The greater Miami Beach area has some of the best shopping in the entire country and there is hardly a name brand left out of the miles and miles of shops that cover a large portion of the colorful streets of Miami. If you’re already planning a visit to Miami Beach and looking for where to shop in Miami, you can’t miss the opportunity to stroll in the Southern Florida sunshine among the fashion savvy shoppers to score some great finds of your own.
Boardwalks filled with small shops, unique boutiques on every corner, and backstreets with hidden treasures call shoppers and tourists from miles around to shop for jewelry, books, clothing, handbags, housewares, sculptures and plenty of breaks for fine cuisine for every taste. One of the most appealing aspects of shopping in Miami is enjoying the welcoming climate and balmy air as you walk from store to store. Areas such as Collins Avenue and Ocean Drive are especially welcoming to those looking to enjoy an outdoor experience while they shop and the Art Center on Lincoln Road nearby is the home of countless local artist galleries and studio spaces for up and coming new artists.
If trendy fashion merchandise is more your style then South Beach is the place for you. Name brands such as Tommy Hilfiger, Kenneth Cole, Nicole Miller and dozens of others make their home in designer stores surrounded by various other stores selling fine chocolate, cheeses and wine.
If luxury shopping is more your style, the Bal Harbour Shops offer some of the most high-end shopping in the country and is home to famous European brands such as Giorgio Armani, Gucci, Jimmy Choo, Prada, Dolce & Gabbana, Tiffany & Co., Versace and so much more. Surrounded by luscious tropical landscaping and koi ponds mixed with large public displays of beautiful art, the Bal Harbour Shops are distinctively different from your typical mall shopping experience.
The Bayside Marketplace is more like a traditional mall shopping area though the views of the waterfront and the various street performances in the area add a special flair. With over 150 shops selling leather goods, crafts, memorabilia, jewelry as well as recognizable brands such as Victoria’s Secret, Gap, Nordstrom and more, this area is a great place to shop to enjoy the downtown cityscape.
