We were so impressed by the amazing amount of Art Deco Architecture in Miami Beach. There's about a 20-block district that's protected by the National Register of Historic Places. The buildings were built between 1910 to post-WWII. However, most that are still standing were built in the 30's and 40's.
Many of my favorite buildings were on Ocean Drive facing the beach.
I loved the clean lines on these buildings, accented by little decorative touches like this flower inlay. Most of the buildings that I saw had nature or nautical-themed inlays.
This was the foyer of the hotel we stayed in. Many of the places we visiting had white battery operated candles that looked very realistic and are on a timer to go on and off at a specific time. Perfect for a party.
Neon signs were big! A nice part of the modern look.
Everyone was eating outside at these hotels...definitely a great place to people watch.
Another fun car that definitely adds to the ambience.
View from the beach of some stately palms and classic hotels.
