Next door is a... More

We went in to pick up information and to book a trip to Key West. We were given great help from Pamela, who also directed us to the nearest Post Office and gave us info on buses and Key West. However, all the staff were warm and welcoming, and very helpful.

The Miami Beach Miami Art Deco District known as Old Miami Beach Historic District is a U.S. historic district located in the South Beach neighborhood of Miami Beach. It contains many, many historic buildings. I love the place and unique atmosphere. Spend half a day and go for lunch to Las Olas Cafe.

I enjoyed the art education I received via this museum. I thought the presentation was well organized, educational, and attractive. It was inexpensive and a nice treat.

It is interesting to visit because you can see an exposition with interesting photos inside. Also the building is quite interesting. Anyway, it is a little lacking in giving map and information. It provides especially paying walking tour.

While the shop was interesting and had some unique and hard to find vintage items I really would never pay $135 for a 1970s toaster that I didn't like in the 1970s when it was new. That being said, its a nice look at yesteryear with some quirky stuff thrown in.

We stopped by to gather more information about the area and were greeted by friendly, warm staff. They were very informative and helpful, we were able to narrow down the activities that we really wanted to do with their input.

The Welcome Center and museum were great. My family paid $5 a person to look at the displays in the museum which were nice but I would, in the future, pay the extra to join the walking tour or the audio tour.
