    I enjoyed visiting Vizcaya - the house isn't exactly coherent in style, but it's definitely interesting. I enjoyed visiting the Fontainebleau Hotel as a James Bond fan. And you have to see the Art Deco District, which is just amazing. I purchased a Joan Crawford paper doll cutout book there that is a source of infinite amusement to me.

    Avoid the MoCA. I made a trek out to go see it, and it was just unspeakably awful. Total. Catastrophe.

    My first question is always: Miami or Miami Beach? Visitors constantly get those 2 different cities mixed up. One is on the ocean and has seashore beaches, the other does not. So where are you going?

    Maybe I should check out both but Miami was the plan so far. How far are they from each other?

    Approx. 2 miles, depending on where you are, and where you're going, maybe 3. Just Google map it and see for yourself. A vacationer usually wants Miami Beach, not Miami.

    I am not into the gay scene, but if you are you would want to stay in South Beach. There is plenty of action and it isn't too difficult to reach walking. It might be cheaper to stay downtown and just cab it to South Beach or Miami Beach. They are close to downtown. If you plan on shopping (most visitors do) then head out to Sawgrass Mills in Sunrise, which is an outlet mall with great designer stores, or you could go to Dolphin, but it's not as good. You should hit PF Changs for Chinese and Cheesecake Factory. Chipotle is pretty good too. Let me know if you want other tips.

    Awesome thanks for the tips. So you suggest the cheapest area to stay would be downtown Miami rather than Miami Beach??

    Any ideas for sightseeing?

    I'll counter that advice.

    When traveling anywhere, avoid shopping malls and giant corporate food factories (PF Changs, Cheescake Factory etc) where your experience will be indistinguishable from anywhere these cultural wastelands appear all over the planet.

    Instead, eat, shop, and experience all that is local.

    Wander. Be serendipitous. Make your own discoveries. Get a bike and travel the entire boardwalk and the spaces between from Miami Beach all the way to Ft Laud.

    And mos def, get naked with as many Cubans as you can.

    IguanaSF does have a point, but those recommendations are not really expensive and most foreigners enjoy them. I could also recommend Nobu (sushi) and blue (in the mandarins oriental), but they are way more expensive. There's Versailles for Cuban or Rick's Cafe. If you want to go shopping, the outlets are the place to go. I think downtown would be cheaper but i stay at my apartment when i am in the city. Sightseeing .... There's a alligator park, an aquarium, but the real tourism is sat. hĂșng. The excesses of the people in their expensive cars and designer clothes. Let me know if you need anything. I wish i could be there to hang with you guys but i will be working. Beijo,

    Note: South Beach is the southern section of the City of Miami Beach, not a town of its own. That's where the art deco hotels are located, the curbside cafes along Ocean Drive, and the best public beaches. Most online maps will identify the area, and may also label it as the "Art Deco District." That's the place you don't wanna miss.

    1. South Beach- Art Deco hotels, clubs, restaurants, beach, people watch, just enjoy the vibe.

    2. That's it. LOL

    death @ someone suggesting you go to pf changs, cheesecake factory and chipotle.

    gorl plz, those places are so basic and you can go to them anywhere in the country. check out some authentic hole in the wall, those are the best places.

    check out the fountainebleau hotel/night club if you get a chance.
