If you are a couple you have to go there at least once. Some very interesting people ...to be seen ,some of... More

Perfect place for a stroll - on the action-packed sidewalk in between the cocktails or on the other side of Ocean Boulevard, in the shady park with a great view of the Art Deco facades (a must-see at night!). We were lucky to experience the July 4 fireworks on the beach - good stuff in a very relaxed family-like atmosphere.

The whole athmosphere is quit nice. A lot of space to sit down and enjoy your meal or drinks. It's very nice to sit somewhere on the terrace and look at the nice, beautiful, one of a kind 😉, people walking by! I had a great time there! The combination with the old buildings makes it worth while.

Walk around and get ripped off nothing to do unless you are just partying and have a lot of money. Nothing for a family to do. A lot of people dress like they are hot but they are not.

You can spend an entire day here without spending a dime just by walking around, people watching, sitting on the beach or just strolling the streets admiring the architecture. Or, you can dine at super expensive restaurants paying $5+ for a bottle of flat water. Tons of things to do,free live entertainment at almost every restaurant on the beach. Rooms... More

It is great to view the buildings (and some of the cars) in the Art Deco district. We just wandered through, enjoyed the atmosphere. I would recomend walking down the beach side of the road, you get a better view of the buildings and are away from all the tourist shops and bars trying to get you to buy.
