Lay of the Land

Miami is feeling more and more like a world-class city, thanks to a revitalized urban core and neighborhoods with distinct personalities.

Miami Beach: South Beach, with its Art Deco buildings and heady nightlife, takes up the lower tip of this barrier island; farther north are the quieter high-rise hotels and condos of Mid-Beach and the luxury cocoon of Bal Harbour.

Downtown: Cultural and sports venues have given the financial district a shot in the arm. Just south, the Brickell area hums with residential and shopping developments.

Wynwood/Design District: Proof that Miami’s center of gravity is shifting away from the beach: these twin neighborhoods just north of Downtown are popping with new stores, restaurants, and galleries.
