Walking backward while talking is useful for leading a tour, demonstrating a moonwalk, or retreating from a room full of ominously staring toddlers. See the reverse saunter put to good use with today's Groupon: for $20 you get two tickets to a guided Art Deco District walking tour from Miami Design Preservation League (up to a $40 value).
Miami Design Preservation League stokes all sectors of the cerebrum with nonprofit cultural and educational programs, each designed to preserve, protect, and promote Miami's rich environmental and architectural integrity. During the 90-minute Art Deco District walking tour, local historians and architects will introduce artistically inclined walkers and lapsed ergonomists to the many structural styles found within the Miami Beach Architectural Historic District.
As guests stroll through the scenic borough, they'll become acquainted with the area’s art deco, Mediterranean, and Miami Modern design styles by closely inspecting elegant hotels and restaurants, and using a comically large magnifying glass to view their blueprints. The Art Deco Gift Shop, located at Tenth Street and Ocean Drive in Miami Beach, serves as the epicenter of every outing, offering structural support to both departing and returning tours.
