Art Deco Historic District, Miami Beach

#3 of 147 in Historic Sites in Florida
Historic Walking Area Architectural Building
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. Before you head to Miami Beach, plan trip itinerary details with our user-friendly Miami Beach trip builder, to make sure you see all that Miami Beach has to offer, including Art Deco Historic District.

Where to stay in Miami Beach

As Miami Beach is situated on an island across the bay from the main city, you'd be hard-pressed to find accommodation here that doesn't offer beach access. Accommodations on Miami Beach range from vacation rentals to boutique hotels to luxury resorts. Those wanting to be at the heart of the famous shopping, dining, and nightlife of Miami Beach should stay in South Beach along Ocean Drive or Collins Avenue. The island's Art Deco district offers a number of vintage hotels within walking distance of the area's main attractions and famous beaches.

  • Very good experience. Very windy on the top. Hold on to your caps.
  • Best walking tour I've ever been on. The guide was very informative and only mentioned "haunted" once.
  • You can easily walk all Ocean Drive to watch the different building styles/colors in 30min. Would recommend going there in the morning if you plan on taking pictures!
  • Nice place..its all about the history of Maimi beach
  • Great tour - very informative. Provided a good overview of the different styles and included visits to the interior of some buildings. Our tour guide, Melissa was very knowledgable and even sent us a follow up email with more details on one of our questions.
