First trip ever to Miami/South Beach from WI. Enjoyed the sunset in South Pointe Park, and strolling Ocean Drive after dark on the east side of the street--agawk at the cool neon! Versaci's huge old place seems creepy at 1102 Ocean Dr. Wet Willie's seems like a wild nightclub, but we don't drink. Best meal of the week (spent $500 on just food alone that week) was the paella at Primetime at the Waldorf Towers at 8th & Ocean. Great view from the porch table above the sidewalk. Excellent lobster, great meal value for $59. Sergio the waiter was fun/cocky at Les 2Fontaines--dessert there so-so. Found the Art Deco Preservation Society Museum interesting, but glad we got out of the area just as the spring breakers were arriving, making it bummer-to-bumper traffic for blocks! Loved the topless cuties scattered on the beach!
Pros: People watching, Classic architecture, Perfect weather
Cons: , expensive meals, disinterested waiters
