South Beach, Miami, FL
Hundred-thousand-dollar cars, beautiful bodies, and glitzy style—everybody's showing off something on the South Beach strip. And the backdrop makes it all even more alluring: warm, turquoise water on one side and chic art-deco-style hotels and cafes on the other. Then there's the delicious melting pot of cultures that shows up in the music and food. A day on the beach is like an escape to another country. Best of all, the party lasts all night in South Beach's clubs and on its streets.
What to Do: Get in on a game of beach volleyball or rent a Jet Ski. One of the best values for sightseeing is Bike and Roll's Segway tour. For a break from the action, walk south on the beach to South Pointe Park and have a picnic or watch cruise ships sailing out to sea. From here the views of the city are great, especially at night.
