Miami’s fantastic nightlife and sunny coasts have long been a draw for celebrities. While the coastal city is home to celebrities like Matt Damon, Jennifer Lopez, and Craig Robins, it is also an unbeatable holiday destination among A-listers.
No weekend or holiday season goes without a celebrity sighting at one of Miami’s several nightclubs, restaurants, hotels, and shopping destinations. Here is a trail to the hottest celebrity haunts in Miami and when to hit them to “accidentally bump” into your favorite celeb –
Splurge at the Webster: The Webster draws hordes of celebs to its stores, being one of the only shopping destinations in America to stock European goods. The Webster is at its most star-studded during the Miami Fashion Week with most designers and top models hitting it after shows.
Go Luxury Dining: Restaurants like Prime One Twelve on Miami Beach boasts of regular customers like Lil Wayne, Kim and Kanye, and even former President Bill Clinton. For a more affordable but no less scrumptious option, hit up Cheeseburger Baby on South Beach, Beyonce’s regular hang out whenever she’s in the city.
Catch The Stars At Night Clubs: Miami’s nightlife is one of its biggest charms, and celebs are hardly immune to it. Fontainebleau’s LIV nightclub sees regular attendance from the likes of Chace Crawford, Drake, and Pharrell and performances from famous DJs Steve Aoki and Calvin Harris. President Obama is also known to host events in the area.
Turn Up The Heat During Basketball Season: Catching a Heat Match is the unwinding strategy of many, including Zac Efron and Rihanna. They are regulars at the American Airline Arena during championships.

More private celebs like Jennifer Aniston, Owen Wilson, and Kate Hudson choose to frequent Casa Tua, known for its tranquil ambience and authentic italian food.
Partying destinations aside, Miami is also home to several vintage neighborhoods, like the Buena Vista, one of oldest in the area.

The area is set to become a desirable location for tourists, with plans to expand its residential complexes to villas and cottages underway.
