Don't miss the fantastic architecture of Miami Beach.

The Art Deco District of Miami Beach has become one of the city’s main attractions, and with good reason. The district boasts a good many buildings designed and built in the 1920s and 1930s, and even if you don’t think that style of architecture is cool, it is undeniably highly stylized and retro. The neighborhood bounded by 6th Street to the South, Alton Road to the West, Collins Canal to the north and the Atlantic Ocean to the east has a unique atmosphere. Guests of Southeast Florida Bed and Breakfasts should at the very least drive through the district during their stay.

Today, most of the 800 Art Deco buildings have been restored, and the district is full of cultural hot spots. Start with a walking tour of the district, all of which start at the Art Deco Welcome Center. After the tour, quench your thirst at one of the sidewalk cafes or bars clustered along Ocean Drive, then browse the funky boutiques and antique shops lining Lincoln Road.

If Miami is your point of arrival and departure for a vacation at a Southeast Florida Bed and Breakfast, the Art Deco District is worth a visit.
