I really enjoyed the Art Deco District, it has a very nice atmosphere with many restaurants and bars where you can have lunch or dinner and having great time. The beach is very close, so you can try to enjoy both things. During the evening the area is very crowded and noisy in some parts, so it will be hard for parking. Even when this area is crowded it is worthy to visit it and spending some time there. I also liked this area for staying at a hotel.

Loved all the buildings with the historic Deco look -- both structure and color. A little crowded on the streets, but still worth the visit!

The striking thing here, is that all the images you have ever seen before appear to be on one side of the road. On the other side, is scruffy strips of lawn and planting, the sea wall and loads of homeless people, general slacker types and rather down at heel. You`ll feel uncomfortable even in the daytime, let alone at night. The actual art deco bits are nice, a walk up and down and a bit to eat should do it. Unless you want to hit the beach. Half a day will cover it, assuming you find somewhere to park!

The main problem with viewing this district is finding somewhere to park - the secondary problem is being able to afford to park. It costs 15 dollars a day or one dollar 75 cents per hour. A word of warning, some of the parking meters are faulty so you could lose your money. It's best to view the buildings from across the road. If you walk on the building side of the road you are just walking through restaurant tables which have spilled onto the pavement. It's quite a long walk from 5th street to 15th, so give yourself a couple of hours to appreciate it properly.

To my previous knowledge the Art Deco Historic District was its own little area to view the historic buildings and take pictures while taking a leisurely walk. In between the historic buildings there are strip clubs and bars. This was NOT how it ended up being. The Art Deco Historic District is swarmed with drunk people in bathing suits and while I was there there was a fight in the street. It was a beautiful little street, then all the party goers took over. I would highly recommend this if you are interested in NIGHT LIFE... but not if you want to relax.
