Art Déco Tour
1001 Ocean Drive
This ninety-minute walking tour provides an introduction to the Art Deco, Mediterranean Revival, and Miami Modern (MiMo) styles found within the Miami Beach Architectural Historic District. Explore hotels, restaurants, and other commercial structures with a visit to a number of interiors.
Once an area solely dedicated to interior design, the district now boasts a bevy of top fashion design shops like Louis Vuitton, Christian Dior, Céline and Fendi. There are also plenty of places to kick off your Louboutins and take a break from high-end shopping, including South Street, the buzzed-about soul-food eatery from Amir Ben-Zion and Amaris Jones.
Miami City Ballet
2200 Liberty Avenue
The company will celebrate their 29th season this year—under the leadership of Cuban-born artistic director Lourdes Lopez—performing classics like George Balanchine’s The Nutcracker and Romeo and Juliet alongside premieres of works by Jerome Robbins and choreographer Justin Peck.
1700 Washington Avenue
The historic venue where The Ed Sullivan Show was often film was home to Jackie Gleason for much of the 1960s and continues the tradition by bringing some of the biggest music acts to South Florida.
Wynwood Arts District
Since it opened in 2009 Wynwood has been the home to over 70 art galleries, retail stores and restaurants. The once neglected warehouses and shuttered factories have been transformed into performing art spaces and cafes that provide a flourishing arts scene.
