Architecture is a Daytime Passion, People Watching is NIGHT!
This tour is identical to the Daytime Art Deco Tour, so please read tour description.
However, at night, everything changes. . . especially the people.
See why fashion designers, photographers, models, and celebrities can't resist living, and "playing", "South Beach-Style"!
Hear about the tragic story of Gianni Versace, and see the steps of his home, where he was murdered, and why it all happened. Visit Ocean Drive, and immerse yourself in the food, fashion, flavors, and "visual candy" of the South Beach experience. Enjoy the international culture, and rich music of different cultures, as they each optimize their 50 feet portion of Ocean Drive.
We will start in downtown Miami, and observe the colorfully lighted buildings of the Financial District. Then, we will cross the MacArthur Causeway, past many celebrity homes, to the famous Art Deco District of South Beach.
We will slowly make our way down Ocean Drive, and fill our senses with every kind of food, fashion and frivolity, as the young locals and visitors mix and mingle. Hear the music and notice the smells that change every 50 feet. If you see someone who looks like a famous celebrity, they probably ARE! We will continue our people watching to Collins Avenue, as the elite shop for Gucci, Armani, and Victoria's Secret. See people lined up for tattoos at the many famous shops on Washington Avenue. Then, we have to make time to see the street performers on Lincoln Road, and the interesting tourists who come to see them. You will not believe what you will see, outdoors, in public. If you like Mardi Gras or Carnival of Rio, then you will love this tour!

Traffic at South Beach at night is always "gridlock". However, we can still nudge our way along this famous stretch of real estate. Flash photography doesn't carry very much distance, so bring extra film and the best camera you have!
Your tour will be by private car. Cost is based on the number of passengers and luggage requirements. For more than 2 people, please contact me before booking.
Your trip to South Beach includes transportation by private car. No food or drinks are included, but we can stop for whatever strikes your interest.
Estimated Local Cash Needed
100 USD - There are no expenses anticipated on this tour. However, if you want to stop and order a "Mojito", or other cocktail, or stop at Victoria's Secret, that's up to you. We will modify our tour to suit your interests, even if you don't know what you want to do until we get there. Bring enough money to satisfy your personal cravings.
Basically, everything besides transportation is extra. You may want to stay in the car and observe, or you may want to step out of the car and start dancing on the sidewalk! If you want to eat, drink, or shop... let me know and we can make that happen.
Pick up at airports or cruise ports require special licensing and fees. Please include your pick-up information, especially regarding any airport or port .
