I love looking at the buildings in this section of SOBE; Just have to remember to look where I'm walking once in awhile. I've seen a lot of improvements to the buildings on Collins and Ocean every time I visit.

A nice tour with not too much walking-- gave you a better appreciation for the architecture and SOBE Vibe. Wouldn't have minded another stop or two with refreshments!

It was really nice to walk among the vintage buildings and get a feel for what it was like in the earlier days. Many have been restored to their original beauty and many are currently being restored. It's a really fun street to walk down - especially later in the evening when the "party" starts!

A Star Trek experience! To land here is to be exposed to what closely resembles an alternate reality. Beautifully preserved buildings in unique color palettes.

The visitor center is a good starting point to get some info on the style itself and some historical fact around the area. It is free, and while you search for it you see most of the interesting buildings. The Ocean Drive is nice, worth to have a walk on it.

This was our reason for staying in Sobo. We LOVE Art Deco and it was a joy to see so many buildings in close proximity. Loved it.

Wonderful architecture that is part of every day life and being cared for. The museum was also very good and gave some good background to the art deco movement

Congrats to the planners who originally laid out this beach paradise and thank goodness for the preservation approach that does tasteful adaptations. And the area is fun! Check it out!
