Art & Architecture

Miami Native Tours | Little Haiti | Miami City Tours

The Art Deco Center does a great art deco walking tour but it only covers a few blocks. Their museum is great too!  I suggest doing the MDPL walking tour and then calling me to see the rest of South Beach from a South Beach resident!  South Beach has 5 distinct zones and takes over an hour to see all 5 in detail, but the MDPL is a good start.

I am especially good at the nooks and crannies in Northeast Miami: Morningside and Miami Shores, and the Coconut Grove/Coral Gables hidden gems. My favorite architectural sites are:

  • 1111 Lincoln Road
  • Perez Museum
  • Freedom Tower
  • Biltmore Hotel
  • El Jardin
  • 8 international villages of Coral Gables
  • Vizcaya
  • Twisted Sisters in Coconut Grove
  • Bacardi Building
  • Buena Vista on up to the gentrifying Upper Eastside. Nobody knows this neighborhood better!
  • Miami Shores for Spanish Mediterranean and the Pink House

Art sites include:

De la Cruz Collection

Marguilles Collection

Rubell Family Collection

Perez Museum

Many other galleries and collection
