Visiting Miami for afternoon with 11 year old need advice.

chazzer Jul 1, 2013 06:19 PM

Visiting family north of Miami and promised my daughter that we will go into Miami Beach for an afternoon and visit the beach, do a little shopping and go out for Cuban food. Would like a good restaurant but need not be the best. More concerned about staying in one general area where I can find parking.

    If you are going to south beach, go to puerto sagua.

        No not yet, but if it is good, that is another option. However, puerto sagua fills the trifecta of being walking distance from the beach, with nearby parking lots and shopping. 1957 is a bit of a walk off the beach.

      Definitely Puerto Sagua.

        What about Abuela's in the old David's spot? Walkable from the beach and steps off Lincoln Road

          Never been. But still would do puerto sagua. Abuela's is 1/2 mile off the beach. Puerto Sagua is right near the beach and there is very good shopping on collins avenue right around Sagua.
