“Faboulous place!!!”

Love it, so much to see and do, great beach, lots of places to eat and drink, so much entertainment. There are queiter hotels and places to eat in addition to the more lively areas of Ocean Drive.

“day and night!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013

You can spend a great time going for a walk there. You enjoy the Art Deco buildings, including Casa Casuarina (Versace's home) and some beautiful hotel buildings. I recommend walking on the beach side to have a better view of hotels and avoid hostesses. You may see a lot of eccentric people and luxury cars. Not to miss during your stay in Miami.

“great for a walk”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013

Great for a walk but that's about it. The entire block has the "tourist trap" feel to it. The restaurants put food on tables for display. The hostesses are a bit sketchy as well. Enjoy the beach, the beautiful Art Deco buildings etc just stay away from most of the businesses and restaurants. (besides Front Porch Café and The News)

“Cool the first time, don't think I would come back.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013

If you come to Miami, you have to check out Ocean Drive. ONCE. Cool buildings, the beach, sidewalk cafes and incredible people watching.

However you are harassed by all the sidewalk cafe staff to eat at their establishment, the beach itself is kinda dirty (trash) and I would not go at night and it was expensive on ocean drive to eat or drink.

Obviously a party location. I would get tired of this scene if I stayed more than an day.
