Art Deco in Miami
Miami is such an incredible city that’s filled with fantastic food, wonderful people, a rich culture, and more, and if you love art deco architecture, it’s time to start planning a trip. This popular art style is featured all throughout the city so much so that there’s even an Art Deco District. There are a plethora of different places that you should visit in Miami if you’re a fan of the art deco style, but before you go, check out some of the following tips to help you get ready for your trip.
Where To Stay
You’re certainly not going to be short of options for where to stay in Miami, especially if you’re looking to get your beauty rest in a hotel that features art deco architecture. For example, you can stay at the Breakwater Hotel or The Clevelander. Keep in mind that, considering how popular the places are and how they’re centrally located, it’s better to book your reservations sooner than later to ensure you’ll be able to get the room you want, where you want.
What To Eat
Trying to figure out what to eat? Be prepared to have a lot of places from which to choose in and near the Art Deco District. For example, you can grab some food at Mango’s Tropical Cafe, Cafe Milano, Senor Frogs, or The Clevelander Bar. Whether you’re looking for some stellar mojitos, decadent desserts, a really well-made cup of coffee, or food you’ll be talking about for years, there’s a little something for everyone in Miami.
Art Deco Weekend
Attend this event and you’ll never want to leave. Hosted by the Miami Design Preservation League, the event unfortunately already passed for 2017 (it ran from January 13 – 15), but that doesn’t mean you can’t make plans to attend it next year. There were exhibits, kid’s shows, classic car shows, lectures, live music, and more. It’s a weekend worth planning for.
Art Deco Tour
Speaking of the Miami Design Preservation League, they also host an art deco walking tour that you can attend while you’re in Miami. Tickets range in price from $20 to $25; tours run 1.5 hours and they depart every day at 10:30am with an additional tour at 6:30pm on Thursdays. You don’t need to make reservations in advance but you can buy your tickets online. Tours leave from the Art Deco Welcome Center on Ocean Drive.
The aforementioned is just the beginning of where you can go and what you can do when you want to delve into art deco architecture in Miami. The list of fabulous places to visit, which also includes the Colony Theater and the Bass Museum, goes on and on. To make sure you have time to do everything you want, it’s best if you come up with some type of itinerary in advance so you’ll have an idea of how to plan your days. With that said, who’s ready to pack their bags for Miami?
