We found a walking tour of the South Beach's art deco district online. What a wonderful walk. Also enjoyed the beach area and discovered the accessible walkway and all the free exercise equipment available for use. The hotels with their glorious past look so lovely.

We loved staying in the Art Deco Historic District. It was beautiful, and the charming architecture contributed to the vacation ambiance for us. South Beach was great fun, and we felt that we were right in the heart of the action. It was Art Deco Weekend, and it was hopping with vendors and visitors. We had outstanding food at a... More

We didn't know that you could arrange a guided tour of the area so we just walked around and admired all the lovely buildings and hotels. Our hotel was one of the original Art Deco hotels of the area. There is something so beautiful and feminine about the Art Deco style. All the curves and lovely light colours. It lends... More

Enjoy walking through winter playground of USA elites during 20's. Beautiful building, awesome Palm trees, ocean,restaurants, clubs, design shops. It should be on a bucket list of every architect, you may understand how something cheesy on pictures is a true art in real life. Doesn't cost a penny and is always near other interesting spots (south beach, clubs, restaurants). Pop... More

I guess there is always a festival or fair or something going on. It is a fun place and the architecture is interesting. I didn't like being harrassed by the restaurant host/hostess as we walked by. Especially, as I was looking for a cup of decaf coffee and they would say, "yes" to get us to sit down, but then... More

We stayed in the Art Deco district in Jan 2015 and it was a great time. The south beach strip is a really fun and energetic place and glad to see the Art Deco style hotels still alive and booming! They have a great beach compliment with the huge Lummus Park. I will defiantly be returning.

You don't need to reserve space at the MDPL's walking tour of the area and you don't need to look elsewhere for a better tour. This is the one! The tour guides are all dedicated Art Deco fanatics and the tour price supports the work of the Miami Development Preservation League. We enjoyed it greatly and learned a lot of... More

Great place to grab a sidewalk table at one of the many restaurants and bars and just watch the world go by. We arrived just after a parade ended somewhere nearby, and saw all sorts of characters (although I sense that this may be the daily turnout...) It was a weekend, and there was a large streetside arts and crafts... More

We met the 10:30 walking group at 10th and Ocean Drive Art Deco building. Howard was a very informative speaker who took us around several blocks of hotels pointing out similarities and differences. Tour was great but walking through the area T night to see the lights is also wonderful.
