Miami Beach is a mix of calm neighbourhoods, vibrant entertainment-focused regions, and large stretches of soft-sand beaches, located on a barrier island connected to the mainland by a series of bridges.
One of the main attractions for travellers is South Beach and the Art Deco Historic District, which features pastel buildings from the 1930s and early 1940s with classic neon signs. This is an upscale tourist zone with numerous coastal restaurants, shops, hotels, and plenty of options for sunbathing.
Ocean Drive, a portion of road located along the coastline and home to some spectacular Art Deco structures, is the most popular roadway in this neighbourhood. Collins Avenue is one block inland, running parallel to Ocean Drive. Collins Avenue, or State Road A1A, is Miami Beach’s principal seaside street, connecting a number of neighbourhoods.
