A few decades ago, the area along Biscayne Boulevard from 54th to 77th streets was lined with motels in mid-20th-century architecture. It quickly developed a bad reputation (think drugs and prostitution) but has since been revitalized, thanks to developers and locals hoping to preserve the iconic Miami Modern style. Today there’s a mix of boutiques and restaurants, Art Deco motels on Biscayne, and the iconic 35-foot Coppertone Girl sign.
