I am planning a girls trip to Miami for my 30 something birthday in Aug. There will be a total of 7 girls and our main goal is to PARTY!!! ...and of course the beach. I am going back and forth between hotel rooms, or a vacation rental..leaning more toward a vacation rental so we can all be together. We will be staying 3 nights, and each girl would like to spend no more than $250 on accommodations. That makes my total budget $1750 for 3 nights, or about $580/ night. All of the houses that would fit our needs in Miami are out of our budget...but I did see a few that we may be able to swing outside of the Miami beach area. So my questions is, what areas are close enough..(short cab drive or walk to clubs in south beach) but not so far that we'll feel like we are missing all the action..we also want to be close, (walking distance) to a beach.
Thanks in advance!
