Española Way Holidays

This cruisy thoroughfare, which was built on a model Mediterranean village, has a history that includes mafia-related dilapidation and a cultural rebirth. 

Explore Española Way, a one-block avenue in the heart of South Beach. This connection between Collins Avenue and Pennsylvania Avenue is a popular pedestrian area. Built in 1925, it was designed to resemble a Mediterranean village. Delight in its well preserved dwellings which have earned it the name, "The Historic Village." Visit at night to experience a vibrant nightlife along its cobblestone streets, illuminated by old-era lights. 

Its Mediterranean ambiance was purpose-built to create a French and Spanish vibe for the wealthy residents of South Beach. Observe the careful recreation of common European features, including seashell-pink stucco buildings, art deco architecture and lush vegetation. In its early years, the district became populated by shady dealers and Mafioso, including Al Capone who gambled at the area's Clay Hotel. Criminal activity brought degradation to this district until the 1980s, when it flourished with cultural rebirth. Regeneration of the area was spurred by its featuring in the popular TV series, Miami Vice.

Pick from a wide range of cuisines along Española Way, including Spanish tapas and Italian classics. Buy a souvenir at a family run shop selling handmade jewellery, beachwear and other gifts. Feel the energy of the area's art scene at a range of indoor and open-air galleries.

Though peaceful and pleasantly languid during the day, Española Way springs to life at night. Indulge in a drink at one of many bars, attend a dance class or watch a live music performance along the street. 

At just one block in length, Española Way can be traversed on foot in less than 5 minutes. If the foot traffic of the area becomes overwhelming, turn off to Lincoln Avenue and enjoy this street's quietly funky atmosphere.  Nearby, find a shrine to the past alongside distinctly modern displays of art and sculpture.
