We stayed at The Edition, which is a five star hotel. The hotel and location did not disappoint. Right on the beach and could walk everywhere. We hired a car but only used it when going to the outlet mall.

Loved Collins avenue, a lot of streets, restaurants and shops! you can go from here to Lincoln Road with the Miami Trolly for free, take the blue one and if you have doubts, ask the driver, they're nice and kind people

If you are into partying and nightlife, you will enjoy it. This is not a kid friendly place. Seems like every other store is tobacco or alcohol related.

Fun to take a walk when the neon signs are lit. In October the streets were not busy. I was more comfortable walking with my husband than alone.

There are many great shops and cafes, it is always so colorful and lively. You need to walk down the collins avenue.

Collins Ave is just one block away from South Beach or Ocean Drive. Just about every shop or kind of food can be found here. Very pedestrian and bicycle friendly.

There are affordable restaurants in the area. I'd check with your hotel concierge for suggestions on restaurants within walking distance that are in your price range.
