The days are getting longer and the nights warmer, which has put you in the mood for three things: sand, surf, and slinky attire for the glammest of parties.

Pack your best bikinis or trunks and hop a direct flight to South Beach, where you're staying in the fabulous Art Deco district's Shelborne South Beach.

Your sun-kissed Escape includes a one-night stay in either a Standard ($99) or an Ocean View ($129) Room in this hotel that rocks modern and sexy in a whole new way.

Things will start heating up the moment you take in a panoramic view of South Beach (or the Atlantic) from your spacious guest room appointed in geometric patterns and funky furniture that suit its Art Deco neighborhood.

Beyond your designer bath products, you'll also have the use of free Wi-Fi throughout the hotel, access to the Shelborne's pristine beachfront pool (complete with Jacuzzis), a continental breakfast for two, and an open-bar happy hour starting at 6 pm each night.

Feel the mercury rise as you head down to the white sands, just steps beyond the hotel, for a day of catching rays. Or, take a laid-back walking tour of some of the hundreds of Art Deco-style buildings that give this district a distinct, yet whimsical, feel.

Take in a show at the Jackie Gleason Theater or work up a sweat just watching the Miami Heat play in the nearby Sun Life Stadium. Then, of course, dial this vacation up a notch with a night out at Cameo or LIV, and feel those warm nights get hot, hot, hot.
