Hi,

I'm visiting the Miami area in two weeks and wondered what the area NE 110th FL was like? Is this area classified as N.Miami? From what I've read, this area ain't too great? Any nice beaches around here?

Aventura is really nice (country club, golf, excellent spa, shopping) but it is further north (NE 176 street is the southern border)

You are going to be nearer to Miami Shores (if you are on the mainland), which also has a golf and country club

As for beaches, head north to 125 street or south to JFK Causeway (about 82 street) then east across the bridges. This will put you on the island with Bal Harbour (very upscale) and miles of white sand beaches. Back on the mainland at 151 street east of Biscayne Blvd is the Oleta River state recreation park, too.

I believe that NE 110th street is in Biscayne Park. It's a quiet nice little area in the between Miami Shores & North Miami.

I see, so some of NE 110th is on an island?

Mel - Thanks the beach info. So these beaches on Bal Harbour can only be accessed by the route you've given. As a Euorpean, I generally wear speedo briefs on the beach, but someone told me Americans frown down upon that kind of beach wear - I know it's a dumb question, but is this true? Obviously, if these beaches are upscale I don't want to offend the locals.

No, not an island. It's in a municipality (city) between 2 other municipalities (cities) on the mainland.

Default Be Aware Of Commute To Miami!

If you want to move to Aventura i suggest you start thinking about your commute to downtown Miami. It's a long drive without traffic- probably 25-30 minutes and isn't easy! i95 in south florida is infested with aggressive drivers and the roads are huge in florida!

Over all aventura is a lovely down, nice and close to fort lauderdale and the beach

That street (N.E. 110th) is part of the Miami Shores neighborhood. It is a really neat area with waterfront properties and it is aggressively patrolled by police because it is surrounded on three sides by questionable, iffy, and downright scary areas. There are also a lot of pre white flight families still holding out in this area.

North of here is Sans Souci Estates, on the bay. It is a big neighborhood that is also gated. The houses and the people who live in them are very similar to the ones in Miami Shores. However, Sans Souci has walls and gates so I would assume the real estate there is more valuable.

Default Speedos on the beach

But nobody answered his question about Speedos! As far as I know, straight guys in Miami do not usually wear Speedos, they wear long, baggy swim shorts.

Nobody cares about speedos in Miami, heck, a lot of people wear them. It's 1/2 Latin where you'll be going to the beach, and there's a nude beach on the northern side of Haulover Park (on Collins and about 158th), so people won't be worried about speedos there.

First of all, never worry about offending snobs when you're in a public place.

Miami Beach is full of European tourists and residents, so Speedos are a common sight. It is true, though, that in the U.S., straight men generally wear baggy bathing suits, and it would be considered pretty weird to wear a Speedo if you were swimming in a lake in Missouri. If you want to attract an American girl, though, you'll want to go baggy (unless you look like Enrique Iglesias -- then it doesn't matter what you wear).
