In the Solara Surfside, Bluegreen Resorts has created yet another affordable accommodation within a community noted for its own shopping, dining, and recreational experiences. The town of Surfside includes a mile-long stretch of clean and peaceful beach, as well as supermarkets, steak and seafood restaurants, venues for ordering pizza and kosher deli food, and 100 distinctive boutiques.
Greater Miami is the gateway to adventure and fun for Bluegreen Resorts vacationers. Played out against a rich multicultural background, the city’s many entertainment opportunities include beach activities and water sports, a stroll down Latin-influenced Calle Ocho, a basketball game on the Miami Heat’s home court, and family fun at Zoo Miami or Jungle Island. Bluegreen Resorts’ customers can enjoy the region’s many spectacular beach scenes that include the glamour of South Beach with its Art Deco architecture and pulsing nightlife, as well as the windsurfers’ paradise of Hobie Beach and the white sands and clear waters of Sunny Isles Beach, just made for diving and snorkeling.
If you stay with Bluegreen Resorts in Surfside and spend the day along Calle Ocho, you will be able to take in all the attractions in the Little Havana area. With a deep heritage derived from Cuba, Nicaragua, Honduras, and other parts of the Caribbean and Central American regions, the culture of Calle Ocho moves to a merengue and salsa beat. Art galleries, small marketplaces, coffee vendors, and bakeries filled with the aromas of guava pastry and Cuban bread line the street.
