This is why people come to South Beach. This street faces the beach and is packed with restaurants, many of which have DJs and music spinning. It's a great place to party during the day.

It is a very nice place to become acquainted with the essence of Miami lifestyle. Nice architecture on one side and the beautiful ocean on the other side.

If you want to experience Soutb Beach, this is the place to be. Take your time to walk around to see the various shops, the South Beach clock, the beach and the lifeguard towers. We grabbed a drink at one of the bars and sat outside, watching the people passing by. There will also pass many exotic and expensive cars... More

Can't even walk on crowded sidewalks. People watching was something to be experienced. Men in general were discussing and objectifying every woman who walked by. Quite the gross childish scene.

One of the main reasons to visit Miami is to experience this area, with al the flavor of a well stablished touristic zone with a tropical meets latin meets glamour meets american vacations. Even though the restaurants are a little pricy the experience worth it. This is the kind of place you can not overview visiting Miami.

Very, very busy street at all times of the day and night. Lot's of restaurants and hotels. The restaurants all try to persuade you to eat and drink there but watch for rip offs! At night, it is crazy with thousands of people walking the street and cars playing music at competitive levels on the ear!! Lots of fun, just... More
