Miami Beach is known for its art deco architecture, a design style of the 1920s and '30s that's characterized by bold colors and geometric shapes. It often incorporates styles of cubism, expressionism and other varying art movements. You'll spot this architectural style adorning the city's gorgeous hotels, storefronts, restaurants and buildings that line South Beach. The best way to experience all the art deco Miami Beach has to offer is on a walking tour of the South Beach neighborhood.

Several outfitters offer tours, including the Miami Design Preservation League and Art Deco Walks, and prices start at $25 per person.

Visitors who took an art deco tour said they enjoyed seeing and learning about the beautifully preserved architecture. Travelers said both the tours offered by the Miami Design Preservation League and Art Deco Walks feature informative guides who provide a wealth of fascinating facts and are happy to answer questions.

Tour times and lengths vary by company, but most last around 90 minutes and are offered one to two times a day. If you don't have time for a guided tour, it's worth taking a stroll through the Art Deco Historic District, which sits between 5th Street and 23rd Street along Ocean Drive, Collins Avenue and Washington Avenue. For information on art deco tours, schedules and costs, visit the individual outfitters' websites.

Travelers see South Beach not only as one of the best vacation areas in Florida, but as one of the best in the country. Popular perception has somewhat pigeonholed the area as being reserved exclusively for the young and beautiful and 24-hour partiers, but that's not necessarily the case. The truth is that South Beach welcomes anyone looking for pristine sand, amazing food and yes, a buzzing nightlife.
