Which Way to The Birdcage?

Florida - South Beach, Miami

For: US to US Traveling Envelope Round Robin - Group 74: Nightviews
Notes: My only knowledge of South Beach in Miami comes from the movie The Birdcage.  South Beach, which was originally farmland,  was the first area of Miami to be developed, starting in 1910.   Many buildings were built in an Art Deco style in the 1930s, but many of those were lost to developers in the 1980s.  Today, South Beach is very popular with tourists, and features numerous hotels, restaurants, nightclubs and boutiques.  And of course, as shown in The Birdcage, the area has a large LGBT community.
