Stiltsville is not only beautiful, it’s is also filled with history. The colorful houses were built in the 1930s, times of the prohibition. This area was “the place to see and be seen” while visiting Miami.
Accessible only by boat, rules were easy to be ignored. The many stories of illegal alcohol and gambling cost several raids.
By 1960, there were 27 of these structures, but weather and hurricanes took their toll and now only seven houses are still standing.
