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.

If you are in Miami and haven't been to the Art Deco District - go there, or you miss the essence of Miami Beach; go to the visitr center on Ocean Drive, visit the various hotel's lobbies, stroll down Lincoln Rd. Mall and Ocean Drive. Although take a walk on Washington Ave.

My opinion was a beautyful ocean drive but just for young or adults couples or family members, friends. Not for kids. It's a excesive luxury lifestyle.

Beautiful, just like all the pictures you ever saw. Go back at night to see them all lit. Best views from 2 storey bus.

Beautiful examples of art deco style architecture adorn the promenade of Ocean Drive and are definitely worth a visit. Most of the hotels have been restored to their former glory and look amazing both at day and at night!

This isone big Restaurant row, which makes this area a Little disappointing. The house are beautiful,but every house is a Restaurant and You are not able to watch These house without beeing slightly forced to eat or drink. A busy spot, not for arciteture Lovers or for chilling

One of the reasons that we travelled to Miami was to see the art deco district and enjoy the history. It was great to see that so many of the historical buildings are being refurbished back to their original beauty.
