This is a MUST see for anyone traveling to Miami Beach. It is hard to get to if you aren't within walking distance, just because of the crowds and traffic. We stayed too far up the beach to make it easily walkable for us. I...More

Pretty crowded and noisy, but hey, what do u expect from Ocean drive on holidays. Lots of restaurants and bars, kind of pricey though and sometimes hard to find a table for a big company.

Walk along the beach side to avoid the crowded narrow slab of a pavement full of tables packed with drinkers. This way you can see the ocean as well as some the beautiful Art Deco buildings on the other side.

Miami beach, popular and very touristy. Parking along Ocean Drive gives you quick access to the beach, paying by cash or card. From here, food and drinks are easily available. But do watch the prices of what you eat. There are some cheaper eateries available...More

A great place to visit and admire the architecture. It is always busy day and night. The cocktails look very inviting and are very expensive! It is nice to sit and watch the people and grand cars going by!

Yes. Wheelchair friendly. However suggest you use the beach-side side walk as the restaurant side gets very crowded in the evenings. This side also gives the best views of the wonderful Art Deco buildings. Good luck and... More

Yes agree with the above. Lincoln is a partly pedestrianised area where you can shop and eat! Ocean drive is fab for the art deco buildings along it. Worth a breakfast in one of the cafes and doing some people watching!
