Default Feeling like South Beach...

Anyone been to Miami/South Beach? Suggestions or recommendations? I feel like planning a vacation there this summer. Never been to that part of Florida, or anywhere with truly crystal-clear blue water like that. I can do the trip for $2k probably, not too bad for maybe 4 nights. What's your favorite beach spot? I heard the NC Outer Banks are pretty damn nice and might be going there, as well, since my sister at Duke is having summer school out there and my family wants to visit her.

Let me check with some people I know in Miami and get back to you. Maybe I can put you in touch with a guy I know in that area.

I have been to Miami but it was on business so we did not spend a ton of time sight seeing. I do not know that I recommend going during the summer though. We went down at the end of August and it was absolutely brutal outside. It was so humid outside that your shirt would literally stick to your body within a minute or so after stepping outside.

The Outer Banks are definitely a nice place to go as long as you are looking for a low key atmosphere and looking to do some sight-seeing and enjoy the beach. It is basically the complete opposite of South Beach.

Is this the beginning of a drug deal?

Sweet, I'm down, I've seen "Scarface" a million times and know everything I need to know to become the next Tony Montana...

In all seriousness, good point about time of the year. Might wait until fall. But it's one of the places I want to visit most.
