On the road - Miami Art Deco

Miami Beach Art Deco District, Miami, Florida
I am still uploading travel pictures so buckle your seat belts. This series is from our brief stop in Miami before heading to Cuba. We caught the Art Deco Walking Tour which was well worth the ticket price. We are so fortunate that these great buildings have been preserved.
Miami Beach's Art Deco District is the first 20th-century neighborhood to be recognized by the National Register of Historic Places, with 800 structures of historical significance, most built between 1923 and 1943. The fanciful pastel buildings, with porthole windows, ship-like railings, sleek curves, glass blocks, shiny chrome, and gleaming terrazzo floors are prime eye candy.
