Welcome to Miami Beach's splendid South Beach with its sandy strands, swaying palms, and pastel-colored buildings that popped up in the 20th century amidst the mangrove to become a swanky resort soon. This audio tour points out the spectacular small Art Deco hotels on Ocean Drive and modern structures and streets of note, too, and is perfect to match with the ultimate beach leisure. You will start the tour in the historic district and see the epic Hotel Breakwater, the set of the iconic Calvin Klein’s 1986 naked photoshoot. You will also muse upon the landmark Waldorf Towers, the Colony Hotel, and many more. Then, you will enjoy scenic lookouts of the South Beach waterfront and beyond at the South Pointe Park Pier. Next, you will get a chance to explore the heritage of the Florida Jews, once predominant in the area, at the Jewish Museum. After that, the opulent villa Casa Casuarina will captivate you with a thrilling story of how fashion designer Gianni Versace lived and died there. In the end, you will stroll the hip main street, Lincoln Road, that hosted the first gay pride parade in 1972 and is now lined with the renowned shopping and art venues. On your way there, you will walk the historic Espanola Way, a quaint throwback to the Old World designed in the 1920s. Join the tour to discover what defined the resort town’s heyday in the past and still attracts holidaymakers from all over the world to Miami Beach!
