Vintage Florida: 1989-1996

Here's a collection of photos from various places in Florida: Including Miami/Miami Beach; Tampa-St. Pete; Ft Myers; Orlando along with places on the Panhandle such as Crestview, Defuniak Springs and Pensacola. This is an era when Miami's Brickell District was just experiencing large-scale development, but way before the epic condo boom of the 2000's. Miami Beach was trendy but still had lots of retirees, and St Petersburg really hadn't become trendy yet. I remember being very impressed with Mizner Park in Boca Raton. It was a redevelopment of an old strip center into a major mixed-use "new urbanist" style development. Hope you enjoy!

Always loved the look of this hotel but it was a bit too much for our family at the time.

Very nice collection of pics. It's interesting to see the Miami skyline with almost no skyscrapers in Brickell south of downtown.
