Miami Beach

Located in the southern part of Florida and known worldwide as SoBe (South Beach) the Miami Beach area is not limited to the normal beach side activities. The unique immigrant Cuba culture is visible in the pastel colors that dominate homes, shops, restaurants and bars.

Made famous by movies like Scarface and Cage au Folles and television shows like CSI Miami the most memorable part of SoBe is the Art Deco National Historic District that is comprised of a few dozen ’20s and ’30s buildings that have characteristic pastel colors and streamlined rectilinear forms. Miami Beach definitely lives up to its lively party town image.
