South Miami is alluring to locals and tourists with its gorgeous parks, fun downtown, historic buildings, charming shops, and unique restaurants. And despite its continued development that has helped set South Miami apart from other nearby areas, it is still known to retain its "small-town" feel. The area is known as Miami's "Little Sister" because of its similarities to Miami, including its famed downtown area, lively entertainment, and fashionable shops.
Dining, Entertainment, & Shopping
Regarding dining, entertainment, and shopping, South Miami is filled with beautiful, open-air locations with incredible shops and diverse dining options that are ideal for any mood and palate. For starters, consider going to The Shops at Sunset Place or nearby Dadeland Station to find any style, outfit, or accessories you need. However, if you are looking for the ultimate places to eat that will make your taste buds celebrate, check out Casa Cuba, Cracked by Chef Adrianne, Root & Bone, Old Lisbon, The Salty Donut, or Tea & Poets.
