We stayed in a property on Ocean Drive, not only is it a great location, right next to the beach, it's also the heart of South Beach. You can spend ages just wandering around Ocean Drive, taking in everything and the Miami lifestyle. It is mainly host to restaurants and bars. The daytime sees people enjoying lunches and cocktails under... More

Walking along Ocean drive in South Beach seems to always bring up something interesting, different, unique and definitely strange, at least to me. The sights and sounds are very lively, especially when the sun goes down. The neon lights come on and the music gets very loud. All in all a very fun experience

Remember the girls on skates , the scenes you have seen on films? Nothing like that. Just a getto , with too much traffic and loud music from the bars. Did not even get off the car.

We like to visit here a couple times a year. You can walk the beach,walk Ocean Drive from 1st to 15th street and never get bored. There are many little boutiques, ton of bars/restaurant's, lining the Drive. Sit outside on the sidewalk eating or drinking and people watch. Get's very busy late night.

Ocean Drive is a street in South Beach Miami. Nice scenery with palms near the beach. In this street there are a lot of bars and restaurants and people drive this street to show off their cars. Nice to watch and experience.

As part of exploring Miami, going to Ocean Drive seemed like a must. We went towards the evening with the area buzzing with plenty of activity and lots of people. For an iconic place it seemed a tad over crowded with the usual repertoire of bars and restaurants and people just cruising down the road. Was ok but not spectacular,... More
