Stroll Flagler Avenue
Walk off the beach and have a burger at the pink-painted Breakers, then just a few doors up have an ice cream cone at Treats on the Beach – and you’ve only walked about two hundred feet. Flagler Avenue is lined with plenty of other shops, café’s, bars and restaurants were you can stop and browse, then grab a cocktail on a rooftop bar. Walk as far as North Peninsula Avenue and eat at Third Wave, one of the best restaurants in town which offers an outdoor dining experience in a lush setting.
