“Miss Florida”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

I used to live n orlando for 3 years and drive down 2 miami every other weekend to go to south beach i love it there everybody looks good too.. I had never seen a parrot just flying around there like they were amazing sights and things to do had a blast. You see so many celebs just hanging around too.

“If you don't do anything else in Miami...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

...do the Ocean Drive walk. I only went during the nighttime so I can't comment on any other time, but it was awesome. To truly enjoy this attraction you literally have to walk - you won't want to drive because the traffic is AWFUL. The walk is enjoyable because you get to see what others are doing, wearing, drinking and eating. We did not stop at a traditional restaurant to eat we went to a random spot and had drinks. The place also had a live DJ and a dance floor. Some places had outdoor dining - which personally would annoy me if I were trying to eat and people just kept walking through the restaurant and by my food. There are also a few shops on Ocean Drive that sell clothing. I'm glad we did the walk and when we go back we'll do it again :)

“Lots it's glamour”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013

I used to love walking along Ocean Drive at night, watching all the fun people having and soaking up the buzz and beautiful people . Now it feels so commercial, every restaurant bugging you to stop, shoving menus at you, looking at displays of day old food plated under plastic wrap. The street attracts a very different crowd now. Due to the tightness of walking space you really feel claustrophobic and need to be very aware of your personal belongings. Please Miami clean up this street and restore it back to how it used to be

“Being on a Movie set”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013 via mobile

Whatever you could imagine, you'll experience it doubled!
Convertible cars with loud raeggetton music, fancy bikes, everybody jogging in bermuda, music from the bars, bicicles and mostly the beach!
It is a must!

You will not tell movies from reality from movies from reality from...

“Buzzing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

Whilst in Miami doing "The Walk" along Ocean Drive is a must! A fabulous people watching experience with famous restaurants and bars bursting with atmosphere and vibes! You are spoilt for choice! Not to mention the display of fantastic sports cars cruising past. Good fun!
