Miami is known the world over for having some of the best beaches, finest restaurants, great shopping and Hurricanes!

From the southern end of Miami; The Falls, Coconut Grove, Mayfair Shops, Merrick Park, Bal Harbour Shops, Aventura Mall, the list goes on and on!

You've received some great answers to your question here. I'd like to add that Miami is geographically a large city and apart from the many well-known shopping areas you've already been told about, there are many lesser-known places slightly off the beaten track in places like the historic agricultural Miami Redland area, where we have the only winery in the country that makes wines out of tropical fruits such as mango and lychee and not grapes!

Miami is well known for fabulous shopping experiences! South Florida offers some of the best places to splurge, save a few bucks or just window shop. Here are the top 5 places
Lincoln Road
Full of stores, boutiques, art galleries, and museums, seven blocks of this ten-block mall have been closed to auto traffic. Amazing
The Falls
This open-air mall located on U.S. 1 in southern Miami-Dade County offers a completely different shopping experience.

Dolphin Mall
The Dolphin Mall, located just west of Miami International Airport, offers shoppers over 200 restaurants and stores.
In the heart of Coconut Grove lies this beautiful outdoor shopping complex. Wit stores, restaurants and night life.
Bal Harbour Shops
Get Ritch first! If you're looking for some high-class shopping, few places in the world compare to Bal Harbour Shops.

Miami is an internationally renowned shopping destination. The abundance of shopping venues here makes it impossible to cover it all in one weekend. Downtown offers Bayside Marketplace. South Beach has Lincoln Road Mall and the shops on the south end of Collins Ave. The Aventura Mall and Bal Harbour Shops are north of the beach and offer some of design’s most expensive labels. Coconut Grove has CocoWalk/Mayfair and Coral Gables has the elegance of Miracle Mile. Traditional malls include the Dolphin Mall and Dadeland Mall.

Miami being a multi-cultural city has much to offer when it comes to ethic restaurants, markets, etc... You have a choice of international, Caribbean and Latin American fares which makes Miami a true food lover paradise. Regarding retail shopping Miami has top of the line exclusive shops and all the major department stores. Any person born to shop will feel right at home in this city.

What I like most about Miami is the combination of cultures that you can find. There are people from all over the world. You can go to a local grocery store and find food from Latin America, Asia, Europe etc.. so you do not have to miss that special treat from your country and I love to shop in Miami because the most famouse retail stores are located here in this tropical paradise.

Miami is a city renowned for its shopping and recreational activities. It's close proximity to other cities gives you even more access to great parks and shops. You'll find plenty of coffe shops and stores open late nights. There are an abundance of restaurants and shops that cater to South Florida's diverse ethnic population.

Uptown, Downtown or across town, Miami offers a great assortment of stops for shopping. If you want or need to be indoors, there are plenty of malls around town such as Dolphin Mall, Aventura Mall and Dadeland Mall. All cater to the masses and offer the staples and then some. If it's open air shopping that you seek, then The Falls, Village of Merrick Park, Bal Harbour and Bayside are what you seek. All offer a diverse shopping experience mixed in with koi ponds, fountains, palm trees, paddle fans and South Florida breezes. Lastly, for the more agile and adventurous, Lincoln Road, CocoWalk and Miracle Mile offer no boundaries when it comes to shopping and strolling. Here you'll find streets with boutiques, and endless blocks with cafes and galleries. So whether you want to splurge, save a few bucks or just window shop, put on your most comfortable shoes and hit the pavement (or terrazzo, or tile).
