There are many monuments in Miami that are noted on the U.S. list of State Historic Landmarks, a fantastic tool for anyone that is searching for unique places to go to. The city of Miami is a great destination for anyone with a need to find out more about the history of the United States and Miami.

Liberty Tower

Perhaps the most famous of the Miami monuments is Freedom Tower. Commonly referred to as the Ellis Island of Miami, Freedom Tower is where many Cubans came to immigrate to the U. S.. The tower was given to Miami Dade College and is now used to often host art items. This landmark located in the center of Miami is pretty and a perfect spot for photos.

Miami Biltmore Hotel and Country Club

The Miami Biltmore Hotel is a luxury unlike all others. The spa services and the peerlessly maintained golfing course are enough luxury for many guests. Add unique dining experiences (like Palme d’Or ranked best overall experience by Zagat), the Biltmore Culinary Academy where celebrity chefs give personal lessons to guests all combine to give an elegant and refined experience for any traveler.

Ferdinand Magellan-United States Car No. 1

One of the Miami monuments that is found at the Gold Coast Railroad Museum is the position of choice to view the Ferdinand Magellan, the first Presidential Rail Vehicle. While the interior of the train is now not available for public viewing the long history of this automobile makes it a vital part of American History. This automobile was one of the last personal train cars that were ever built and it is the only passenger automobile on the list of National Historic Landmarks. The Gold Coast Railroad Museum is a cheap and engaging place to quickly learn a lot about American History. Any person with an abiding interest in trains will have a very good time having a hands-on experience with the retired train cars and an opportunity to ride some of the trains which have been revived for the public.

The Miami Circle at Brickell Point Site

This landmark is an archaeological location of the Tequesta Indians from 2000 years ago. This perfect circle cut into the rock is a site to behold. Miami Circle at Brickell Point Site is quiet and completely open, providing a unique waterfront and an ideal place for a chilled afternoon inside of the busy city. This is the latest monument in Miami to be added to the National Register of Historic Places. Tours of the funeral sites at Miami Circle at Brickell Point Siteare offered by the Historic Museum of Southern Florida.

Vizcay Museum And Gardens

Monuments in Miami like the Vizcay Museum and Gardens give the culture of Miami it?s unique flavor. This museum belongs to Miami-Dade county and the stunning architecture and plants make it an extraordinary location for beginner and experienced photographers alike. The gardens are full of stunning rare and exotic plants that are maintained marvellously. The open-air house has been the home of one or two influential USA citizens over the years and renovated several times with opulent accouterments each time.
