My weekend South Beach vacay was awesome. Not only because it was in the 80’s and sunny every day (the high temp on Sunday was 91 degrees – a new record), but we stayed in the surreal art deco district and that totally rocked. There are lots of restored buildings with sweet neon lights and cool shapes and they all have signs with hot fonts. The best detail involved cut-out circles and palm trees:
Our hotel was such a rock star that it was just called The Hotel. This is the rooftop pool where I spent too much time in the sun:
Of course it’s fun to see art deco during the day, but I way prefer looking at night, with all of the colors and lights ablaze:
The view along Ocean Drive:
Where else can you see architecture like this:
Even the lifeguard stands are cute:
Like Mr. Bauer sitting on the rooftop pool lounge chair next to me Friday afternoon said, “This is the life!” Life would have been even better if his first name was Jack, but I loved it there. Copy that.
