Lincoln Road is the center of Miami Beach, and is a favorite hangout spot for locals. In 1960 the city hired architect Morris Lapidus to redesign the area to attract more patrons. The eight-block, pedestrian-only street between 16th and 17th streets, offers nearly 200 shops, several art galleries and artists’ studios, and some 50 restaurants, cafés and bars—not to mention cultural attractions such as the Colony Theatre and the Regal Cinemas South Beach. Special events include a farmers market, and an antique and collectibles market, and there are live music and street performers as well. 1111 Lincoln Rd., a new complex, is an extension of the mall with international retailers and restaurants.
