A real feel of the mafia lords era... a real feel of being on Miami vice or seeing Scarface in front of you... A real must for all...

The Art Deco District was fascinating. I was surprised to hear that over 15 years ago the government was going to demolish the area. It was saved by a local woman who created a preservation society. Very interesting.

The Art Deco Historic District is what South Beach is all about. There's a lot of old, unique, interesting architecture. I'm a photography enthusiast and I found ample opportunities for cool photos. I'm attaching my finest Ocean Drives pictures to this review. Check them out !!!

Lovely Art Deco Historic Distric! Full of life! Cool place! With expensive shops and historic buildings from the Twenties! Most of them built between 1923 and 1943! Nice restaurants and bars. Palm trees! For me, it was a very good surprise! Vibrant atmosphere! To visit again and again and again. Always!

This is the area to explore both during the day or night. The transformation of the this area from day and night makes it even more enchanting. Take a tour in order to soak in the history of this community.

Nice neighborhood to walk and check out the architecture. Didn't take an official tour, but enjoyed walking around and taking photos.

Be prepared to spend some serious cash on SoBe and in the Art Deco. Nothing is cheap, however they can get away with it. It is a fun place to hang out and meet travelers from all over the world. We were prepared for things to be overpriced so we managed to still have a lot of fun.

We set up our base here when visiting Miami. The architecture is well worth seeing but more so is the location when staying at Miami beach. Very central and easy to reach all the attractions. Only a $33 taxi ride from the airport.

Loved the buildings and the museum, traveled with our 13 yr old daughter, which i would not recommend. Ocean drive has some amazing restaurants and fabulous buildings, and theres a cosmopolitan buzz around the place. Fabulous for adults but the unsavoury tramps that loiter around the area are scary at night, we did not move from the strip as felt... More
