Art Deco In South Beach

Wordless Wednesday - Art Deco Neighborhood Hotel area  in South Beach

I love the Art Deco Neighborhood in South Beach, Florida. We recently visited the National Hotel  at 1677 Collins Ave on the beach! The charming hotel boasted a lovely indoor  restaurant and an outdoor beach restaurant ( the Aqua Club) t that served any sandwich on a delicious gluten free roll (Aqua Club menu) I ate the grilled veggie sandwich and was not disappointed.
