On days: have your breakfast in one of many restaurants/bars on the sidewalk of Ocean Drive, rent a bike to ride along the Lummus park, and go the beach! At night: just enjoy the Art Deco style of the buildings, everything illuminated by neon. Grab a drink and enjoy the view!

There's always high energy along Ocean Drive in Miami. Lounge on the beach, swim in the ocean, or stop into eat and drink in any of the many bars and restaurants...morning, noon, or night!

Ocean Drive, the place to be in Miami South Beach! This is wheren people are to be seen, amazing and expensive cars. Great to have a drink, dinner, lunch or even breakfast at and just watch everything and everyone pass. Close to the beach too.

Love the great people watching, fun drinks and food and never a dull moment. The energy here is incredible. I enjoy looking at the different types of cars cruising Ocean drive. The food and drinks are overpriced but you pay for being right there in the action. Despite hearing that the restaurants are tourist traps, the food was actually good... More

So Ocean Drive has its own very special reputation. By mid afternoon the sidewalks are heaving, the road is stacked with cruising traffic, music pumping from all directions. It's a must to walk down, look in the fabulous restaurants and bars, spot a few classic cars and some flamboyant drag queens. This all happens between 5th and 15th streets on... More

Another must see location as this is part of SOBE but food is as expensive as it can be, food quality is at best average and service is a trap... You must walk from 14th st to 5th but don's pollute your stomach...as pricey as the top restaurants at Fontainbleau with low quality and hidden fees...

This was my first time. I'm 25 and I'm all about finding a great deal and not spending a great amount. I decided to stay on Monday through Friday. Hotel(Starlight Hotel) + Flight(out of Hartford, CT) was $374 total which sounds like a deal to me! I recommend Expedia and staying on weekdays for a good price. Ocean Drive is... More
