Early in the 20th century, a few farsighted tycoons, mostly from the Midwest , who had their fortunes in the burgeoning automobile industry, separately conceived an idea for a playground for the leisure class. Among their most preposterous projects was the dredging of Biscayne Bay to create a man-made beach paradise offshore. This new, elegant, city of Miami was created out of a mangrove swamp; for those lucky enough to afford the pristine homes built along the new white sand bulkheads of this beautifully engineered paradise. There were some unforeseen additional benefits to the dredging of the bay and filling the sand pit-come-mangrove swamp that had been the foundation of the new beach front. Mosquitoes and sand flies no longer had a place to breed. High-stakes’ yacht races could be found in the new deep water of Biscayne Bay,formerly a shallow lagoon.
Miami and its cities became a vacation spot, Miami Beach, soon became as famous as the new winter home of the millionaires. The real estate entrepreneurs were delighted to find that dredging the waters was surprisingly inexpensive. Because there was no rock or coral to get in the way, but only sand, they dredged and dredged, creating more and more luxury waterfront property. Art Deco restaurants and hotels in the latest architectural style that was all the rage sprang up almost everywhere. These hotels are among the most fabulous in the world, and among the most historic in America.South Beach alone boasts original Art Deco hotels dating from the 1920′s. The buildings clustered together along the oceanfront, are painted in a wild, delightful mix of pastel colors of jewel pink and coral, sparkling sea turquoise, dewy fond green, and sunny yellow. Although many of them fell into neglect and disrepair during the bleak days of the Great Depression, they have been lovingly restored and are as inviting as ever.
They welcome today’s traveler with promises of fine living and exquisite service. Thanks to the innovation of the founding “pioneers”, they have withstood the test of time and the elements. Like the “billion dollar sandbar” on which they were built, they were made to last.
