Miami Beach with South Beach and Art Deco District, USA

Sunday, September 15, 2013


"Miami, uh, uh Southbeach, bringin the heat, uh" - I heard so many times these lyrics and finally I was there! After Little Havana and Calle OchoCoral Gables and the Downtown, it's time to explore finally Miami Beach with South Beach and the Art Deco District.

Miami and Miami Beach are divided by the Biscayne Bay and connected by four bridges. Along the Julia Tattle Causeway, you can see the Miami Downtown.
You can have such nice landscapes from its bridges: this is what you can see if you drive along the John F Kennedy Causeway.

And now welcome to Miami Beach!

In Miami Beach I was impressed mostly by South Beach and its Art Deco District. Miami South Beach is an area with a fantastic beach, big hotels, the centre of the Miami's nightlife, wonderful sea and even the nice architecture of the Art Deco District.

Since I will uncover the fantastic nightlife in a dedicated post: let's start clearly from the beach. This is the breathtaking view of South Beach at the sunset.

White sand, deep blue sea, a palm tree park where people walk or run: what a fantastic place!

The beach is completely free and during the day you can find so many people around there, taking the sun, having a bath, swimming, chillin, listening to music, sailing or making some watersports such as aquascooter, windsurf or kyte-surf.

What I also loved is this palm tree park that divides Ocean Drive from South Beach

From the Beach you can get to the Miami Art Deco District, also called as Historic Art Deco District.

Also part of this district is the heart of Miami Beach and Miami South Beach: Ocean Drive. Ocean Drive is the most touristic street with many restaurants, bars and clubs.

Following the advice of the Lonely Planet USA's Best Trips (Regional Travel Guide), we got to the luxurious Mondrian Hotel with its Sunset Lounge.

This is the entrance of the hotel, where incredibly the security people thought we were customers! :-)

The Sunset Lounge has two parts: one inside and the other one outside the building.

And this is the vending machine that should have sold even a Bentley or a house, following Lonely Planet (maybe in the past), but it was selling nice design gadgets.

If you want to buy some souvenirs there are many shops over there: we chose the South Beach Club in 601 Collins Ave.
