Miami Beach is located on a series of barrier islands between the Atlantic Ocean and Biscayne Bay, the latter of which separates Miami Beach from the city of Miami. It has been one of the top beach resort destinations since the early 20th century. Other than the Florida Keys, Miami Beach has the warmest winter weather and ocean temperatures in the mainland United States.
The city of Miami Beach is made up of South Beach, Mid Beach and North Beach.
South Beach consists of the southernmost 24 blocks of Miami Beach. It is home to the South Pointe neighborhood, Ocean Drive, Casa Casuarina (former Versace Mansion), the Art Deco Historic District, Lincoln Road, famed nightlife and numerous cultural institutions. Festivals in South Beach include Art Basel Miami, the South Beach Food and Wine Festival, the Miami International Film Festival and Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Miami.
Mid Beach is the area of Miami Beach from 24th Street to 63rd Street. It is home to the Mid-Beach Boardwalk, the Collins Waterfront Architectural District, the Fountainbleu Hotel and the Eden Roc Resort. Festivals in Mid Beach include the Miami International Boat Show.
North Beach is the northernmost part of Miami Beach, bordered by 63rd Street to the south. It includes Biscayne Point, La Gorce and Normandy Isles.
Miami Beach is connected to the mainland by the MacArthur Causeway, the Venetian Causeway and the Julia Tuttle Causeway. Public transportation is readily available in Miami Beach. The city is also home to the DecoBike bicycle sharing system. DecoBike includes over 100 bicycle stations throughout Miami Beach from about 85th Street to South Pointe Park.
