A lot of Miami Beach locales used in this episode and The Victor on Ocean Dr extensively for the first time since Season 2. :D

Interesting.  It definitely "feels" like Washington Avenue to me.  That's where MV filmed most of these types of brief street scenes.  Most importantly, that area is where they filmed so much else of this episode.

 

Gina later walks by Farmacia Havana.  I found this:

It has the same slogan as the store behind Gina: "Envios de Medicinas a Cuba"  There is no address given, but they claim it was in Little Havana (without any evidence).

The Victor Hotel seen from a 2014 trip of mine to Miami - was seen extensively throughout this episode and was the last time seen in Miami Vice . The Victor was used in Season 1 and a number of times in Season 2 ( "Hit List", "Junk Love"  "Phil the Shill", "Little Miss Dangerous" ):D:D

In "Heroes of the Revolution", the sign only said "Miami International Airport", not "Welcome To".  Yes, this was on NW 21st St heading west into the airport, just west of 953/NW 42nd Ave.  The sign and support have been replaced with a new one in the same spot.

Thankyou Jim I will recheck just trying to pinpoint the exact location so I can visit 

It's right by the Wyndham seen in "Irish Eyes" at 3900 NW21st and

NW 21st is also seen in "Rock and a Hard Place" from Season 4

The one above looks a perfect match with the dip in the road ahead and the buildings to the right of the picture - the sign further down looks too far down

airtommy - what do you think?!:done:

Yes, that's exactly it.  They completely replaced both the sign and the support since 1986, but it's in the same spot as before.

Loved the locations in this one - primarily Miami Beach for the series finale in Spring 1987.

4950 Pine Tree Drive and The Victor Hotel on Ocean Drive (the last time Miami Vice would shoot here also seen in a number of Season 1 and 2 episodes) were standouts. :hippie::happy::xmas::thumbsup:
