Bayside Marketplace is two-story open air shopping center located in the Downtown Miami area. The banks of Biscayne Bay wrap around the property with the City of Miami marina at its side. It is recognized by the Greater Miami Convention & Visitor's Bureau as the number one most visited attraction in Miami. Different from typical shopping malls, Bayside offers an entertainment experience with live music daily, restaurants, bars, open-container policy, family events, and the picturesque settings that come with a waterfront property. Tenancy at the Bayside Marketplace consist of 140 inline spaces, in addition to over 50 carts and kiosks located in and around the center.

History[edit]

The entertainment complex opened during a major real estate boom in Miami. Instead of being planned to revitalize a specific area as its brother properties had, Bayside complements an existing marina. The shopping center was frequently featured on the crime drama TV series, Miami Vice.

The center attracts many tourists all year long. It is served by the Metrorail at the Government Center, and directly by the Metromover at College/Bayside station.
