Imagine Lifestyles Exotic Rental Cars and Luxury LivingDear Imagine Lifestyles,

I am traveling to Miami with my wife and 6-year old child.  What luxury hotels do you recommend in South Beach, and do you believe that we will require a rental car for the area?  Tips for restaurants, and activities besides the beach for our family are welcome!
