Chat to any local and they'll testify that, when it comes to a sense of community, Surfside runs circles around South Beach. From spacious family sized suites to stylish waterfront condos, Surfside vacation rentals put you in the heart of this easy-going Sunshine State community.

Immerse yourself in the Surfside community

Get your bearings with a stroll around Surfside's downtown district. It's brimming with breezy cafes, organic juice bars, upmarket salons and trendy boutiques. Want to join the local tribe? Head to the Surfside Community Center, where you'll find a wealth of recreational and wellness activities. Chances are, you'll spot your neighbor signing up for a Zumba class. On a sunny day it's hard to resist the call of Surfside Beach. Set right on the sand, Surfside vacation rentals capture the spirit of beachfront living.

Admiring local talent on Turtle Walk

Art lovers shouldn't miss Turtle Walk, a colorful public art exhibition featuring 13 hand painted sculptures created by local artists. Whether you cruise down the coast in a convertible or ride a local trolley, Miami Beach is just 20 minutes away. Here you'll find a smorgasbord of attractions, from the grand Art Deco Historic District to the prestigious Lincoln Road shopping strip. For nature lovers, Surfside is a gateway to Everglades National Park. As the largest subtropical wilderness in the United States, it's home to American crocodiles, Florida panthers and adorable West Indian manatees.

Sultry subtropical winters

Thanks to its subtropical climate, Florida enjoys warm weather throughout the year. That said, crowds peak in winter when flocks of snowbirds descend on its beaches. Miami also saves its most prestigious events for the winter, including the legendary Art Basel Miami Beach festival. Locals will testify that March and May are definite sweet spots so consider booking your Surfside vacation rental then. Temperatures hover around the low 80s and the community feels low key and laidback. While spring break sees legions of college kids hit up Miami Beach, Surfside escapes the influx.

A gateway to The Everglades

Beyond the beach, Surfside is a gateway to some of Florida's most unique nature encounters. Suitable for all ages, an airboat ride in The Everglades will put you face to face with alligators, the state's most famous residents. Surfside's sandy beaches are also a haven for Florida loggerhead sea turtles. Breeding season peaks in the summer, with Crandon Park Visitors & Nature Center running the esteemed Sea Turtle Awareness Program. It's a unique chance to get up close and personal with hatchlings and watch them as they flap their way towards the ocean.
