It’s the little town just down the road from Miami Beach. And just like its neighbour, Surfside is an island city connected to the Miami mainland by bridges. Oh, and when they say small town, they mean it. Surfside covers an area that is no more than one square mile, or approximately 2.5 square kilometres. It has 11 streets that run parallel to the beach, nine cross streets, and a population of about 5,800, according to census estimates for 2016, the latest year for which statistics are available. Surfside is immediately north of the town of Miami Beach and just south of the shopping hub in Bal Harbour. It markets itself as “Miami’s uptown beachtown.” With about a mile of oceanfront, Surfside is designed to cater to visitors, especially families. It’s a fabulous place to serve as your base when visiting the area, Holman says. Close to everything, the town is a pleasant sanctuary away from the frenzy that whirls around the club scene of South Beach and Miami. “It’s a very unique community,” Holman explains. “It’s family friendly.” •
