One of the highlights of Miami Beach is the architecture. The Art Deco buildings are everywhere, each one having interesting, different takes on this unique stylings. Fortunately many of the buildings have been restored in a very sympathetic manner.

Take your time to drive down A1A in Miami to experience the real cityscape of Miami and see where "The Birdcage" was filmed.

You will feel like you are on a movie set from the 1930s. It's really nice to see a lot of renovation going on in this area because these buildings are real gems.

It is absolutely charming to walk down Ocean Drive, with a palm tree lined garden on one side and block after block of art deco buildings on the other. There is an Art Deco information centre on Ocean Drive too. The bars and cafes along Ocean drive are pricey but worth the atmosphere and the view

This right out of the "old days". Interesting that many hotels and other business have no name on them. The building codes and the historic rules say that unless there was a name on the building before you bought it, you can't put one on!

Thank God so many buildings were saved from wrecking ball. The abundance of Art Deco buildings all most makes one feel like they have gone back to a gilded age when Art Deco was the fad de jour. I think the beautiful art deco buildings truly ads to the exciting flavor of South Beach.

Lots of bars and restaurants. Ocean Drive is the place where people drive to be seen. Lots of "interesting" vehicles. And the path between the beach and the... More

We booked MiamiArtDeco (Art Deco Tours) through Zerve. James was an outstanding guide. He took us to several roof tops on Art Deco Hotels and the views were spectacular. We would never have gotten to these special places if we had not toured with him.
