Hotel St Augustine
Jutting out into the Atlantic east of Miami proper, Miami Beach contains the world’s largest collection of art-deco structures. Between 1923 and 1943, hundreds of houses, hotels, and apartments were built in this symmetrically linear style, best appreciated on a guided art-deco walking tour. Knowledgeable guides lead 90-minute tours of the buildings each morning, leaving from the Art Deco Welcome Center.The Historic Virginia Key Beach Park, a small, undeveloped island off the coast of Miami, was once Miami’s only designated beach for African Americans during segregation. The city closed it in 1982, but the beach reopened in 2008 after adding an antique carousel, an old-fashioned train ride, and nature trails along its sandy shoreline.
