Glitzy, different, beautiful. Walk it day or night, it charms and delights. Walk it on the other side of the restaurants and you'll see it better and you don't get accosted by hostesses trying to drag you into their place to eat and overcharge you, esp. on the drinks.

Nice area to visit in South Beach. More architectural art than actual art for sale. Be sure and take the tour where they explain much of the history associated with the architecture. If you want to buy art go to Little Havana.

As you walk the area you can just imagine it in the 1930's. With 800 structures of historical significance, most built between 1923 and 1943. The fanciful pastel buildings, with porthole windows, ship-like railings, sleek curves, glass blocks, shiny chrome, and gleaming terrazzo floors are prime eye candy. The area was well known as the district where Italian fashion designer... More
