The Art Deco District, also referred to as the Miami Beach Architectural District, is the area of South Beach primarily stretching between Sixth Street and Dade Boulevard, and famous for its predominant Art-deco Architecture.
This area is a U.S. historic district featuring more than 960 historic buildings. Collins Avenue is the main artery famous for boutiques and retail stores; Ocean Drive stretching along the Atlantic Ocean is famous for its restaurants, clubs, bars and Grand Hotels. Every night the street becomes alive, people crowd the sidewalks and each establishment is lit up by colorful neon lights.
You should plan to visit the Art Deco District at least one time by day and one by night; the scenery changes greatly, you will have the opportunity to see the historic buildings in their natural beauty during the day, and lit up by colorful neon lights at night.
Almost every single city tour in Miami will include a stop in the Art-deco district; many activities and excursions are available throughout the day and even at night. First, it is recommended to walk around the neighborhood escorted by a professional guide to better admire and understand this incredible architecture-style, and later you can come back as many times as you like to leisurely explore this area.
This area is also considered the center of South Beach and along with Lincoln Road features many restaurant, shops, bar, boutiques, coffee places and more!
