NEW YORK (Reuters) - Everyone knows it is all about location, location, location in the world of real estate. And nothing says prime location like Miami's beachfront.

That's why Pamela Liebman, who is chief executive officer of real estate giant Corcoran Group, tends to prefer the city's surf over its turf when she is traveling for business.

Here is how New York-based Liebman would spend 48 hours in Miami:

Where to stay: Carillon Hotel & Spa (6801 Collins Ave.) is a former Canyon Ranch Living property in Miami Beach. Work up a sweat at the hotel's massive fitness center - it features a 40-foot climbing wall. Detox with a massage in the spa, which is South Florida's largest.

Hydrate: Athens Juice Bar (6942 Collins Ave.) Try the green juice with a shot of vegan protein and wheat grass on the side. If you're hungry for breakfast, Athens serves the best acai bowl in Miami.

Meet: Lincoln Road buzzes around the clock, but you can usually find a quiet spot at Juvia (1111 Lincoln Rd.) The lobby of St. Regis Bal Harbor (9703 Collins Ave.) offers plenty of tranquil places for a private meeting.

Team outing: After you've burned out your colleagues in meetings, chill together at the Carillon's spa. When the head-to-toe pampering is finished, go to Prime 112 (112 Ocean Dr.)for steak (and people watching).   Continued...
