Why Stay At Sole on the Ocean
This independently owned hotel on the white sands of Sunny Isles Beach is within walking distance of the restaurants and shops along "Florida's Riviera" and a 30-minute drive from Miami and Fort Lauderdale.
The clean white décor and contemporary style of Solé on the Ocean's two-story lobby create a striking first impression. The minimalistic theme and glass walls are replicated throughout the hotel's 24 floors and 249 chic rooms and suites, all of which are outfitted in a white, gray, and brown color palette, with custom-designed Italian furniture. Ascend the lobby's glass staircase to Alba Seaside Italian restaurant and bar, whose menu was crafted by Hell's Kitchen season one finalist Chef Ralph Pagano. Just steps from the Solé are the shores of Sunny Isles Beach and its shallow turquoise water; head to the outdoor pool deck on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays for a grown-up, DJ-fueled party overlooking the ocean.
Visit Alba on Thursday night for the $35 all-you-can-eat special. The menu changes weekly and the meals are served family style, with select beverages included.
For $155 per day, you can add an all-inclusive, food-and-drink package to your stay. It covers breakfast, lunch, and dinner, plus well drinks made with spirits like Jack Daniels and Absolut.
Arrive at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport (FLL) which is approximately 12 miles from the resort. Anticipate about 25 minutes of travel time.17315 Collins Ave., Sunny Isles Beach, Florida, United States

Why We Love Sunny Isles Beach
Just 10 miles north of Miami, Sunny Isles Beach offers 2½ miles of white-sand beaches and turquoise waters that rival nearby South Beach, minus the round-the-clock party atmosphere.
17608 Collins Ave. 1-305-931-9106
Where to Drink If you're headed to South Beach, stop by The Flat, known for its chic interior filled with plush couches and chairs. Settle in for a handcrafted peach old-fashioned, made with Buffalo Trace bourbon, muddled peach, orange bitters, a sugar cube, and seltzer water. Drinks for two $26.
500 S. Pointe Dr., Miami Beach. 1-305-531-3528
Best Shopping: The open-air shopping center of Bal Harbour Shops—one of the last family-owned malls in the U.S.—is less than a 10-minute drive south. Once a U.S. Army barracks, it now houses the likes of Alexander McQueen, Chanel, and Jimmy Choo.
9700 Collins Ave., Bal Harbour.
Best Day Trip: You can't explore Florida's Space Coast—a 72-mile stretch of Atlantic coastline, about 3½ hours from Sunny Isles Beach—without a visit to Kennedy Space Center. Strap in for your own shuttle-launch training and simulation. SR 405, Kennedy Space Center.
From $145 per person for a half-day Astronaut Training Experience (ATX) package.
