Surfside FL: Vintage Celeb Hangout Now Hotel


Opened in 1930 by tire maker Harvey Firestone, the once- exclusive and private Miami club has gone public as a Four Seasons Hotel. Surfside established its fun rep in those prohibition days and beyond, when only the rich and famous few could enjoy the boozy elegance.

The upscale hotel features 77 luxurious rooms. Outdoor cabanas have terrazzo floors and expansive wood deck lanais with beautiful ocean views. Rooms are from about $1,000. The Four Seasons, 9011 Collins Ave., Surfside, FL; fourseasons.com
