This district is perhaps what everyone thinks of when they think of Miami. With the art deco buildings, the lively atmosphere and the even livelier people, this really is the full Miami experience.

Best to arrive 30- 60 min before sunset. Parking is tight since it is not free. Park on the Collins Ave or Ocean Ct since they run parallel to Ocean where these Art Deco buildings are. the parking on Ocean is bad and the meter maids are out even at 9pm! Use a tripod for camera and take pictures across... More

Miami Beach's Art Deco District is a great place for many interests. The preserved buildings are beautiful; you should go inside some to see the old lobbies and paintings, especially the Victor, the Essex House, the Hotel. There are a few museums along the way that should not be missed. Then, of course, lots of restaurants, watering holes and shops.

The number and architectural variety of the many Art Deco buildings can't really be described. It was simply more beautiful and impressive than I had thought it could be

Maybe I had read too much and expected more from the Art Deco district. It was good fun to watch and do stop by if in the neighbourhood.

Go to the Deco museum on Ocean Drive to find out more before walking the streets admiring a plethora of Deco buildings in a nice area.

The Art Deco District of South Beach is exactly what I expected: a mixture of high-end shopping and dining with ticky-tacky beach town. having grown up near Virginia Beach, I loved it! It brought back memories of my childhood and we had a blast looking at all the tacky tourist tchotchkes! We walk from our hotel just north of South... More

Drove through... it was nice but I wouldn't go out of my way to see it. I mean they are old 50s style buildings/hotels. If you are in the area its cool to see at night if you can get past the drivers that are in a hurry to go nowhere.
