South Beach (map) is the southernmost point of Miami Beach (web site). It spreads out from south to north, from 1st street to 23th street. It is also the most "ancient" part of Miami as the first building development started here at the beginning of last century.

On 12th June 1913 the Collins Bridge was opened, the toll bridge which was the first continuative connection between the mainland and a barrier island uninhabited until then, situated at some distance from the coast and later to become world famous as Miami Beach.

In South Beach, next to the wide beach facing the Ocean, close to the Collins Bridge, a group of brave developers who would become legend, started the bulding boom which reached a peak in the twenties. Among these pioneers, Carl Gramhar Fischer, eclectic promoter of both the Lincoln Highway, the first to cross the USA, and the Dixie Highway which, linking Indiana to South East Florida, reached Miami.

And it was to the far south of Miami Beach, South Beach, that Fischer, together with other brave investors, started the building of what would soon become one of the most famous and important seaside resorts in the United States.

It was because of the vision, futuristic for the times, of what was to become the most important means of transport, the car, that on that deserted stretch of sand separated from the coast, Fischer and others built a complex of hotels and residential blocks in few years and in the same style,

that Art Deco which is still a typical feature of South Beach.

Today South Beach is of the few seaside resorts where the tourist can spend the whole day

from the beach,


to bars, restaurants


and night clubs.

Paradoxically the town born for car tourism, in the age of mass long-distance air transport allows the visitor to live comfortably without a car.

Along Ocean Drive .


as well as Lincoln Rd


and Espanola Way.
