The town of Surfside is a beautiful oceanfront community located in a tropical paradise next door to North Beach. With a population of only 4,500, Surfside combines a tranquil, attractive, residential neighborhood with a traditional "home town" shopping district and a number of resorts, hotels and motels which host tourists and other visitors all year round.

Old and new houses are mixed together in a quiet, peaceful and relaxed neighborhood setting. The condominiums and hotels along the oceanfront on Collins Avenue are not permitted to exceed 12 stories.
The efficiency and effectiveness of Surfside's town services is at an all time high. The town's sanitation services are perhaps the very best in America. Trash is collected from all residences, businesses, and public areas six days a week. Emergency police response time is approximately one minute.
Entertainment and recreation programs are offered throughout the year. The town operates on a balanced budget, and the property tax rate has not been increased one bit for more than a decade.

Sunny Isles Beach
[156th to 194th Streets]
Sunny Isles Beach is one of Miami-Dade's newest municipalities, located on a barrier island between North Miami Beach and Miami Beach. Officially incorporated in June 1997, it has thrived as a community since the 1950s, when it became an oasis of low-rise hotels and motels marked by decorative motifs.
Today Sunny Isles Beach is experiencing a massive makeover and is exhibiting a different type of glamour, the kind that comes from having a skyline that's literally bursting with high-rise development. All along its coastline, sleek skyscrapers of enormous height are forever changing the complexion of the city, replacing moderate-income visitors with wealthy residents.
Such is progress, and Sunny Isles is in the thick of it - to the tune of thousands of residential units from $250,000 to $10 million coming online in the next several years. This small city's renaissance translates into billions of dollars invested in a strip of beachfront only three blocks wide.
Many of South Florida's biggest name developers are bringing signature projects here such as Acqualina, Jade Beach, and Ocean IV and V. Donald Trump already has three condo buildings in Sunny Isles Beach, including the Trump International Sonesta Beach Resort, and is planning a joint venture with local developers to build Trump Towers I, II and III.
With 2.5 miles of soft, white sand, Sunny Isles Beach is host to almost one million visitors annually. There are five beautiful parks for both residents and visitors to enjoy. The main park is very well maintained and is great for swimming and other water sports.
The excitement and nightlife of Miami Beach is just minutes away, and other nearby communities such as Coral Gables, Golden Beach and Key Biscayne offer full service marinas, championship golf courses, diving facilities, museums, shopping, theater and art galleries.
