Make your way down the renowned Lincoln Road, which extends from the Atlantic Ocean to the east and Biscayne Bay to the west on Miami Beach. It attracts over 11 million visitors annually due to its premier shopping, restaurants, nightlife, and architecture. When famed architect Morris Lapidus was asked to redesign Lincoln Road in the 1960s, his distinguished style positioned the road as one of the most luxurious destinations in the city during that time.

Your tour guide will share the fascinating history of the area with you as you explore it firsthand.
