The Miami Beach Art Deco District (alternately known as the Old Miami Beach Historical District) has been designated a U.S. Historic District listed on the Ntl Register of Historic Places, & anyone interested in design, architecture, history, or beautiful buildings should visit here. It's generally considered the South Beach area between 6th & 16th St on Ocean Drive & Collins Ave, but technically the District goes all the way over to Alton Rd & up to around 22nd St. The Miami Design Preservation League offers informative walking tours (they also run the annual Art Deco Fest every Jan), but you can take your own personalized tour ... just grab a map at one of the many tourist info centers in South Beach, & start walking, or rent a bike at one of the Bike-Share stations in the area. Many of the hotels in the Deco District have outdoor Cafes, bars, & restaurants where you can stop for a drink or a meal, & Ocean Drive got its name because one side of the street looks out on the Atlantic Ocean & a public beach where you can swim or just hang out. On Collins Ave in the Deco District there are many shops, mostly upscale. An afternoon or evening in the Art Deco District is a wonderful way to spend some South Beach time. I've been there a gazillion times, & I learn or see something new & beautiful every time.
