The city is loaded with delightful bed and breakfast inns (B&Bs) that offer intimate luxuries of every kind (think: Jacuzzis). There are also waterfront resorts, hotels, inns, and motels of all descriptions. While in town, be sure to tour Ocean Drive, visit some mansions, and dine on seafood at some of the many restaurants on the wharf.
