"Watch The Life-guards" Beaches/South Beach/Art Deco District Tip by RoyJava

by RoyJava

You've seen them ... the life-guards in their pastel structures blend 1920s Art Deco with 1960s pop-culture themes stations. They are among the most intriguing pieces of beachfront architecture in Art Deco Miami Beach. Their whimsical station-names sound like "Boomerang Putting Green", "Man-o'-War", and "Purple Fuselage". They are payed by government and some are certified lifeguards. Special to tourists: -> watch these beach guys ... and their local warnings (ripp current, jellyfishes, shark-alarm ...) ... of maybe better, embrace them!
