Walking Tour Brochure

There are many “beach memories” here—the days when the Barefoot Mailman used to walk the beach to deliver mail in sparsely settled old Dade County and stopped for the night at the House of Refuge; the days when the shops on Atlantic Avenue shut down at the call, “the blue fish are running”; and the night in the 1930s when a smuggler’s cache of rum washed up on the beach just before the end of prohibition.
