Art Deco Historic District, Miami Beach

4.5
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.

  • A visit to the Art Deco Historic District is a must while in Miami Beach. Very picturesque and colourful!  more »
  • I don't know what to expect but the name you think of something cute and original, in my humble opinion there is nothing interesting to watch ...

  • Very nice to walk in this neighborhood full of history and art, personally I did not appreciate fully the famous art deco hotel, pure personal taste.

  • A must see for all Floridians (like me) and those visiting the South Florida area. Very beautiful architecture.
  • Great tour for 25 USD per Adult. Learned a lot about the architecture. Gives 10% on giftshop purchases over 5 USD and free entry into the museum. If you are less familiar with the english language, you might enjoy a self guided tour.
  • The architecture is so fun here. A great place to wander around!
  • Great area to walk through and enjoy some of the beautiful Art Deco buildings. Lots to see and do there.
  • Great walk through if you want to get familiar with miami. You've seem this place all the time on tv.

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.
