South Beach Hotels in Art Deco District
Miami Beach Hotel in The Historic Art Deco District
With its own "Little Broadway" in the 1920s, Miami became a center for the Art Deco movement in the '30s and '40s. It thrived as a military base in World War II and has since grown to be both a Latin American center and a sleek metropolitan community.
Each area has its own distinct flavor and style. If you are inclined to sightsee, South Beach's Miami Art Deco Historic District contains more than 800 buildings in this distinct architectural style. It is comprised of a few dozen hotels and apartment buildings built primarily in the 1930's. These buildings are soaring examples of pre-war modernism with characteristic rounded corners and geometric ornamentation. The highlight of the district is the strip of hotels along Ocean Drive between 5th and 15th street.
Almost all of the original buildings have been meticulously restored and painted in a colorful array of pastels. Known familiarly as "SoBe," the area is now the chicest place to be in all of Miami, and Miami Beach and has been referred to as "America's Riviera."
Art Deco Weekend Festival
Every January in the Art Deco District, the the Miami Design Preservation League hosts the Art Deco Weekend Festival, an event that raises awareness and appreciation of the arts and culture of the Art Deco era. This three-day event originated in 1976 and features more than 85 events including guided tours, a film series, lectures, antiques and art vendors, live music, theatrical and dance performances, classic cars and lots of great food.
