When You are Over 50 You Should Go to South Beach in the Morning

Share with Friends

After eating a ridiculous amount of food at LaVeinte we needed to do some walking. The next morning we headed to South Beach!

Usually, South Beach was reserved for girls trips during my 20’s for bachelorette parties. It has been a long time since I have been into that scene. It was nice to be able to see the streets during the day instead of being huddled up by the pool after a night out.

There was a lot to experience including shopping, great bakeries and coffee.

The streets were virtually empty at 10 AM. By noon the streets were much busier with tourists walking the streets to go shopping and view the uniqueness of the architecture in South Beach.

This is why South Beach in the morning is perfect.

Fresh coffee, gorgeous pastry, while the town is just waking up with little foot traffic. The best part?

It is not blazing hot yet!


Enjoy our photo tour of South Beach!

The Delano and other great hotels! 




The Delano is amazing inside. If you ever get the chance take a stroll through. This was my favorite place to hang out in the 90’s!

South Beach was nice in the morning. There were very few people out but the shop owners were busy getting ready for their day. Let me know about your experiences there in the comments!

    This looks like really the perfect place for coffee in the morning. Looks so European!

    I agree, South Beach is much more than clubbing into the early morning… although there is that too lol

    I have just started to venture out by myself in the mornings before everyone wakes up with their demands. It is so true, so much to see and it is so much prettier before all of the people arrive. The lighting for the pictures is fantastic as well and yours are great. I am headed to 50 in 6 months, so I totally get wanting to see things without the crowds. Love this post.

    I like seeing a place where palm trees are the norm. We have more pines trees up here, and it is a treat to see something different sometimes.

    South Beach looks lovely. The beach looked very inviting.

    It’s really a wonderful feeling when you can visit a popular spot like that when it’s not crowded. You get a change to see things you would have never noticed before.

  33. Pam Avatar

    I love this! As an early riser, I’d be right there with you walking the streets enjoying a delicious cup of coffee!

    I’ve always wanted to visit South Beach, I’m just not that “hip”. Thank you for sharing all the wonderful things to see and do in the morning.
