North Beach is a great option for someone looking to live close to the beach without breaking the bank. Here, you will find many mid-century hotels along with modern Miami apartment buildings. North Beach is famous for Miami modernism, or MiMo, a postwar style featuring flat roofs, acute angles, and curved walls.

Many residents walk to the beach or on the boardwalk almost every day. The recently renovated boardwalk now extends all the way from 1st St. on South Beach to 82nd St. on North Beach. You will always see many people jogging, biking, rollerblading, playing volleyball, and exercising at the outdoor gyms.

Fave spots

North Beach provides a prolific number of choices for Latin food. Here, you will find many locals hanging out at the Argentinian, Colombian, and Venezuelan restaurants, such as Moises Bakery, sipping on cafecito (Spanish for “coffee”) and enjoying some croquetas and empanadas with Latin music. Don’t miss El Rancho Grande for Mexican bites, Locura Marina for Peruvian food, and Manolo’s for Argentinian fare. Banchero is a special kind of Argentinian pizza that’s definitely worth a visit.

This area also has many good options for Italian cuisine (George’s, Cafe Prima Pasta), seafood (FiFi’s), sushi (Katana), and Chinese (East Ocean).

North Shore Open Space Park is another locals’ favorite with nice trails and native trees. It’s perfect for picnics, dog walking, and meditating.

Things to Know
