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.

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.

We both really like the architecture in Miami's South Beach as it is generally well maintained art deco. You know you are in Miami!

Taking a walk in the Art Deco District is turning back time until the 1920-30s. A plain walk with lots of buildings to see!
