Staying in The Art Deco District in Miami

If you're visiting the district for the first time there's no better way than with the guidance of an expert. During a typical tour you can expect to explore some of the district's many Miami Beach hotels, restaurants and a number of other buildings, you may even have an opportunity to look around inside. It was clearly spelt out in my hire agreement for the 4WD that I should drive only 2 hours either side of the low tide.The sand there has the most unusual colors mostly reds and yellows but there are several hues in between. The entire district is in the National Register of Historic Places, built between the 1920s and 1943. The district is made up predominantly of hotels and apartments, the majority of which were erected between 1923 and 1943.The South Beach District at the south end of Miami Beach has a youthful party town atmosphere, with several popular night spots open all night every night. I believe that the stunning range of nature in this area would satsify anybody who appreciates the natural world.At 1001 Ocean Drive is the Art Deco Welcome Center, open every day with a souvenir gift shop. It was important to choose a 4 wheel drive vehicle that could handle the beach and particularly the sandy tracks.What stood out for me were the large sand dunes that littered the landscape and from which you can view the coast if you are game enough to climb to the top. In 1979 the Art Deco District was officially recognised as a place worthy of preservation and listed on the US government's National Register of Historic Places, making it one of the first cities to be listed on the register.It took my breath away. The paved and wooded walkway winds down Ocean Drive and behind the ocean front hotels, providing views of the hotel pools on one side and the Atlantic Ocean on the other.Miami Vacation Packages South Beach\n hotel ocean miami
