Learn about the history of Miami Beach through its architecture




Delve into the scandalous history of Miami Beach by way of its architecture. The Art Deco facades and “Mediterranean Revival” of South Beach – or SoBe for those in the know – are the largest collection of buildings dating from the 20s and 30s in the world. In fact, there are more than 900 listed buildings. Come and see the most beautiful examples around!

An offbeat tour of Miami Beach


Step 1 > The legendary Ocean Drive

This street encapsulates everything about Miami Beach – the beach, the excess, the glitz, the bars and luxury hotels…but above all it showcases the very best in Art Deco and Miami architecture.

Step 2 > Cruising through South Beach

The Art Deco style lends heavily from the themes of travel and the sea. Can you find them?

Step 3 > Casinos and Prohibition

Miami Beach has always been a tourist destination but not all its visitors came just for the sandy beaches.

Step 4 > Official Buildings of Miami Beach

They too are decked out in elegant or grand architectural facades. Even buying a stamp is an exercise in time travel!

Step 5 > Espanola Way

Did you know that it’s possible to visit Madrid directly from Miami Beach? The Spanish Village is a little bit of Spain right in the heart of South Beach. You’re sure to find tapas restaurants, Mediterranean architecture and a European atmosphere!
