This is a truly unique architectural area well worth the time to understand with tours and visits to major sites.
Now that the refurbishment of this area has been completed it is an amazing sight and virtually unique in the world. If you are even slightly interested in architecture then you will be spoilt for choice here; get some practice taking photos...
A must. Whether you decide to walk Ocean Rd during the day or by night, you will enjoy this "Miami as it once was" stroll. I recommend it by night (when you truly "feel" the mood of the neighborhood): Its lights, its old hotels (nicely updated) and some shops with affordable prices where you can get the "floridian" stuff, if...

It's great to see all the art deco buildings in the day time but when they are lit up at night is even better. A good way to see them is on the hop on hop off bus which goes around that way.

Could not get enough of the buildings. Took pictures day and night. We did not take a tour but would recommend if you want a more historical perspective.
Congratulation to the City of Miami Beach, you have done a great job keeping the city's identity; keeping the Art Deco style of buildings really sets you apart from most American cities. There are hundreds of beautiful buildings from the Art Deco era 1925 - 1945. The buildings set in a tropical theme, with palm and coconut trees make the... More
The art deco atmosphere is just cool. I haven't seen anything else like it. My schedule didn't work out for me to be able to take the walking tour offered by the welcome center, but I wish that it had. I spent a good five or six hours walking around the buildings and the beach one day and it was... More
