The city of Surfside was incorporated in May of 1935 via the signatures of 35 members of the Surf Club, where the rich and famous gathered — and still do. Guests included Frank Sinatra, Elizabeth Taylor, Ava Gardner, Winston Churchill, and Dean Martin.
Surfside neighborhood is home to some pretty stunning hotels, like Four Seasons at the Surf Club, which opened on New Year’s Eve in 1930 and has attracted famous guests from Elizabeth Taylor to the royal family to Sinatra.
Today the Surf Club Four Season was meticulously renovated and redesigned by Richard Meyer Richard Meier and re opened in 2017.
The Surfside neighborhood spans just 1.0 sq mile / 1.3 km2 sitting between the ocean and Biscayne Bay.
