Miami Beach

Miami Beach - The historic welcome sign as you enter mid beach off of the Julie Tuttle Causeway.

The City of Miami Beach is a barrier island known for its Art Deco Historic District which is one of the world’s most noteable. The Beach (as we call it) is accessible by car, scooter, bike or MetroBus via several causeways. It offers a young and hip scene that’s very attractive to tourists. South Beach is great for shopping, dining and having a great time. Mid-Beach and North Beach can be quieter and less expensive but still close.
