This is a really fun drive down the coastline to Miami from points north such as North Miami and Fort Lauderdale. Beautiful buildings and boats to die for. Your trip to Miami is not complete unless you drive along this route.

You have to either drive, cycle or walk (it's quite long in the heat) down Ocean Drive to enjoy the atmosphere. There are restaurants, hotels, bars, live music and lots of great places to people watch.

I'd always heard about watching the people on south beach, and this is the place to do it. We were probably some of those being watched as we sat and drank our 64 ounce mojitas while sort of smoking our first chocolate flavored Cuban cigars sold to us on the spot.

Ocean Drive is the place to be whether you want to party, people watch or drink. Mangos and the Clevelander always seem to have a party going on.

It's fun to drive along Ocean Drive - the beautiful ocean, palm trees, sand, and people! It is a pleasure to drive and not to be missed if you are in the area.

Saw a drag show right in the middle of the street! So much fun music brought me back to my teen years full of so much energy! Cool cars too

A perfect place for partying, enjoying the beach or simply people-watching - this is a 24/7 carniva that never stops. From hip-hop to Salsa to retro, you hear all kinds of music along the way as you watch the stylish and not-so-stylish crowd pass by. Restaurants serving everything from fine cuisine to basic fare exhort customers to give them a... More
