When most of those up North have to bundle up to battle winter blizzards, we site on our balconies and patios in our Miami condos and homes enjoying a balmy 65-75+ degrees in. Year-round lush greenery, white sandy beaches, warm glitzy waters and the opportunity to flaunt your latest designer wear make quite an irresistible picture compared to snowed-in immobility.

Snowbirds, if you’re planning to escape the winter woes, consider these top 10 luxury waterfront condo neighborhoods in Miami that make great second homes, vacation spots and obviously, exceptional places of residence:

1. South Beach (Miami Beach)

While South Beach is the poster child for world-class parties and vacations, South of Fifth (SoFi) is where you can savor exclusivity. At the southernmost tip of the barrier island, find the family-friendly 17-acre South Pointe Park and beach, top-rated restaurants, private clubs, boutique hotels and ultra-luxury condos for sale and rent in this high-end neighborhood.
 
For those who don’t mind the partying and mingling, consider the rest of South Beach your playground. Just minutes from SoFi, find the legendary Lincoln Road Mall famous for its sidewalk cafés and people-watching. Ocean Drive and Washington Avenue stay alive with their world-renowned nightclubs, hotels and spas frequented by celebrities. The endless Lummus Park and beach is a hot favorite for tanning and flaunting a beach-bod.
