Too touristy for me..... more for the college crowd. Only exception in the Villa by Barton G. II Sole is amazing and a good lunch spot.

I'm from NYC and they hustle basically for a reason without harassing. I was harassed here every single time I passed a restaurant and when I did enter the waiter was making me buy a bottle of champagne with my pregnant wife at 11am..definitely not that great especially being from a big city. Unless your from a small town then... More

A trip through old South beach, with art deco boutique hotels, outdoor cafes, and a slice of the "Good Life". Great area for people watching and seeint a little of the " Rich and Famous" !!

This is what you see on tv! See it in person. Day or night lots of fun. Best for families during the day. Lots of food but not great. Better to walk there and eat somewhere else. Sit and people watch. Playgrounds across the street.

Like art deco architecture? Check. Like trendy bars and restaurants? Check. If you also like people watching, whilst being entertained by the heavy disco beats from various DJs, all within 50 yards of the famous beach - this is the place to be. To study the hotel exteriors, walk on the ocean side of Ocean Drive...

Great sites await you from side walk restaurants, great plant life, the stairway where a scene from scar face was shot. Come during Art Deco week and enjoy magnificent views and artwork. All on one incredible street near the beach. And the shopping is spectacular.

I had always heard about the allure of South Beach, so decided on a 3-day weekend from Michigan cold and snow. I don't think I would return again based on this experience. One side of the street is packed with hotels and restaurants, the other with parks and walkways and beyond that the ocean. You can't really see the ocean... More

We walked on Ocean Drive several times. I felt the vibration. I understand why it is preferred by many celebrities. I understand why it was favorite filmmakers. It vibrates both day and night. Charming!

We walked an extended length of Ocean Drive to see what was going on early in the evening. The street side cafes and restaurants were busy and totally entertaining. It really is a place to see and be seen. Totally entertaining.
