Art Deco Architecture

Most people think that America lacks character because its so new and all the buildings are made out of concrete and look the same. After spending nearly a year there I can vouch that for the most part this is true, in Florida anyway. However on a trip to Miami's, South Beach I was struck by the amazing Art Deco style architecture. The majority of these buildings function as hotels that have been restored and modernised, some act as restaurants or bars but for about 15 blocks thats all you can see! Sleek smooth lines running up and down the buildings giving the area so much character, class and style! It was one of the most beautiful cities I have ever been in not just because of the style of the buildings, but also because of the uniqueness of the place its self! I've really never seen anything like it!
