    Miami is a spectrum of dazzle...

    by la_beba Written Aug 26, 2002

    Miami is a spectrum of dazzle and activity, where all the jazzy colors of ritzy living meet the cool pastels of one of Florida's original vacation hot spots. Beginning as a small second-rate tourist town at the turn of the century, Miami boomed in the 1920s and has grown and added to its diversity ever since. Miami had its own 'Little Broadway' in the 1920s, was a center for the Art Deco movement in the 30s and 40s, thrived as a military base in World War II, and has since grown to be both a Latin American center and a sleek metropolitan community. There are literally millions of ways to spend your time in Miami. But if you are inclined to sightsee, the Art Deco District contains over 800 buildings in this distinct architectural style, and Ocean Drive is known for its bustling activity and sidewalk cafes.

    Visitar el Monoriel de Miami. Creo que es el tour mas barato del mundo (US$ 0.50)por el cual das un hermoso paseo aereo por el Centro de la ciudad, incluso se pasa por dentro de algunos edificios. Este el es transporte público, que equivale a una red de metro de otras ciudades.

    Freedom Tower

    by OrlandoBR Written Feb 19, 2003
    A famous Miami postcard

    Built in 1925, it once housed a newspaper. Now it is empty, but has been renovated a few years ago, so it looks brand new.

    A Miami landmark

    This high building in Downtown Miami is lit by powerful lights every night, and they will be colorful during holidays or sometimes in weekends.

    Just walking through the Miami park system is a treasure. In and around the Miami area, there are walking excursions that are awesome. You might just find entertainment at any corner!
