South Beach Miami is a trendy neighborhood sandwiched by the Atlantic Ocean and Biscayne Bay. Known for its playful vibe, South Beach is an emerging haven with beachfront residential and commercial properties that attract wealthy investors and residents.

The Neighborhood

Located east of the city proper, South Beach covers all the Miami Beach barrier islands south of the Indian Creek. It is the first Miami Beach section to undergo development in the early 1900s. The construction of the Collins Bridge connecting the Miami mainland to the beaches sparked the influx of residents and businesses in the area.

Once a farmland, the neighborhood of South Beach began many developments as early as 1912 when the Lummus Brothers acquired and converted 400 acres of land to an oceanfront city of single family homes. By 1930s, an architectural revolution occurred in South Beach.

Most of the homes follow Streamline Moderne, Nautical Moderne, and Art Deco architectural styles, but much of it were lost to developers before 1980. A cohesive unit of properties saved by the efforts of historic advocates and is now part of the National Register of Historic Places.

1989 saw the rebirth of commercial developments in the area, with a host of fashion agencies building their offices in South Beach. Today, South Beach is among the wealthiest neighborhoods in the area with many investors choosing to live in upscale condominiums worth millions.

South Beach has numerical streets running east-west, including South Pointe Drive, one block south of First Street, and the Lincoln Road that runs parallel between 16th and 17th street. The city also has 13 neighborhoods including City Center, Bell Isle, Di Lido Island, Flagler Monument Island, Hibiscus Island, Flamingo/Lummus, Rivo Alto Island, Palm Island, San Marino Island, South Pointe, Star Island, South of Fifth, and West Avenue Corridor.

South Beach is a go-to destination of tourists because of its proximity to the Miami International Airport and its easy access to the bustling neighborhoods of Miami Beach, Key Biscayne, and Coconut Grove.

While South Beach does not have any direct Metrorail stations, the residents have no problem going around the neighborhood with South Beach Local. The neighborhood also has access to Metrobus lines that connects them with the Metrorail and Downtown Miami.

Airport-Beach Express also brings commuters from the Miami International Airport to major South Beach points. Even these public transportation are available; most of the residents in South Beach go around the neighborhood by bicycle, motorcycle, walking, or roller blading.

The neighborhood is also home to a number of parks including Collins Park, Flamingo Park, Lummus Park, and South Beach Park to name a few.
