Chief among these are Lincoln Road, Española Way, and Washington Avenue, which each offers an eclectic mix of upscale and branded merchandise along with chic independent boutiques. From fine jewelry and clothes to organic food, there is something for everyone to explore on these pedestrian-friendly locales.


If you’re looking to expand your art collection, Lincoln Road hosts several studio spaces and art galleries provided by ArtCenter/South Florida. Explore these creative spaces in between your shopping and find a vast selection of unique art styles from South Florida’s growing local arts scene.


If you venture into the mainland leaving Miami Beach, you will find several more options, starting with Bayside Marketplace that is located just off of the A1A. Adjacent to Miami’s gorgeous bayfront, this outdoors bazaar offers a wide range of merchandise and great food to be enjoyed near the gorgeous waters and green spaces of the city. Aside from shopping and dining, visitors can also enjoy street performers and live music. Adjacent Bayfront Park is the ideal place to relax and take in the beautiful scenery.


Beyond Bayside, you can visit the beautiful and historic community of Coral Gables, whose Miracle Mile is a premier shopping street. With its beautiful Mediterranean backdrop and well-landscaped streets, you can find a wide range of bridal shops, clothing and jewelry boutiques, shoe stores, art galleries, and artisanal bakeries. As in South Beach, there are plenty of side streets and independent venues offering something new and unique to explore.

In addition to their world-famous clubs, bars, and lounges, each of these roads also offers a mix of retail and commercial venues, as well as street vendors and artisanal crafts along the beach.
