Miami Beach is a world-famous destination known for its beach, entertainment, and historic art deco buildings.  This city, which is comprised of several man-made barrier islands, is located between Biscayne Bay and the Atlantic Ocean.  The city is accessible via MacArthur Causeway and the Venetian Causeway from the east, and from Collins Avenue and Alton Road from the north.   Miami Beach is located within Miami-Dade County, and is distinct city from Miami and the Greater Miami area.

The land which later became Miami Beach was purchased by Henry and Charles Lum in 1870.  The father and son team purchased the land for a mere 75 cents an acre.  One of the first steps towards development was planting a coconut plantation along the shore in the 1880s.  John S. Collins, of Collins Avenue fame, was one of the first investors in the project.   Collins’ family saw a huge potential in developing the area into a beach resort.  During the early 20th century joint efforts between the Collins family, the Lummus brothers, and Carl G. Fisher took place towards developing the land as a beach resort area.

In March 1915, the town of Miami Beach was born.  It grew to become a city sometime around 1917.  Carl G. Fisher, of Fisher Island fame, was the main promoter of the development taking place in Miami Beach.  In order to accommodate wealthy tourists, several luxury hotels were built, including The Nautilus, The Flamingo Hotel, and the Roney Plaza Hotel.  During the 1930s the city of Miami Beach remained popular among tourists, and investors began constructing small-scale hotels in the Art Deco style, paving the way for today’s Historic Art Deco District.

Miami Beach is an ideal place for people to call home or to consider a vacation getaway destination.  Homes on Miami Beach can range from waterfront homes to waterfront condos and everything in between.  Whether seeking your everyday luxury home on a gate-guarded island or an upscale condo in a building with resort-like amenities and 24/7 concierge services, Miami Beach has something for everyone.
