Lincoln Road Mall: Miami’s Hippest Street


Lincoln Road Mall is a walkable 10-block strip of upscale stores, cafes, restaurants and bars in South Beach. There’s no doubt that Lincoln Road is one of the most popular destinations in Miami.

The pedestrian zone with its high-end stores, restaurants and art galleries is a must-see for anyone visiting the city. Whether you’re looking for souvenirs or beachwear, or just want to people-watch, Lincoln Road is the place to be.

The History of Lincoln Road

Lincoln Road Mall was originally a mangrove forest, but was cleared and developed in the early 1900s.

When developer Carl Fisher laid out Lincoln Road in 1912, he named it after the assassinated Union savior. Just one year later, the City of Miami dedicated its monument to the Confederacy. Fisher’s vision was to make Lincoln Road “the Fifth Avenue of the South.”

In the 1940s, luxury brands such as Bonwit Teller, Burdines, Saks Fifth Avenue, Cadillac, and Lincoln all had outposts along Lincoln Road. In the late 1950s, Miami Beach commissioned renowned architect Morris Lapidus to redesign Lincoln Road. His design for an open-air shopping center was only the second of its kind in the United States.

The street was closed to traffic and opened in November 1960 as one of the nation’s first pedestrian malls. It described itself as the “most magnificent shopping center in all of America.”

Today, Lincoln Road is a vibrant center, home to a state-of-the-art multiplex movie theater, the architecturally acclaimed Lincoln Road parking garage, the famous New World Center concert hall, and more than 200 boutiques, local and national retail stores, and fine restaurants and bars.
