“Good for admiring architecture, beach parks, watch out for cigars and monster bar drinks”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

Having lived near restaurant row in the theater district of Manhattan for many years, the town side of of Ocean Drive reminded me of the pre-theater crowds on the sidewalk at dinner time. The hosts are the typical soliciting types, the food and drinks all look the same. That said, Bongos at Larios was fine after a day of walking around for the experience. Service there was ok. Food was good.

Stay on the beach side of the street and admire the buildings -- pretty when lit at night. The crowd seems to be more of the 2 Coronas in a Margarita bowl type, but I once was young and in love with alcohol in mass quantities, so I can't judge. The Clevelander & Mangos looked like a spring break mecca. Lummus park is a nice place to chill under the palms, maybe rent a bike to ride on the beach path behind.

Welcome center in the area very nice.

“VISIT ONLY IF YOU EXPECT TO RUN INTO TONY MONTANA...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

The perfect tourist trap, ugly people, bad restaurants, noisy... there is nothing glamourous or interesting here, maybe the Versace Mansion but thats it...
