BEST PLACE TO PEOPLE-WATCH
Lincoln Road Mall
Between 16th and 17th streets on Lincoln Road in Miami Beach
Lincoln Road Mall may be grossly overrun with chain retail stores (Banana Republic, H&M, Apple), but the shoppers are far more interesting than anything for sale on the open-air, mile-long strip. You’re as likely to see America’s next top model strolling along Lincoln Road as you are someone wearing the last “Frankie Says Relax” T-shirt on the planet and not giving the slightest of damns if you don’t like it (or do). The air here sings with a symphony of accents, and tourists and locals alike can be seen from morning to night peacocking and preening over their good fortune to be alive, in South Florida and a fabric in the rainbow quilt of humanity.
