular with the “bohemian” culture for many years because of the several artist lofts, design studios, theater productions and street performers that call the area home.

The area is historical, but the rooms are updated and modern. The furnished suites are spacious and fully equipped with everything you need for an extended vacation. Full kitchens heat up leftovers from dining out and all the tools if you decide to head to a local grocery store to shop and prepare your own meals.

You never have to worry about feeling crowded, there are only 12 suites in the hotel, ten of them are 1 Bedrooms and two 2 Bedrooms, giving it a real community feeling. The staff is very personable. They pay unique attention to your needs and you are treated like a resident, and not just as an overnight guest. You can truly live amongst the locals and feel a part of the vibrant Espanola community.

The beach is three blocks away and the shopping and dining of Lincoln Road is within steps. If you want to do more than relax you don’t have to go far. Each Saturday night people are literally dancing in the streets of Espanola to the music of local salsa bands. The nightclubs of Washington Ave. are nearby but not too close to that you will be disturbed by the crowds.

I definitely recommend Espanola Way Suites to those who want to know what its like to live in South Beach…everything is convenient and close but you still have privacy and amenities you need.
