Miami Icons: Vote Now For Your Favorite Miami Landmark!

Marc Averette/Wikimedia Commons
All month long, Cultist's Miami Icons series has spotlighted Miami's most deserving landmarks. There are the obvious choices, like Ocean Drive's Colony Hotel. There are the historical gems, like Vizcaya. There were modern additions, like the Arsht Center. We even threw in a couple weirdo picks -- El Faraon, for example -- just to keep things interesting.

Now, it's time for you to choose. Which Miami Icon deserves to represent the Magic City to the rest of the world?

Take our poll and make your voice heard. Should it be the opulence of the Versace mansion? The picturesque MacArthur Causeway? The fantastical Opa-locka City Hall?

If you're still not sure, read back through the Miami Icons series to narrow down your pick:

The Colony Hotel, Ocean Drive's Most Famous Art Deco Building
The Freedom Tower Welcomed Cubans to America
The Miami Tower, Colorful Chameleon of the Skyline
Vizcaya, Birthplace of Magic City Luxury
Stiltsville, Offshore Escape For Miami's Most Colorful Characters
American Airlines Arena, Home of the White Hot Heat
The Bacardi Complex (AKA YoungArts), Striking Beauty of Biscayne
The Biltmore, a Glitzy, Golden-Age Throwback
The Adrienne Arsht Center, Where Glossy Style Meets Cultural Substance
The Welcome To Miami Beach Sign, a Nostalgic Causeway Beacon
The Versace Mansion, a High-End Hotel Inspiring Macabre Fascination
The MacArthur Causeway Bridge Pairs Striking Skyline Views and Strange History
El Faraon, Where Fidel Castro Once Visited (Maybe)
Espirito Santo Plaza, Brickell's Algebraic Skyscraper
Opa-locka City Hall, an Arabesque Dream in the Face of Urban Decay

You have until Friday to decide. We'll announce the winning Miami Icon on Monday. Choose wisely!

Atlantis on Brickell it's the one with the set of red stairs in it.


The Dade County Courthouse or One Biscayne Tower. Or that space ship-shaped Publix on South Beach, near that towing company. :)

Or the Miami Herald building.
