Miami Beach is Art Deco Heaven

Miami is home to hundreds of examples of Art Deco architecture as this remarkable city by the sea first became popular back in the 1920’s. Over the years, some of these fine buildings fell into disrepair, but today, the tourist dollar has come to the rescue, and the neglected buildings are now back to their former glory. This is Art Deco heaven for any architecture fan.

Take the water or enjoy your hotel, what a dilemma

Anyone interested in diving or snorkelling will find America’s best diving spots between Key Largo and Islamorada.
