“It's an Avenue”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

It's like any other Avenue. It's a block off the beach but you can't see it. A lot of traffic. Fun to watch all the people walking around from the various hotels/condos.

“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.

“Perfect Place”

Collins Avenue is the perfect place to stay in South Beach plenty of old art deco hotels to choose from. There is plenty of shopping, lots of restaurants and easy to get around. The variety of activities keeps Collins Avenue a fun place to be, very entertaining.
