Although many tourists think of them as one, Miami and Miami Beach are actually two cities that have something in common. They are both hot in every way imaginable! Located well below Florida’s frost line, their climate is always tropical, and their heat extends to every part of your experience as a visitor. Hot nightlife, cuisine, entertainment, art, music and culture are the essence of Miami and Miami Beach. Credit the Cuban, Caribbean and South American influences for adding a gorgeous Latin personality and warmth to every aspect of these cities. “Muy caliente!” will be the first Spanish words you’ll learn when you ask anyone about Miami and Miami Beach.

Miami and Miami Beach extend an open invitation year-round to the LGBT visitor. You’ll want to check with The Hub – LGBT Center and The Greater Miami Convention and Visitors Bureau for the roster of hot annual LGBT parties and events, and for help with all the logistics of your visit.

In February, the Gay8 Festival is a free street fair celebrating the LGBT community in Miami’s Little Havana neighborhood.  In March, the venerable Winter Party Festival is a weeklong benefit reaching a crescendo with a huge and delirious Sunday dance on the beach.  In April, the OUTshine Film Festival brings you screenings of great LGBT films at several different venues. Also in April, dazzling Miami Beach Gay Pride is a fabulous spectacle for locals and visitors. In May, long-running Aqua Girl is a lively one-week benefit for the ladies. Also in May, Sizzle Miami is an all-welcoming week celebrating the LGBT community of color. In July, Out In The Tropics is an LGBT performing arts festival. In October, Celebrate Orgullo is a day of events honoring LGBT Latino heritage. In November, the legendary entertainment festival White Party Week continues to be the starring event of the year as it has been for decades.

Where will you stay? Your choices abound. Consider the comfort and convenience of a dozen Marriott hotels throughout the city and on the beach. Just off Lincoln Road, you’ll find the Hôtel Gaythering to be not just gay but gay fabulous. Similar fine choices for lodging on Miami Beach include The Alexander, the Hotel Victor, Beacon South Beach Hotel, and Design Suites.

In the evening or at tea dance, where will you count yourself among the beautiful people? Your best bets for “Livin’ la vida loca” are Score Nightclub, Twistand Palace Bar.  When you get hungry, just follow the crowd to 11thStreet Diner.  You’ll find that Miami and Miami Beach folks live up to their reputation as chic and stylish, but in a casual way. Think unbuttoned rather than buttoned down.

In Miami and Miami Beach, the art galleries, performance venues, and museums are world-class. Those who are lured by the sun and sand of sexy South Beach will also appreciate the many cultural attractions close by. Funtravelguides.com will keep you up to date on all that colorful Miami and Miami Beach have to offer.

Miami Design Preservation League / Art Deco Museum

1001 Ocean Drive
Miami Beach

Miami Beach’s building boom came during the second phase of Art Deco known as Streamline Moderne, which began with the stock market crash and ended in most cases with the outbreak of World War II. It was less decorative—a more sober reflection of the Great Depression. It relied more on machine-inspired forms, and American ideas in industrial design. It was buttressed by the belief that times would get better and was infused with the optimistic futurism extolled at America’s Worlds Fairs of the 1930s. Stripped Classic or Depression Moderne was a sub-style often used for governmental buildings, the U.S. Post Office being the best example in Miami Beach. Miami Beach architects used local imagery to create what we now call Tropical Deco. These buildings feature relief ornamentation featuring whimsical flora, fauna and ocean-liner motifs to reinforce the image of Miami Beach as a seaside resort.  The Art Deco Museum is open Tues-Sun 10am – 5pm.
