Popular from the 1920s to 1940s, Art Deco style is one of the primary characteristics of Miami Beach architecture. Visitors can view many examples of the vibrant colors and uniquely stylized architecture that have made Miami Beach, particularly South Beach, synonymous with Art Deco style.

To find your way around the Art Deco Historic District, stop by the Art Deco Welcome Center on Ocean Drive for a guide map and information about guided walking tours and audiocassette tours. Ocean Drive itself is a great place to start your excursion with its 10 blocks of colorful hotels, now home to specialty shops, eclectic restaurants and cafes, and lively nightclubs.

Trivia: Miami Beach’s Art Deco Historic District is the largest collection of Art Deco architecture in the world.
