  • An interesting building of great historical significance... but there are limited areas accessible to the public. A little more information would be welcome, presented in a more interactive and engaging manner would be welcome.
  • It was under maintenance and closed when we went there. So couldn't really explore it. But its beautiful from outside at least.
  • This place is really cool📷 It was my first time in Miami. When you saw this tower you are feeling that this tower has something special.
  • Nice and clean. Free entrance, just fill in some data at the front desk. Must see in Miami. Recommendation: go see the tower at night!
  • This is a cool place. The city lights it up most nights and the light colors change regularly.

Where to stay in Miami

Miami's South Beach boasts one of the largest collections of boutique hotels in the country. Though it can be quite expensive, staying in this area ensures proximity to the city's best shoreline, clubs, shopping, and restaurants, not to mention Art Deco buildings. Mid-Beach and downtown also make great places to stay, offering some superb apartment rentals and small hotels, though the neighborhoods are not as glamorous as South Beach. If you're traveling on a budget, avoid the high season during winter months. If money is no object, get a room with a view before it gets too hot along the famous stretch of Collins Avenue between 15th and 23rd Street.
