MIAMI by the- ea

F LORIDA has added five years to my life. Not infrequently I am asked what contribu'
tions Florida has made to me. Pleasure, rest and recreation are real but not necessarily
t,' assets, but in addition to these things, I feel that Florida has -; . 'i me at least
five years of additional life. Perhaps I can stretch it out to six or seven years, but of five
years I am reasonably certain. I am not overfond of pneumonia so common in the north
Florida is a great state for the old folks when they haven't the vitality they once had
This has been discovered by a great many people, and to me it .iit. 'r . assurance that 1 I. -.
ida never will be f' . t.'in TI,.... are a great many more men and women living up
north who have only to get in the sunshine for one winter to become real enthusiasts for
the state, as well as annual visitors."- Thozmas A. Edison.

In "The same factors which
make Miami the perfect win-
ter resort also make it the
k ideal place for a permanent
home. It is well known that
I many residents came here as
visitors, and were so im-
pressed with what they found
that they decided to remain."

President, Red Book NMagJ.

MIAMI by thooea

"Miami is today a majestic city. It
has been built by the spirit of con-
quest in its citizens. It had location
and climate to build on, but what
really built it were the odds against
its men and women, who, in over-
coining obstacles did that whii, h L i
builders have done time �Out Ot
mind, faced a challenge, nm i it in
a spirit of conquest, and ' .ii "--

Miami-A Modern Eden
ONLY one night out by train from the population cen-
ters of the United States i11 bring you into Miami,
out of the grip of northern snow and ice into the fairy-
land which drew Ponce de Leon on his quest of the Fountain
of Youth. The trip from New York is rtir- two hours, or
thirty-six hours from C' 1 .., .
But with the magical changes the years have , ,,, one
factor has remained just as it was on that memorable day when
the adventuresome Spaniard dropped anchor in an azure sea
and hailed the new palm-strewn land which has since proved
itself a marvelous place for extending the life span. The sun
shone -I illi Iti that day as it does each day in these modern
times. And, though science had not then made so much prog-
ress, the old Spaniards knew that sun meant health and ' i-., ,.
rejuvenated tissues and a longer life. This fact, of course, is
considerably more stressed today.
Today, of course, a metropolitan city has risen over coral
slopes and sun-kissed beaches. In modern Miami is to be
found a veritable tropical -.1 iri of Eden.

Miami Accessible
Accessibility, perhaps more than any individual factor,
has figured in Miami's rapid growth. Though distinctly dif-
ferent from every other American city, it is close enough
to the congested metropolitan cities to be considered adjacent.
It is far removed only in the sense that it is far from the
commonplace order of American municipalities. Its tropical
dress, the scent of orange blossoms, its barbaric colors, .
the romantic lands of the far East rather than modern
America. So accessibility has drawn great hordes to Miami
by train, boat, motor car and airplane.

The Highway of Palms
S TRAIGHT down the sun-bathed East Coast of
the Highway of Palms takes one through the rich ( i -,
belt and its groves of golden fruit: along the historic
Indian River, bordered by t ,'1 palms, bending under the
weight of great clusters of coconuts, and over a velvet-smooth
surface with the gently heaving bosom of the Atlantic ocean
ever in view.
Heading southward from J,. I.... i1 you feel the com-
I-. "' - ".. . . of the tropics, the romance of St. A ,_ ,.ii .
America's oldest settlement, slumbering under great, spread-
ing live-oaks and cypress trees, as eternal as the city over
which they stand watch.
With every mile you may see the subtle changes in nature s
paintings. Southward you move into Daytona, home of the
sable palm and thence to Ormond, famous for the estate of
John D. Rockef. II. i
The Highway of Palms runs as a shiny, new ribbon of road
into Miami. The Federal Highway, another new hard-surface
road, is but a mile inland from the sea.

Fairyland's Promenade
Both will take you to the outer edge of Miami and into the
most magnificent thoroughfare in America- Biscayne Boule-
vard. Here is the promenade of fairyland-throbbing heart-
center of Miami in America's only tropics. This is a fitting cli-
max to the journey over the Highway of Palms, like the pot of
gold at the rainbow's end. For the first time you glimpse the
entire gamut of the palm family, the coconut palm, the royal
palm, the travelers' palm, the Washingtonian palm, the palmetto
palm, apron I.'1:'i and other varieties spreading in prodigious
quantity over the curbs and parkways of Biscayne Boulevard.

years it built up a stadwart

the imagination of America.
Miami today is a? modern as
science ot building and Amer
ican can make it. It is
a complete city, ready for the
industry which is finding it a
solution to many problems,

"llie importaii poiniit is that the
cost of living in Miami today is to
the man of average means, the one
who wants to go to a warm climate
in winter and not overspend him-
self doing it, exceedingly and as-
tonishingly attractive." - James
Hay, Jr., in the Asheville Citizen.

Vital factors of nature have

June Days in Winter
I. T is a tradition in Miami that June weather prevails in all
Lwelve months. One feels it is good to be alive and in
Miami where a gently tempered climate seems especially
designed to induce a tonic exhilaration during the winter
months, and where the ills and chills attendant on the season
are foreign factors.
This is primarily because Miami has the lowest maximum
temperature and the highest minimum temperature of any
city in the United States. It is completely without either ex-
treme of weather. The mean average of the city is 74.4 de-
grees (six winter months, 70.9 degrees; six summer months
79.3 degrees). There has never been a heat prostration in
4 In twenty-eight years, according to the official record of
the United States meteorological station, the thermometer has
reached 90 degrees on an average of but five times yearly. In
N t"' that same period fr.. :ii, temperatures were recorded but
seven times and then of less than two hours duration. Fog is a
.- C. _BB i l._. factor, averaging about three hours during the en-
tire twelve months of the year.

S- A Comparison With Famous Climes
A comparison of Miami's climate with that of the cele-
S- brated resort places of the world reveals the fact that Miami
.. -'-- is less subject to extremes than the Riviera, the Mediterranean,
.. - - or Pacific Coast cities. Those disconcerting changes from heat
. . 4 , to cold and back again are unknown in Miami where the
S .-,.o . . i.. .*, ~average range during the winter months is only 12.4 degrees
,. .o. - " :" , and less than that in the summer. The C..11.. ]i table of
comparison of the world's choicest climes is compiled from

Wonderful Hotel Capacity
i IAMI S wonderful variety of hotels is one of its
greatest assets. They vary in height up to seventeen
stories, and all the taller hotels overlook the Bay and
the Atlantic Ocean and thereby enjoy the cool breezes from
all directions.
It is conceded that Miami has more fine hotels than any
other winter resort city in America. There is a total of 136
hotels and more than 1,200 apartment houses ready for our
visitors from the North. Here one may find the very mod-
erate priced hotel or for those who wish de luxe accommoda-
tions there are great hotels with tropical gardens and every
facility for enjoyment. The hotel men's association has estab-
lished rates on a reasonable basis. These rates are guaranteed
by the City of Miami.
Thousands of Reasonable Apartments
The great variety of Apartment Houses in Miami and their
varied location on the bay, river or inland gives the visitor a
chance to express his own desire in selecting his apartment.
Apartment houses range from 1 to 15 room suites, and at as
wide a variety of prices as there are variety of locations and
sizes to choose from. 'rt i-.... II, ll the apartments available
are so completely furnished that about all the visitor has to
.i 1- .... as it has been so aptly put, is a toothbrush. The
visitor who comes single or the man who brings a large family
can step from the train to an apartment and begin house-
. ..'-':- where it was left ,.rf when train or boat was boarded
in the North.
Rates To Suit Everyone
The rates, it is to be emphasized, are extremely reasonable.

Unsurpassed Aviation Facilities
T'HE plane enthusiast of the population centers of the
north is only a few hours removed from Miami by the
-- ,nliit route down the Eastern Seaboard. Miami is
equipped with the most modern and extensive aviation facil-
ities, including three landing fields, the last of which is just
being "'11. .t...1 and a seaplane base, comparable in size to
the dockage space in New Yark.
Headquarters for the famous Curtiss Aviation School,
Miami has ample hangar space and repair facilities for every
type of plane. The Pan-American Airways, Inc., .1 " Ill -
between Miami and Panama, by way of Havana, is just com-
. 1 th.,, its airport at an expenditure of $65,000, while the
Hialeah Field and the Municipal Airport are both in general
use day and night.
The amateur il , will find irth ,.in opportunity for pleas,
ant :' r.r- to such accessible and interesting places as Bimini,
Nassau and Havana, all within three hours ii .),. from Miami.
When the Pan-American Airways field is completed aerial
passengers to Miami - l' alight at the finest air I..-- i"
station in the United States. Miami also has the first inter-
national air ticket station in the country. One of the special
features is that there are customs arrangements whereby pas-
sengers ., ii.; to or from Havana are not detained longer than
one minute and a half for inspection of 1i _. -
Miami is an easy city for the aerial tourists to reach be-
cause it is the southern terminus of the New York Atlanta-
Miami airmail route. There are landing fields at frequent and
convenient locations from New York to Miami. The route is
marked all the way down. For visitors coming from the west
there is the air route running from Chicago to Atlanta and
then to Miami.

Miami every season.
Here you find conditions
ideal for sailing or for thrilling

Add Golden Years in

There are records innumer-

actually been added to the lives
of people who have regularly
come to Miami's rejuvenatory
climate for the winter season.
There are cases innumerable
also of people who have left the
rigors and ills of the northern
winters to spend their last few
days under tropical southern
skies, who have been rejuve-
nated in a marvelous manner
and who now look forward to
many more years among their
loved ones, steeped in the tonic
of Miami's climatic caresses of
eternal youth. Science says that

Beautiful Marine Gardens
THROUGH the clear waters of the reefs a few miles
south of Miami are mirrored rare beauties of subsea life,
amazing forests of giant coral i . 1... of sea-fans and
plumes, the deep purples and vivid reds of their hues stand-
ing out in sharp contrast to the pure white sand with its
patches of green and blue ... t .- Through the branches of
these coral trees gracefully swim fish that defy description, in
color and shape, odd and colorful denizens of the watery
depths that are as diverting as flowers.
Famous marine painters, with W. K. Vanderbilt II and
William Beebe, noted scientist and sub-sca authority, have
made under-sea studies of the beautiful fish specimens which
are to be found here. In fact, many of the rarer specimens
have been taken to stock the private aquarium of Mr. Van
1 -rbiih which he has built on an island in Bay Biscayne.
A trip to these marvelous sea gardens is made from the
dock on Bay Biscayne in glass-bottomed boats that leave in
the afternoon and return in the ,' r from a . .- as
wonderful as a visit to King Neptune himself.

The Tired Business Man
Back in 1923, '24, '25 and '26 Miami was unable to furnish
needed facilities for the tourists and investors and the hordes
of speculators who trekked to this American Mecca of Sun-
shine and Play. Today there are ample and commodious
accommodations for the steadily growing population and for
the hundreds of thousands of tourists and visiting guests of
America's southernmost Southland. There is even room in
her towering skyscrapers for the temporary offices of those
men whose business permits them during unbearable days of

rade-this is the portrait of the
Miami Jockey Club which re-
sumes winter racing under
summer skies at its million-
dollar plant here this season.
One of the most beautiful
: _.-i, plants in America, the
Jockey Club is the focal point
for mid-winter society and the
haunt of the lover of the sport
of Kings. Here in mid-winter
you will find the best racing
blood of American stables, a
favorite meeting for owners
and trainers whose horses are
kept in perfect condition for
the spring and summer meet-
ings in northern tracks.
After an idle season the
Jockey Club re-opens January
17 for a meeting of 51 days of
racing. Seven times daily the
horses will go to the post.

made at this famous track, the

mid-winter r ni:h1 is an actu-

horses are quartered at this
plant, although the club has
ample space for more than a
thousand horses.

broad terraces, is an ensemble
of beautiful 1 ,r..l-..- ipin:. where
native vegetation, palm trees
and tropical flowers i .: it a
distinctive touch, unlike the
other famous horse tracks of
America. The city maintains an
efficient bus service from Miami
to the Jockey Club.
Archery Golf
Like golf, archery is one of
the famous mid-winter sports
of Miami and archery-golf is
the game whose star is just now
in the ascendancy. The most fa-
mous course constructed for
this ancient pastime in the
Miami district is located on
property developed by Glenn
H. Curtiss, pioneer airplane
builder and a staunch patron
and devotee of archery-golf.
It was over this famous course
a year ,1, that Howard Hill

one hundred yards further than
the old record. This was a fea-
ture of last year's archery-golf
tournament, one of the sport-
ing classics of Miami. Hill, the
club professional, who is partly
Cherokee Indian, set a mark of
over 391 yards. The old mark
was 296 yards, set by P. M.
Croch, of Newton Center, Mass.
The second annual tourna-
ment set for February ill be
held during the peak of the
midwinter season. Many stars
of America will appear in com-
petition including braves of the
Seminole tribe who have served
their apprenticeship under an-
cestors who stalked :1 .n.Ji.

when nature alone provided
their means of existence.
A Golfer's Paradise
Golf, perhaps, deserves a
place of paramount importance
at Miami. Golf can be indulged
in 365 days each year. There
are 11 courses in Metropolitan
Miami as inviting and ideal as
any to be found in America.
But there is a peculiar "liri
about golf and golfers who

"Miami has every advantage en-
joyed by other sections of the coun-
try, and none of their disadvan-
tages. Its winter climate is unsur-
passed."-A. M. Keller, St. Louis
banker, and member Paul Brown &





play Miami's courses. The busi-
ness man comes to Miami and
finds that there is an abundance
of facilities. It is a chance to
improve his game. Hardly
conscious of the very factor
which works the change, he
finds the improvement quick
and easy. He drives better; he
develops better form and he
putts with greater accuracy.
The fundamental reason for
the improvement is that old
man Sun is behind it all. It's
the general pick-up in health,
prompted by the sun's actinic
rays which are only found in
like intensity in Miami and on
the highest peaks.
For those who would witness
the stars of the : ,,.' in action,
Miami presents a colorful gal-
axy in every outstanding tour-
nament throughout the winter.
Miami is the popular winter
stamping ground for the
country's leading golfers. Any
winter season finds such stars
as Hagen, Sarazen, i ii..l Es-
pinosa, Cruickshank, Mac
Smith, Tommy Armour and a
host of others as well known
leading a .-;1ll r, around any
one of the 11 courses.

designer, broke his own world's
record with his Miss America
V. Every year sees such exhib-
itors racing as Carl G. Fisher,
of Miami Beach and Indiana-
polis: Mrs. W. J. Connors, of

many others as well known.

The regatta is staged every
year at the height of the mid-
winter season. There are class
races for boats of every size
and description from the out-
board motor, hopping in and
out of the water, to the 1 i
power craft of the Miss Amer-
ica type which i . - 80
miles an hour.

"To the individual seeking quietude
of mind Miami is almost divine."
