Known across the globe as a world-class nightlife destination and a playground for beautiful people, South Beach is also famous for another kind of beauty -- stunning Art Deco architecture! The South Beach Art Deco Design District features hundreds of buildings and is on the National Register of Historic Places, one of the few neighborhoods to make this impressive list. Just a short ride from our boutique hotel, you can embark on a memorable walking tour that takes you by many of Miami Beach's most notable buildings.
During the 1920s, '30s, and '40s, an incredible array of architecture was built showcasing Art Deco touches like shiny curves, bright curves, and beautiful tile floors. Highlights include Park Central where Hollywood stars and starlets would hang out in its heyday and the Delano, the tallest building in Miami when it opened in 1947. Visit the Art Deco Welcome Center along Ocean Drive to get detailed information and tips for your tour.
For an unforgettable walking tour, start your journey at 5th Street right along the water in South Beach. Stroll north up Ocean Drive all the way to 17th Street keeping your camera ready as you pass each block. You are sure to be blown away by the amazing amount of architectural beauty.
