About Miami Beach
The city of Miami Beach was established in 1917. Development boomed during the 1920s and 1930s as wealthy people from the North and Midwest came to Miami Beach to build winter homes. Many wealthy northerners also vacationed in the city, which led to the building of many hotels, such as The Fleetwood, The Flamingo, The Floridian and the Roney Plaza. Many of the structures built between 1923 and 1943 comprise Miami Beach’s well-known Art Deco Historic District. The district was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1979 and remains a popular sightseeing attraction among residents and tourists.
