Default anyone else here ever been to Miami Beach?

As I sit here in 4 degree chill, I can't help but get angry when I watch ESPN and see all those lucky *******s in south beach soaking up the sunshine. Man, I love that place. I went there for Spring Break in '04 and '05. I'm not even THAT big of a party guy. I just love the beaches, the women, the car the food, and the overall "flavor" of the place. While I love the three main streets (Collins, Washington, and Ocean), I would say my favorite is Ocean. It has a pretty sweet Fat Tuesdays, the Clevelander, and some pretty awesome restaurants (Johnny Rockets and TGI Fridays were the only ones I could afford, though). Overall, I am amazed at how late the action carries on until. It was just as busy at 5 a.m. as it was at midnight. For those who have been there, what do you like/dislike about Miami Beach? Where were some of your favorite places?

Yeah I almost moved down there until reality hit in. Its just a place to travel and spend some time there. It can get old. I go there for 2-3 weeks every year in the summer. Might be going to Ft Lauderdale in mid march. Havent decided.

agreed. I wouldn't want to live there, either. I think the noise and commotion would get old after awhile.

Family lived there they said it never gets old, but you gotta have the dough to live there, ain't cheap. That's why most of us live with the snow.
