My husband and I joined owner Marty Mueller for the Art Deco historic tour of Ocean Drive the morning of New Years Eve. Ocean Drive was blocked off to set up for the festivities later that day, and having the freedom of the street was the cherry on top of an informative, entertaining experience. The tour included beautiful touches such... More

The answer is simple: book a walk with Paula Fletcher of Art Deco Walks. Paula knows the scene as well as many of the artists working here and is an encyclopedia of thedistrict's street art. With Paula as your personal... More

My husband, my teenage daughter and I took a wonderful 90 minute walking tour with Marty who was not only very knowledgeable but also entertaining and quite a character. After the tour you will never look at the Art Deco buildings with the same eyes as before. Especially great was a peek into some of the hotels for a comparison... More

Paula Fletcher took us on a fact filled adventure of the Art Deco district of Miami on a beautiful day in December. She started with a brief overview of the overall history of Miami, how it was built and then proceeded to take us to places and buildings we never would have known about or seen on our own. She...

I went on the Art Deco Walking Tour with Marty. He has both a passion and expertise in this style of design. His knowledgable presentation has obviously been expertly cultivated over time and conveyed a wealth information. I would repeat this tour again in the future.

Marty knew one of us before the tour. He took the time to check with each of us, then took us on a tour that exactly fit our needs. About an hour and a half, easy-peasy walking, great glimpses inside and outside the key buildings, and very memorable "lessons" about what we were looking at, the history and importance of... More

Paula's walking tours are fantastic! She has a wealth of knowledge, and as she imparts her stories, you feel as if you were part of the golden era of Miami Beach, when playful art deco design was born. No detail is left out, and as Paula whisks you around Lincoln Road, Collins Ave or Ocean Drive, the tours take you... More
