We took the tour from 1001 Ocean Drive. The guide was knowledgeable but could be provided with better sound equipment to ensure all patrons can hear. There was some struggle at times with fluency as our guide delivered the information.

I had fond memories of the art deco district. what a let down. It has become so noisy and crowded that it's not even comfortable anymore. between the different music places rivaling to cut across the noise with their volume and the numerous tuned-up cars also pumping the volume, you can barely have a conversation. Traffic is terrible and the... More

This is a prime area for photographers, artists, and architecture nuts. It's also a great area to view the local human oddities. Various tours may be booked, or you can go yourself.

This is why you come to south beach. Walking on ocean drive, and seeing the people. If your not ready to chill for epic drinks, walk on the ocean side of the street to avoid the barkers. (people trying to get you to eat / drink there)

I saw a better display of morality in the French Quarter. I am not a prude, but there should be some decency laws in place for those who enjoy dressing offensively.

Really fascinating to understand the architectural differences and the importance of what... More

Once you understand the history you look at the properties in a different way - Art Deco is fascinating
