South Beach

Ocean Drive, Miami, Florida

The Basics

Head to Ocean Drive to see Lummus Park Beach, or stop by Lincoln Road to shop and wander the beach promenade between Fifth and Fifteenth streets. Another main highlight is the set of pastel-hued structures on Collins Avenue in the Art Deco District, home to the largest concentration of Art Deco architecture in the world.

A typical Miami city tour combines a stop in South Beach with a Biscayne Bay cruise around Star Island, an airboat ride in the Everglades, or visits to Little Havana, Wynwood, Miami Beach, and Coconut Grove. Choose a walking tour, a Segway tour, a boat tour, a food tour, or a bus tour according to your schedule and mobility. Architecture tours are conducted by the Miami Design Preservation League, among other operators, and stop at some of the most stunning architectural examples and the Art Deco Welcome Center.

Miami South Beach Art Deco Walking Tour
James is one of the best tour guides. He has a unique South Beach history he loves to share, and clearly loves the Art Deco buildings we saw. Have done the Art Deco tour in Chicago, but he explained the different elements a bit better. Concentrated on Art Deco, but also explained South Beach history. South Beach is fortunate to have such a great tour guide, and yay for the Preservation Society.

We had a great time. Sol was our guide and she provided us with such a great experience. It was the perfect way to spend a few hours and learn a bit more about the history of South Beach and get to taste some of the local food options. I highly recommend this tour if you're looking for something to do while in Miami Beach.

How to Get There

Across the MacArthur Causeway from downtown Miami, South Beach stretches north from South Pointe Park all the way to 23rd Street. From Fifteenth to 23rd Street, the upper end includes the pedestrian thoroughfare of Lincoln Road and its associated shopping, eating, and nightlife, plus clusters of Art Deco buildings. Between First and Fifteenth streets is a quietly hip area that acts as a counterweight to the over-the top carnival of South Beach.

Indoor Attractions in South Beach

If you want to get out of the sun and away from the crowds, step inside the provocative World Erotic Art Museum, or visit the polar opposite Bass Museum of Art for a peek at 16th-century religious art. Venture out after dusk falls to see south Florida's nightlife come alive.
