“Cruising on Ocean Drive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

You'd have to be crazy to drive down Ocean Drive. Gridlocked for blocks, you can walk faster, but that's not really the point. These cars are meant to be seen and seen they are. Ocean Drive has the best entertainment in South Beach - all for free!

“Interesting buildings”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2013

I enjoyed the art deco buildings on Ocean drive....but was disappointed in the lack of variety of restaurants. Worth a walk around...but much more food options on Lincoln.

very expensive, what out for the price of drinks at restaurants, this is what really bumps up the bill.

“A must see”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

If you are in South Beach, you really should take a walk on famed Ocean Drive. The people watching is fun, the unique Art Deco style hotels are colorful, and you can recognize the scenes from many movies and TV shows dating back to Miami Vice and Scarface.

There are many restaurants and bars along Ocean Drive. Some are great and some are just tourist traps. Check the Trip Advisor reviews before you get hooked by someone promising a "special" deal. Many times it comes with strings or you pay more for drinks, etc. which negates what ever special was promised.

Some places I like: News Cafe, Wet Willies, Caffe Milano, Pelican, Fish Called Avalon.
