Holocaust Memorial Miami Beach

Conceived in 1984 by a group of Holocaust survivors in Miami, the Holocaust Memorial in Miami Beach is a profoundly powerful experience. Miami Beach is a perfect location for the site, as the South Florida area is home to a number of Holocaust survivors. Before its construction, objections were raised by some who believed that Miami Beach was a symbol of fun and a holocaust memorial would put a damper on that image. However, after the group of survivors pleaded their case, the memorial was finally approved. The Holocaust Memorial is a solemn reminder of crimes against humanity, as The Sculpture of Love and Anguish (the focal point of the site) can be a heart-wrenching reminder of the past. The thousands of victims' names etched into the luminous black granite Memorial Wall is one of the most emotional reads visitors are ever likely to experience.

The Barnacle Historic State Park

Unlike many of South Florida's state parks, Barnacle State Historic Park is centrally-located and easily accessible by automobile. Just off the main street in trendy Coconut Grove, this five-acre (2.02 hectare) historic site offers visitors a glimpse into a past full of beauty and luxury. This stately structure was originally the home of Ralph Middleton Munroe, a landowner and yacht enthusiast who hailed from New York. Before and after Munroe's passing, measures were taken to assure that the property reflected South Florida's culture and blossoming heritage. Guests can tour Munroe's home or explore the lush land outside. The park also offers ample amenities for wildlife watching and picnicking.

Venetian Pool

The picturesque Venetian Pool is truly a one-of-a-kind attraction. This public swimming pool, chiseled out of a coral rock quarry in the 1920s, looks like a natural rock formation, except that no natural rock formation could be so perfectly suited to human enjoyment. This historical landmark is a work of art with its gushing fountains, coral caves and waterfalls. The 820,000 gallons of cool, refreshing spring water are replaced daily. Tours are conducted here.

Coral Castle

Per anni questa fenomenale opera d'arte ha affascinato persone di tutto il mondo. Il creatore del Coral Castle ha scolpito il suo mondo fantastico nella pietra usando solo strumenti fatti in casa. Lo scultore lettone-americano Edward Leedskalnin ha impiegato più di due decenni per creare il Coral Castle. Si pensa comunemente che il castello sia stato costruito in corallo, ma in realtà è stato scolpito in calcare oolitico e non è stata utilizzata alcuna malta. Il complesso del castello comprende una meridiana, un telescopio polare, mobili, ecc. Questo luogo è un'importante attrazione turistica ed è La testimonianza degli immensi sforzi di Leedskalnin.

Miccosukee Indian Village & Airboat Rides

Generations ago, Miccosukees, a branch of the Seminole tribe, took refuge from the Seminole wars in the depths of the Everglades marshland. At this enclave you can see a typical village of thatched-roof, open-sided huts. Tiny squares of brightly colored cloth pieced into the famous Seminole quilting patterns unique to the tribe make wonderful souvenirs. Airboat rides on flat-bottomed craft propelled by jet engines skim across the Everglades for a look at alligators. At special shows, brave wrestlers tackle the toothy reptiles to show you their lethal teeth.
