South Beach is the stereotype we all think of when we picture Miami. An image from films and TV of vice and gym-toned bodies with the infinite blue of the sea as a backdrop.
Part of Miami Beach, South Beach is a long stunning beach of fine sand, swaying palm trees, shallow waters, and the busiest and most popular beach in Miami.
It is also famous for the colorful Art Deco buildings that have become synonymous with this iconic destination and render it so undeniably photogenic.
It started as farmland in the late 1800s and early 1900s – specifically coconut farming due to the favorable climate. Pioneers created plantations and a small number of residential properties. The abundance of freshwater and quality land attracted more business people to the area.
Miami was experiencing a land boom during the 1920s, and many new towns and residential areas were developed throughout the region. A host of wealthy entrepreneurs constructed grand properties, and thus the reputation of "SoBe" increased.
As the wealthy and elite of Miami invested in South Beach, the neighborhood experienced an architectural boom. Recognizable styles such as Art Deco, Nautical Moderne, and Streamline Moderne were introduced.
Art Deco Miami is an architectural wonder. The city has the highest concentration of Art Deco buildings worldwide. Their preservation has saved the South Beach skyline from becoming a canyon of condos.
The buildings were initially painted white with subtle pastel trim. The candy colors came in the 80s when interior designer Leonard Horowitz devised a palette of tones to draw attention to the architecture.
The perfect gift for wooden jigsaw puzzlers, classic car enthusiasts, Art Deco fans and Miami, Florida lovers, this traditional adult wooden jigsaw puzzle can be done time and again. Our wooden jigsaw puzzle artists have included many shaped whimsy wooden jigsaw puzzle pieces that match the theme of the painting, and we have integrated them in ways that will delight and surprise you as you put the wooden jigsaw puzzle together.
