From South Beach to Coral Gables, Greater Miami’s best shopping streets each bring something unique to the fashion table.

If you’re looking to step up your fashion game, Miami offers numerous open-air shopping destinations for every style and taste. From glitzy South Beach to hipster-cool Wynwood and the high-end Miami Design District, to history-rich Coconut Grove and upscale Coral Gables, each location brings something unique to the fashion table. Here’s your guide to Greater Miami’s most famous shopping streets. When your feet start protesting, just head to a charming cafe or restaurant to recharge.

South Beach

Don’t miss strolling along the iconic Lincoln Road Mall. This pedestrian-only South Beach street is lined with numerous stores and restaurants. It’s an open-air shopping experience like no other, with striking art deco architecture, flowing fountains, lush landscaping and a constant parade of interesting people walking by. While the 10-block mall is always evolving with new shops, expect to find big names such as UK fashion brand Ted Baker, Zara, Macy’s, Anthropologie, lululemon and Aerie; on-trend favorites like Intermix and Scotch & Soda; and Alchemist, which is beloved by locals. Take a shopping break at one of the many sidewalk cafes, or sample fare at nearby food halls Lincoln Eatery and Time Out Market Miami. Lincoln Road is only a few blocks from the beach, so shop for a new bathing suit and then take a dip.

If you want to shop where the locals do, head to the fashionable Sunset Harbour neighborhood, which is lined with chic boutiques, fitness studios, restaurants and cafes. Stop in lingerie and swim shop Eberjey; try on the latest fashions at Shan, Frankie Miami and Sunset Clothing; or get a makeover at Gee Beauty. After shopping, celebrate your purchases by sipping java on the patio of Panther Coffee, then have a meal at longtime staple Icebox Cafe or a pizza feast at Lucali.
