Overview

Tour this winter playground rich in history and tropical allure. The resort city's amenities are illustrated in beautiful, hand-tinted picture postcards that date to the early 1900s. The city's history unfolds with images of the Sunken Gardens, home to hundreds of tropical plant species; the Coliseum, considered the finest ballroom in the South, and the luxurious Vinoy Park Hotel. Join the hordes as they relax on Central Avenue's famous green benches, eye the yachts along the waterfront, or feed pelicans at the pier. You'll even get a glimpse at the Sunshine City's famous Open Air Post Office, where many of the 340 vintage postcards started their journey to the 21st century.
