Lovely atmosphere! It is just like a party walking around and the architecture is so cute, just like going back in time.

It is amazing the ups and downs in the history of this area. It's worthy of some historical knowledge. Several buildings still being saved. Ocean drive is interesting for people watching but don't eat there, food horrid and service crazy slow. A block off great food and service at better prices. Good happy hour specials too. Lots to do!

Great to look around, hope to do an art deco welcome centre tour next time - the staff there were lovely. Great to walk round any way - beware the current roadworks on ocean drive southern end. Wouldn't drive down there at all at the moment....

great architecture and good energy. Restaurants on Ocean Drive need to chill out though and stop being so pushy... kind of ruined the leisurely experience.

I was impressed with so many different buildings from Art Decco period. Some of these hotels have the cars from the same period. Very interesting place to visit!

We had limited time in Miami and our walk around the Art deco district was an excellent experience and I would fully recommend if you have an interest in architecture. The walk along Ocean Drive opens the eyes to many sights of a structural an human nature!
