One of the reasons that we travelled to Miami was to see the art deco district and enjoy the history. It was great to see that so many of the historical buildings are being refurbished back to their original beauty.

If you get the chance to do this then we would really recommend it. We visited south beach a couple of weeks ago and my partner is an architect, so was keen to do a tour of the Art Deco district. Headsets can be picked up from the art centre at the beach and cost $20 for adults ( free... More

These buildings are so beautiful, they stretch for several blocks around the beach, my favorite thing is to have dinner at one of the sidewalk cafés

Not an attraction as such but for anyone with an eye for well maintained Art Deco buildings, the Miami Beach area is a must. Even buildings that have been re-modelled inside still retain their original Art Deco exterior. And some of the older hotels have fully refurbished Art Deco interiors to take visitors back to by-gone times.

Walked through this area of Miami Beach several times when visiting. Took tour with the Miami Preservation Group, definitely worth it. Tour guide was excellent so you get to both inside and out many of the Art Deco buildings and learn about the history of this area. Can work through the area for free, but there is a charge for...

Great restaurants and bars all over the area! Busy area, and not for those looking for a low-key vacation. Love the architecture!

It was cool to have described the different styles and actually see them from the road. We took a Duck Tour and we saw a lot by land and sea. Once on land, the tour guide showed examples of different types of architecture in the area.
