South Beach owes its cosmopolitan spirit to the mixed national structure, and more importantly, to the tolerance between those nations.

The development of this area was the most intense during the 1930es, when a wave of newcomers came to South Beach and built dozens of Art Deco buildings were built. Also, during the 1970es, South Beach became a sort of resort for the LGBT community. The new residents helped revitalizing the threadbare buildings and built new ones.

  1. I would kindly ask that you research the Miami Seaquarium before recommending it. It is an old, rundown facility where animals suffer. The publicly available Marine Mammal Inventory Report shows that dolphins die regularly and at a very young age, of unnatural causes. Lolita the killer whale was stolen from her family. She lives in the SMALLEST orca tank in N America, it is in violation of the Animal Welfare act even! She is NOT the oldest whale in the world. Wild female orcas like to be over 100 years old, Lolita is only 51.

      Hey Wendy, thanks for pointing this out to me. I wrote the article from personal experience from a couple of years ago. I think it was 2010 when I went there. If it’s true (and I do believe you) then it’s freaking upsetting. The fact that us (tourists( don’t realize/care about it, is even worse. Thanks again for pointing this to us. Will delete it from the post, screw them.

        That is awesome…thanks so much! It unfortunately is all true. We are doing our best to get the word out to locals and tourists that it’s not a fun place for the animals but it’s tough, so every little bit helps. Miami Seaquarium originally had two whales, Lolita and Hugo. They kept them together in an even smaller pool. Hugo was a teenager and never adjusted to life in a tank. He died a few years after capture after banging his head repeatedly on the tank wall causing an brain aneurism. Poor Lolita was reported as having cracked and bleeding skin from the intense sun and crying all night after her capture. Unfortunately the tank has never been expanded or a shade put up, even. If you visit my site I have lots of videos and news links to learn more. Thanks so much for your consideration! 🙂

          Miami Children’s Museum or Crandon Beach Park are a couple great alternatives for families visiting Miami. 🙂

            Thanks Wendy, you’re awesome :). I’ve deleted the part about Seaquarium – you were totally right, it’s horrible. I’m finding all sorts of articles all over Google about it and it’s just horrible…

          • Z says:

            Hey Wendy, I just realized that you’ve mentioned something about spreading the word about the conditions at Seaquarium. Do you have a website or FB page, maybe? We’d be glad to get involved!

          • Wendy King says:

            Definitely! http://www.ShutDownPalace.net has info on upcoming protests all over the US & Canada as well as videos and info on Lolita. We have 10 protests this Saturday from Miami to New York to California, people can visit the website to see a full list and get involved. 🙂 You can also go to Facebook.com/ShutDownPalace for info.
