“Stores and restaurants”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2014 NEW

Walk around and get ripped off nothing to do unless you are just partying and have a lot of money. Nothing for a family to do. A lot of people dress like they are hot but they are not.

“Fashionistas and lots of libations”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2014

You can spend an entire day here without spending a dime just by walking around, people watching, sitting on the beach or just strolling the streets admiring the architecture. Or, you can dine at super expensive restaurants paying $5+ for a bottle of flat water. Tons of things to do,free live entertainment at almost every restaurant on the beach. Rooms in most hotels are tiny, and the food in most restaurants is made for tourists.

“Architecture is great”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2014

It is great to view the buildings (and some of the cars) in the Art Deco district. We just wandered through, enjoyed the atmosphere. I would recomend walking down the beach side of the road, you get a better view of the buildings and are away from all the tourist shops and bars trying to get you to buy.

“Awesome architecture”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2014

For those who love history and architecture, it's really worth it. Nice old renewed hotels, with neons. Very lively neighbourhood, with happy hours at hotels and parties everywhere.
