It's not surprising that the home of the South Beach Diet is one of the country's most active cities. Thanks to warm, sunny weather, many Miamians prefer to sweat outside; three times a week, crowds gather for free yoga classes at the waterside Bayfront Park.
Stay: Hard-core fitness devotees should try the Standard Hotel's boot camp, which mixes cardio, plyometrics and calisthenics. There are gentler offerings, too, like sunrise yoga and paddleboarding in Biscayne Bay.
Eat: After a decade in business, Alta Mare moved to a new South Beach location in 2010 but kept its emphasis on fish. More than half the main courses star fresh seafood, like grilled cobia with watercress, heirloom tomato and avocado.SEE MORE
