You could easily spend your whole day on Lincoln Road.
We receive emails all the time from visitors who have about 24 hours to blow either before or after a cruise vacation from the Port of Miami. If you find yourself in this very good predicament, here are a few suggestions:
1 – grab an Uber or Lyft and head across the causeway to South Beach
2 – checkout South Pointe Park and Pier. Located on the very Southern tip of Miami Beach.
3 – Eat lunch at Joe’s Stone Crabs (a Miami institution for more than 100 years). The restaurant is only open during Stone Crab season which runs from mid-October to mid-May. The place is busy but definitely worth the wait!
4 – Hit the beach – take a stroll along our turquoise waters and white-
sand beaches or rent a lounger & umbrella and kick back a while.
5 – Visit Ocean Drive – no trip to South Beach would be complete
without exploring the neon signage and art deco architecture on
6 – Lummus Park – you could easily spend a few a hours at this beachfront park. Located along Ocean Drive from 5th to 15th streets, Lummus Park is one of the most popular destinations in Miami Beach. (fun stuff: beach volleyball courts, rollerblading, jogging and people-watching).
7 – Stop at David’s Cafe Cafecito (919 Alton Road) – for real Cuban coffee and pastries.
8 – Espanola Way is a slice of Europe in South Beach (cobblestone streets, sidewalk cafes, and restaurants offering Spanish, French or Italian, and Cuban cuisines.
9 – Grab a Citibike and cruise all over South Beach
10 – Visit Lincoln Road – Lincoln Road is world-famous for great shopping, trendy sidewalk cafes & restaurants, and people-watching all in the heart of South Beach. Open only to pedestrian traffic; the mile-long promenade bustles with bag-toting tourists to relaxed locals and everyone else in between.
11 – Sunset Drinks at the Juvia Rooftop – Juvia is an indoor/outdoor restaurant & lounge glamorously perched high above Lincoln Road. Their well-crafted cocktails pair well with the amazing sunsets and spectacular South Beach views. (1111 Lincoln Road)
