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
- 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
Rubell Family Collection
Many other galleries and collection
