Many people confuse Miami with Miami Beach and South Beach. Miami and Miami Beach are actually 2 different municipality while South Beach is but a beach in Miami Beach. Miami has the world's largest cruise harbor, the Miami Harbor, able to accommodate the largest cruise ships and many people depart for their Caribbean cruise from Miami Harbor. An architectural revolution in the 1930s brought Art Deco, Streamline Moderne, and Nautical Moderne architecture to South Beach. In 1966, the Jackie Gleason Show, a popular weekly variety series, was taped in South Beach, bringing more fame to the area. And recently the famous TV show, Miami Vice, brought international attention to the area. South beach is also a very popular place with fashion photographers frequently used the area for their photo shoots. The nightlife is very lively with many night clubs and restaurants. And the beach has also attracted nude sunbathing even though it is a public beach
