Miami has a lot more to offer than South Beach which is the main tourist attraction. South Beach was the start of my sight-seeing tour in Florida.
Here are my highlights of 4 hours in South Beach:
1. Ocean Drive – The Ocean Drive is not just a simple road but THE road in Miami. The real stars of that road are not some celebreties or tourists pretending to be famous but the glamourous Art Deco buildings of 1st – 11th Street.
What I wore: white Blouse by MILAN, Pants by ZARA, Strawbag by Sicily Bag, Sunglasses by Fendi , Sandals by TK MAXX.
2. Art Deco Historic district: The Art Deco district, starting on 18th Street, is the centre of South Beach. The gorgeous Hotels with their characteristic facades, the salty sea air and the shimmering light – this is Miami.
3. South Beach – the cubistic inspired life guard stations scattered along the beach are a stunning examples of the classic Art Deco architecture. The geometric shapes paired with the poppy colours of the towers are a must-see – look out for the sugary pink life guard tower directly behind the Beach Patrol!
4. Road A1A – To ride along this road, to open the windows of your convertible, the sunset in your back, watching giant cruise ships passing by – this is the Miami life style!
