If you walk along ocean drive you will end up in the Art Deco district, with the Art deco visitors center. There you can get the historical facts and learn more about the art deco. Myself, I just strolled up and down the streets taking pictures. The houses are really cute, and well preserved. Now days most of them on... More

This is a great place to walk and view the historic buildings from 1930s Miami. We found a National Geographic website that provided a good self guided tour of the district, which we found very interesting. Ocean Drive can be a little overwhelming though. I recommend walking on the side of the street nearest the beach to avoid the hosts/hostesses... More

Amazing place with great architectonical value. It's a beautiful memento of the 60s constructions, and also a well known Hollywood site.

The South Beach Area of Miami Beach is the largest collection of Art Deco buildings in the world. It is interesting, athmospheric and beautiful to look at - and very familiar - remember Miami Vice? To really appreciate and to see detail of the art deco and other architectural styles (MiMo, Mediterranean Revival) go to the Art Deco Centre Museum,... More

Enjoy this eclectic district. Full of Art Deco buildings from late 20's and 30's. Most of them are today Boutique hotels. You have to walk though Ocean Drive-Collins Ave and Washington Ave. Get more info at The Art Deco welcome Ctr on Ocean and 10th. Lots of history there and please do not miss my favorite buildings: Colony hotel block,... More

We visited the Miami Beach Art Deco museum during a recent visit. It's a nicely located building and gives a reasonable overview of Art Deco and it's histrory in Miami Beach. However, it needs much more before it can call itself a museum. At $5 for seniors it was just about worth it!

Spent a couple hours here before catching the plane. It's a pretty weird place with a LOT of showoff attitude, snazzy cars and so on. The buildings are worth seeing. They are really interesting even at the inside!

Just lovely seeing these old hotels lovingly restored. Some restaurants better than others but all are competing for business. Big plans by the city ahead to limit restaurants that overtake the sidewalks, less blaring noise from bars and generally improve the area. One question, what are they going to do with the Palace and the drag shows? Leave 'em alone... More
