Miami, Florida

If you're planning a getaway to Miami Beach, grab your bathing suit and shades, your best club clothes - perhaps even a suit - and get ready to have a great time. From fast cars and hot clubs, to drag queens and Latinas, South Beach Miami is just wild and crazy enough to guarantee a good time.

Chill out on the beach, try the exotic eateries, and take a nap to prepare for a long night out. Make sure you have a date if you want to go clubbing because most clubs won't let in a group without girls. Dress to impress! It makes a difference.

South Beach, surf capital of Miami, certainly lives up to the stereotype: Surfers catching waves in a turquoise ocean, models sauntering along golden sands, and roller bladers gliding down Ocean Drive. Hyper-tanned celebrities rub oiled shoulders with hipsters in sidewalk cafés, designer boutiques, lounge bars, and dusk-til-dawn clubs.

Visit Little Havana for a taste of Cuba. Or stop by the trendy Lincoln Road Mall. Miami has something for everyone!
