One of the attractions of quiet family-oriented Surfside, Florida is the wide, secluded beach bordered by a path through the dunes. Rejuvenated hotels and new luxury condominiums in Surfside are changing the style of Collins Avenue, but Harding Avenue, retains the feel of an old-style main street with small shops and a 50 s corner drugstore and soda fountain. Small bistros welcome strollers for a casual meal. Shows and events take place at the oceanfront pink Community Center. Just south of Surfside, Florida, the North Shore State Recreation Area offers an unspoiled beachfront nature preserve and picnic area.
