Art Deco at its best

James is one of the best tour guides. He has a unique South Beach history he loves to share, and clearly loves the Art Deco buildings we saw. Have done the Art Deco tour in Chicago, but he explained the different elements a bit better. Concentrated on Art Deco, but also explained South Beach history. South Beach is fortunate to have such a great tour guide, and yay for the Preservation Society.
