“Meh”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

Collins avenue is okay. Great for shopping if that is what you came for. It's not impressive, kind of dirty. No parking whatsoever!

“Some interesting art deco buildings”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013

Collins Ave. has some interesting art deco hotels, but I preferred walking on Ocean Drive just one street over because it was more pedestrian friendly and had even more examples of art deco architecture. However, there are more shops on Collins Ave. (including a Barney's) if you're looking to do some shopping.

“Take a stroll down Collins”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

Collins has lots of neat hotels and is great for taking a stroll along the waterfront. It's a little less hectic here than the heart of "South Beach." Take a stroll along the intracoastal side and check out all the boats along the way.
