Art Deco Historic District

Even if you don’t care for the beach, a visit to Miami Beach’s Art Deco Historic District is worthwhile. The stylish South Beach district is dominated by this architectural style, which was prominent in the 1930s and 1940s.

Following a disastrous hurricane in 1926, these one-of-a-kind structures were erected in a variety of pastel colours and with enormous neon signage. The majority of the hotels and restaurants have been wonderfully restored. Awnings on the lower levels of these buildings provide shade for outdoor dining spaces along several of the main roadways.

 

The two main thoroughfares in the neighbourhood are Ocean Drive and Collins Avenue.
