The area “South of Fifth” in Miami Beach is home to the iconic South Point Park.

South of Fifth is also known for the luxurious condominiums and excellent selection of fine restaurants and cafes. Joe’s Stone Crab is the oldest restaurant in Miami Beach and has been in the same location at 11 Washington Avenue since 1913!
The Miami Beach Walk is a series of wide sidewalks and some boardwalks, which stretches from South Point Park all the way north to Haulover Park. It passes through mid Beach, North Beach, and Surfside and accommodates bicycles, walkers, and runners.
Ocean Drive between Fifth St and 15th St is home to the impressive Art Deco District where the Deco Preservation League monitors the maintenance of this historic area. Many smaller Art Deco style buildings can be found west of Ocean Drive in South Beach and offer smaller properties for year-round residents as well as “snow birds” who enjoy the winters in Miami Beach.
