Newly emerging as a chi-chi destination because of its fab hotels set in historic Art Deco-era digs renovated in inimitable style, what's being termed Mid-Beach encompasses a stretch north of Lincoln Road and south of the John F. Kennedy Causeway. Such design-forward resorts as the Delano, Fountainebleu, and Eden Roc make this the place to be seen, and their restaurants have the glam cuisine to match. The strip of reinvented historic structures are also known for their spas. Outside the hotels, besides gorgeous beaches, the immediate area offers cultural stimulation in the form of the dramatic Holocaust Memorial, Wolfsonian Art Museum, convention center, and Jackie Gleason Theater. Here you can be within minutes of the famed South Beach scene sans the bustle and pedestrian elements. To the north lies another world of North Beach's kayaking and nude beach and the famed shopping and golfing beyond.
