“Classy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013

Collins Ave goes from Bal Harbour down to Miami Beach and one can find just about any kind of shopping experience, to say nothing of being on the beach. Parking in a problem and you will get a ticket if you don't pay the proper fees.

“Be prepared”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013

There are many great deals on the strip for those who want to have a reasonable lunch. My son had the fish sandwhich which was megasized . However, do not walk down the strip unless you want to meet numerous sales people trying to lasso you into sitting down at their dining establishments. Quite annoying and crowded.

“Ohh yeah!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

What's not to like about this place? Endless shopping opportunities, a great selection from cheap to affordable to high-end couture. Plenty of places to grab a bite to eat or have a drink (you need them in this hot climate). And girls: you can safely bring your boyfriend who hates shopping - there are lots of things that will be to his liking too.

“Collins Drive is THE place to be in South beach.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

Ocean drive has great older and small hotels but Collins has all the great restaurants and skyscraper 5 star hotels. Aroma coffee bar, Lincoln Mall Road lts of public beach entrances. Find a cheap hotel on Collins and stay there as a base.

“party people!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

Some Bars are open all night long~so you can party till the break of dawn! Very lenient open container policy~feel free hopping from bar to bar with a drink in your hand. 18% gratuity is included on everything so expect to pay $15 a cocktail. During the day the party slows down...but it never stops. While I was grabbing breakfast on one of the beautiful restaurants looking out to the beach, people were already getting their drinks on at the bars.
