welcome to Miami Beach bienvenidos a la playa de Miami. Today we’re in Miami, a city that’s a melting pot of culture diversity food art and entertainment. Let’s go check it out. They have Art Deco walking tours here at 10:30 a.m. and Thursdays at 6:30 p.m. The architecture is one of the most unique highlights of Miami. Did you know that the Art Deco district in South Beach claims the largest concentration of 1920s and 1930s architecture in the world? Today South Beach is home to over 800 Art Deco structures. So we are walking down Collins Avenue and right here around 10th Street they have some of the most beautiful Art Deco architecture ever. These retro pastel colored buildings give the city its charm and have been featured in numerous movies including Scarface The Birdcage and bad boys 2. Not to be missed are their brightly colored lifeguard towers which you’ll find throughout Miami Beach and South Beach. And of course the highlight of Miami are the beaches which are cosmopolitan and tropical. In fact the water at Miami Beach is warm enough for swimming year-round. And if you love the look of these beaches as much as we do hit the like button down below! This is the Starlight Hotel Boulevard in the Colony Miami is one of the best cities for people-watching – you never know what you’ll find. It might even be the next undiscovered musician. Now we head to downtown Miami’s Museum Park to check out the Perez Art Museum. We are going to the Perez Museum. Miami! The Perez Art museum has a collection of modern and contemporary art as well as a terrace with beautiful Hanging Gardens the museum also houses interactive art works including Venezuelan artist Jesús Rafael Soto’s “penetrable”. This kinetic art piece explores movement in space and invites visitors to walk through and essentially complete the artwork. So we just finished up at the Perez Museum behind me and right here you can see the road that takes you to South Beach and then look at all these beautiful yachts and the cruise ships are right here now we head to the nearby Coconut Grove neighborhood of Miami to visit one of the most elegant old-world estates we have reached the Vizcaya museum and gardens. This is a little bit south of the downtown lush gardens. Vizcaya is a little taste of the Great Gatsby life in Miami it was built between 1914 and 1922 admission tickets $18 for adults so James Deering was the winner of this beautiful house and he lived here during the winter months. In the early 1900s and he made his money producing farming machinery these murals here and then check out the ceiling and the floor Vizcaya is noteworthy for adapting historic European aesthetics to South Florida’s subtropic region and they enclosed this part due to humidity and this museum became public in 1952. So I’m at the Vizcaya right now this is the facade of the building and then behind me you can see the ocean. My favorite part of Vizcaya are these beautiful gardens – look at these turrets and everything you see here they used local coral stone which ages very quickly and creates this really cool antique look. The estate is a total of 50 acres of which 10 acres contain Italian Renaissance formal gardens, The gardens here are one of the most picturesque spots in Miami but be sure to watch out for unexpected showers. It’s raining, it’s pouring, the old man is snoring. [music] all that rain brought out some of the most unusual critters there’s crab right here on that note we’re out of here but be sure to stay tuned and subscribe because coming up next the Wynwood Walls and little Havana you don’t want to miss it!
