Lying stylishly between Washington Avenue and Alton Road is the Lincoln Road Mall also known as Lincoln Road, where good times and great shopping happen every single day. An 8-block long pedestrian mall that thrives as a shopping and dining area, the Lincoln Road Mall is delightfully crowded always. Many items of great appeal, which ordinary malls do not possess, can be found here on this dazzling street, where many leading brands also take share in displaying their tempting merchandize. The mouth watering delights available at the many eateries and restaurants lure more crowds to the scene, as well as the many coffee shops that fringe the road.
The Lincoln Road is certainly one of the places that a visitor to Miami Beach must not miss. With the charm of the tempting maze of shops and restaurants that breathe out the wonderful Mediterranean appeal and the splendour of the water gardens as well as the botanical paintings makes this street a piece of art indeed. The people that flock on these streets surprisingly do add to the appeal of this street further with their striking appearances; hence people-watching takes up quite a lot of time of the ones who visit these streets.
The street was called to life by the legendary Carl Fisher, who was the wealthy original developer of Miami Beach. The road’s appeal is not strictly of commercial sense, architecturally too the area holds great significance with the Frank Gehry’s New World Symphony campus and park and the “1111 Lincoln Road” parking installation constructed by Swiss design firm of Herzog and De Mueron, structures of marvellous beauty, which stand proud adjacent to the Lincoln Road Mall.
When visiting a hotel in South Beach Miami, a little trip to the street must surely be added to your holiday diary. The delight of losing yourself in the maze of temptations will be equal to the pleasure of indulging in the sheer luxury of the accommodation in South Beach Miami. Hotels such as Metropolitan by COMO, Miami Beach, can be recommended to those who wish to experience the best of service standards in the area, to ensure that your holiday is truly a memorable one.
