Sharon Stone, Sylvester Stallone, Wesley Snipes, Marisa Tomei, Angelica Houston, Arnold Schwarzenegger, James Woods, Jamie Lee Curtis, Whitney Houston, Kevin Costner and Sean Connery have all appeared in films shot in Miami in recent years. Fashion and commercial photo shoots are commonplace throughout South Beach.

Travel Trackers walking tour

On Lincoln Road and Ocean Drive in South Beach lies the largest and most fabulous collection of art deco architecture in the world. Art Deco evolved out of a stunning archeological find in Egypt - the discovery of the tomb of King Tutankhamen. Soon, a fascination for Ancient Egypt found expression in clothing, jewelry, furniture, graphic design and - of course - architecture. The designs were developed by six Parisian architects in the 1920's. They utilizied the forms and angled shapes of ancient Egyptian motifs and buildings with the natural elements of the land and sea of South Florida.
