Hello everyone, and Happy Holidays to all!

My wife and I will be vacationing in South Florida in about a month. We will be staying on Miami Beach, and will likely spend most of our days on the beach but we want to visit south beach as well. When would be the best day of the week to visit to avoid the crowds (i.e. bumper to bumper traffic, or is that just unlikely). We figure the weekends would be worse. We will be staying from Sunday to Friday. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks.

Any weekday will be about the same. There's a parking garage on 16th street that has reasonable per hour prices. Trying to find on street parking is impossible and there's no such thing as free parking in SoBe.

you really don't need a car while in SoBe....you can walk to most places or take the local 25 cent bus which does a loop around the island or use a free golf car taxi service that operates for tips (i.e. Swoop)...why not pick up the rental car the last day of your stay, as it sounds like you will be tieing in visits to other areas of SoFla. This way you don't need to worry about traffic--or were you referring to foot traffic?

I was referring to car traffic basically. We want to hit South Beach, and maybe have a cocktail or two at some of the hotel lounges, but wanted to avoid the crowds and car traffic if at all possible. It's sounding like its gonna be pretty unavoidable though, and if it is that's fine we will have a good time regardless. Thanks for the input guys!

Any suggestions on where to find the best Cuban sandwich?

I haven't tried it myself, but they seem to have a good reputation.

A Thursday night is prob the busiest night outside of Friday and Saturday.

Monday, Tues, Wednesday you should be fine as far as crowds go.

Depending on how far you're going to be from SB why not just rent a couple of bicycles?
