Miami Beach is a coastal resort city in Florida. The municipality is located on natural and man-made barrier islands that sit between the Atlantic Ocean and Biscayne Bay. Miami Beach is part of South Beach, the commercial center of Southern Florida. Since the early 20th century, Miami Beach has been recognized as one of the most popular beach destinations in the United States.
Miami Beach's Art Deco Historic District is the largest collection of Art Deco architecture in the world and comprises hundreds of hotels, apartments, and other structures erected between 1923 and 1943. The Mediterranean, Streamline Moderne, and Art Deco styles are represented in the district. In 1979, the Art Deco Historic District was listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
As Miami Beach's Art Deco District grew in popularity, the South Beach area became a go-to spot for vacationers, tourists, and TV and movie crews. Today, Miami Beach accounts for more than half of tourism to Miami Dade County.
Due to Miami's dense, urban nature, and pedestrian-friendly streets, many Miami Beach residents and visitors explore the area on foot or by bicycle.
