Art Deco History
Miami’s oldest neighbourhood, Coconut Grove was founded in 1873, but most of the historic buildings can be found near South Beach in the Art Deco District. The area contains more than 800 buildings dating from the 1920s to the 1940s that were traditionally white with subtle pastel and gold trims. The buildings were only painted in their iconic bright colours in the 80s to grab the attention of tourists. Walk along the streets of Ocean Drive to enjoy the striking geometric architecture in all its glamour and elegance.
There is lots going on both day and night in Miami so you’re bound to find something to suit your tastes. After dark, the iconic South Beach comes alive with a fantastic club scene, infused by a range of music styles, from dancehall and reggae to house, rock and R&B. If you want to sample a delicious cocktail or have a relaxing glass of wine, head Downtown to one of the vibrant bars, jazz clubs or salsa venues. Enjoy live music and a range of delicious cuisine from a variety of themed restaurants.
