Art Deco Historic District, Miami Beach

4.4
Historic Walking Area · Neighborhood
Discover the colorful history of the city's distinct architecture with a walk through Art Deco Historic District, boasting nearly 1,000 historical buildings. Bounded by the Atlantic on its eastern side, the district houses vibrantly colored buildings built during an era when the city advertised itself as a "tropical playground." Laid out rapidly in the 1920s and the 1930s, the area developed almost exclusively in the Art Deco, Mediterranean Revival, and Modern styles of architecture. For a self-guided tour of the district's renowned hotels, restaurants, bars, cafes, galleries, and shops, rent a bicycle at any one of nearly 100 bike rental stations scattered around the city.

  • This area is so interesting. The buildings were amazing. If you like a tour they are limited on space and time  more »
  • If you're into architecture and history, the Art Deco Tour is amazing! Lots of tidbits about the area and great stories of what South Beach used to be years ago!  more »
