The 6 Best Spots to Spot Celebrities in Miami

Are you set on becoming a future star, or just want to see where your favorite celebrities hang out? Whatever the case, read this guide to Miami to find out not only where you can spot them, but also what else this bustling city in South Florida has to offer.

The Best Spots to Spot Celebrities

Many stars, including Gloria Estefan, Matt Damon, Shakira, Phil Collins and Pharrell Williams have homes in Miami, and others are frequent visitors. Want a good chance at seeing them? Visit these places.

1. South Beach

When thinking of popular beaches, there’s nothing like South Beach. You never know who you’ll spot from under some oversized sunglasses or under your umbrella. Ocean Drive is also right near nightclubs and performance spaces that the stars frequent.

2. Luxury Hotels

The Setai, the Shore Club and the Ritz-Carlton South Beach are trendy and perfect for those who need the finer things in life. Pull up a chair by the pool, lounge and gossip in a café or crash in a room that your favorite star may have stayed in.

3. The Shops that Ooze Luxury

Those with expensive tastes flock to Bal Harbour Shops, which includes stores like Gucci, Prada, Versace and Tiffany and Co. Even if you don’t see anyone of note, at least you can look like one!

4. Hot Restaurants

Celebrities need to eat, too! Hotel restaurants, like Terrazza and Thompson Miami Beach, and other establishments, like Tua and Azul, are packed with those looking to eat food that’s healthy and tasty. Take a look at who’s dining around you, and you may be surprised.

5. Nightclubs

It’s so secret that famous people like to party and have a good time. Bust a move at Wall’s Faleva Dance Party, E11even Rooftop Miami, or any of the other clubs in the area, alongside people you’ve only seen in movies, on magazine covers and on TV.

6. Star Island

If you can’t find anyone while looking in tourist hotspots, go to where they are. Many mansions are located in the Star Island neighborhood. Should you get invited to a party, maybe you’ll literally see stars.

Other Things to do in Miami

There’s so much more to Miami besides spotting celebrities. Art lovers will be interested in the Vizcaya Museum and Gardens, the Wynwood Walls and Art Basel. Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park and Bayfront Park are great for nature lovers. If you’d rather get some shopping in at more moderately priced stores, Bayside Marketplace offers many places at which to browse and eat. Animal enthusiasts will want to stop at Jungle Island and the Miami Seaquarium. Catching a sports game and cheering on your favorite team is an option as well. The options are numerous in this modern, cosmopolitan city.
