Tropical Deco in a Fabled Playground Deco Tour

Tropical Deco in a Fabled Playground Deco Tour with Lunch Departure at 10am– Return to the Hotel at 2pm

Enjoy a historian-guided Art Deco tour that captures the glitz and glamour of the roaring twenties and thirties in our nation’s only Art Deco Historic District. We’ll immerse you in the visual thrill of a city that defiantly danced until dawn through Prohibition, the depression, major hurricanes and two World Wars, and share the history of a district that almost didn’t survive.

We’ll revisit the larger-than-life personalities and world-famous events that reshaped society through the lens of Miami Beach’s unique architecture. We’ll walk the halls of the first hotel ever built on Miami Beach and delight in the imaginative and playful Art Deco lifeguard stands lining the beach like pastel-colored toy soldiers. Chart the evolution of architectural styles while unique and evocative Art Deco landmarks serve as our signposts to an era that looked forward to the future and celebrated progress, innovation, adventure and freedom.

As your guide uncovers the eye-popping history of this unique destination, you will understand why millionaires, movie stars, thousands of soldiers and countless others have fallen under the magical spell of Miami Beach and its incredible architecture.

Following the tour, we’ll enjoy a delicious lunch at Tapas y Tintos on Espanola Way
