About Miami Beach
Miami Beach, connected by bridges to mainland Miami, is a resort city on a barrier island between Biscayne Bay and the Atlantic. Its southern end, South Beach, is famed as a destination for models and celebrities, with a wealth of art deco buildings. Wide beaches line the island’s oceanfront. Nightlife centers on Ocean Drive, running through the Art Deco Historic District. In 1979, Miami Beach's Art Deco Historic District was listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The Art Deco District is the largest collection of Art Deco architecture in the world and comprises hundreds of hotels, apartments and other structures erected between 1913 and 1943.
