I have recently returned from a holiday to America, visiting Palm Beach and Miami, before going onto New York.
We stayed in Miami for 3 days, most of which was spent on South Beach and Ocean Drive, which is renowned for it's 1930s Art Deco architecture.
Walking along Ocean Drive the atmosphere was energetic and vibrant, with a very elite aura within many of the bars.
It was interesting to see the vast difference in the quality of life when driving out of the cities main tourist roads. All of the houses seemed very run down, they were small shacks that looked shabby and wouldn't stand a chance if a hurricane hit it.
I loved the amount of Art Deco. So many different colours and styles, some with colour co-ordinating vintage cars parked outside. We also spotted the Versache Mansion (photograph above) where Gianni Versache was shot and killed.
We did a bit of shopping in Urban Outfitters and Kid Robot, and Steve bought a Cuban cigar hand made on the street.
I shall definitely return!
