Discover the colorful history of the city's distinct architecture with a walk through Art Deco Historic District, boasting nearly 1,000 historical buildings. Bounded by the Atlantic on its eastern side, the district houses vibrantly colored buildings built during an era when the city advertised itself as a "tropical playground." Laid out rapidly in the 1920s and the 1930s, the area developed almost exclusively in the Art Deco, Mediterranean Revival, and Modern styles of architecture. For a self-guided tour of the district's renowned hotels, restaurants, bars, cafes, galleries, and shops, rent a bicycle at any one of nearly 100 bike rental stations scattered around the city.

Very beautiful buildings and sights loved walking around with my old friends. I do wish there was more to do than just walk!

Was there two weeks ago for the annual Art Deco Festival. This place is one of those places that makes me glad I live in South Florida. Went with my wife and my six-year-old grandson. Walked up and down through the booths and had lunch in one of the hotel restaurants on Ocean Drive. Was an enjoyable day.
We really enjoyed our walking tour of the art deco district with Martin. He was extremely knowledgeable and insightful and we were surprised how much we learned that wouldn't be obvious just from exploring the area ourselves. The tour felt a little pricey but it definitely was worth it!
