Art Deco Historic District, Miami Beach
(4.4/5 based on 4,800+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • 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!
  • 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.
  • The art deco district has a nice feel to the neighbourhood with old school buildings and shops and restaurants. There are walking tours available as well. Good touristy spot.
