Overview

From the early 1900s, when visitors reached the sparkling new bathing resort by ferry, to the heydey of Art Deco hotels in the 1930s and beyond, Miami Beach has cast its spell over millions of people and been transformed into a world-class travel destination. Sandy beaches, a balmy climate, a vibrant local community, and a distinctive architectural heritage certainly make Miami Beach a one-of-a-kind city.
