“Pretty cool”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

Nice board walk by the beach with plenty of restaurants offering competitive priced food and drinks. A must visit on your miami trip but beware of traffic to get here and parking is expensive and hard to find.

“A typical review no doubt”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2013

No-one can visit Miami without taking in Ocean Drive be it day or night. A place to tick off the must see list. If you are a people watcher than this is ideal. However for many it'll be a case of seen it, done it and move on. If you want to eat then plenty happening here along the hotel side of the sidewalk. If you want a nice evening stroll without being hassled then walk on the ocean side.

“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)
