As one of the most popular destinations on the planet, Miami definitely has something for everyone. Between the sun and surf, the glamour and grit, the Art Deco architecture and world-class graffiti, the Golden Girls and Dexter, the Magic City is sure to find plenty of ways to cast its spell on you.
Although technically not a part of Miami proper, the South Beach neighborhood of Miami Beach is a top priority stop for everyone from celebrities and models to international and middle-American tourists. It’s home to the Miami Beach Art Deco Historic District—which, at almost a square mile and 960 historic buildings, is one of the largest areas in the US on the National Register of Historic Places. The Miami Design Preservation League provides the official Art Deco District Walking Tour, where you can learn all about the architectural style, the individual buildings, and the history of South Beach.
