Did you know that Miami Beach is mostly man-made? And that Biscayne Bay used to be a shallow swamp? And that Muhammad Ali became world boxing champion for the first time right here in Miami Beach? Miami Beach history is riddled with enchanting stories, and I have made it my mission to bring these tales to life through extensive research, engaging storytelling and passion. I'm excited to offer a captivating guided walking tour through the heart of Miami Beach, where we will delve into its checkered past and relive its history over time, which is truly stranger than fiction. Our journey will take us along iconic streets of South Beach leading us through lobbies and rooftops of exquisite Art Deco hotels. You'll gain insights into early days evolution, The Great Depression, city’s unique architecture, Black history, Jewish history, Cuban migration, the notorious cocaine cowboys’ era, the influence of "Miami Vice," the infamous murder of Gianni Versace, plenty of hidden gems, and much more. This tour offers an exciting time-travel experience, full of imagery, detail, and insight, revealing a side of the city even locals are yet to uncover. Discover the true spirit of Miami Beach beyond the typical tourist routes and simplified clichés, so many visitors get trapped in. You'll walk away with a newfound appreciation for Magic City.
