Very touristy and expensive but fun and interesting. We only had a little time to explore a few blocks one evening but want to come back and enjoy the area again when we have a little more time to relax and explore things at a slower pace. We wanted to see too much in too short of a time. Give... More

I think the bars and restaurants are pretty good for young people who want to mingle and party in a loud atmosphere. My complaint is, as you walk down Ocean Dr, every restaurant has the exact same menu with big colorful pictures of the food and giant flashy drinks. I absolutely understand that this is the way to make money... More

The beach is really nice for family and kids. Personally I like waves but the water temperature is so good and relaxing that I really enjoyed the time I spent here. Restaurants at Ocean Drive should be avoided *at all costs*. I had friends with me that insisted to go even tough I cautioned it would be a bad experience.... More

This is a very trendy area with some good restaurants all competing for business and it is a high energy atmosphere. At night it's hopping and it goes on all night into the morning. Don't expect to park easily on the Drive but there are parking garages in certain areas on the Drive which is the better choice. You must... More

Strolling Ocean drive and sit down for something to eat and a drink, is a must when you go to Miami. But beware, it is expensive. And do not order todays special without asking for the prize! But to sit there watching all people and the cars passing by is a great vacation experience.

An amazing place. Will be going back soon. It's the best of both worlds. If you want a beach holiday or if want a sight seeing trip it's all there at South Beach

Great art deco houses & hotels with bars & restaurants. In the evening the houses are beautifully lit. There's music in almost every bar & even a open air disco. Great for a strall & dinner (or lunch), although can be a bit pricey.

I highly recommend taking the time to walk down Ocean Drive. During the day there is the beautiful beach view as well as lots of hustle and bustle. Nighttime brings a fleury of activity .... There are many restaurants to sit at and have a meal or just to sit and have a drink with friends. There is music and... More

Beautiful walk between 5th and 10th around 9pm after finding a meter to park for a few hours. After strolling to the beach to get our feet wet just before dark we headed up Ocean on foot as the glow of the art deco hotels lit up the crowded street. NICE!
