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.

Fun for Art Deco Buffs
James was a great tour guide. Lots of fun facts about the architecture and history. We can now point out real Art Deco from the period vs. the ones made to resemble it.

Miami South Beach Art Deco Walking Tour
Fascinating tour, highly recommended. James was an engaging tour guide who covered the area’s history, the principles of art deco design and the preservation movement of South Beach. James took us inside many beautiful art deco lobbies as well as admiring building exteriors and we even visited a fabulous hotel rooftop. We loved the tour, so many interesting stories and anecdotes.

2Hr Private Boat Rental Miami Beach see the Homes of Millionaires & Celebrities
Captain Jack was simply amazing - very communicative the day of so we knew where to be and what to expect. The boat was clean, with some shade, and some sun - it was perfect. Little champagne, some music: Beautiful tour of the bay. Lots of fun nuggets about the homes and area from Captain Jack. Stopped for some snorkeling and swimming. Bumped into a curious sting ray. Really fun adventure!

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.
