What is a "donk" you ask? Urban dictionary puts it best, "Any POS late 80's or early 90's American heap (preferably an Impala) that has large enough wheels installed until it resembles (and rides and handles like) a Conestoga wagon." This is what you'll find driving up and down Ocean Drive in a hydraulic infused parade. You might also run across an actual baller who decided to park a stupid expensive vehicle on the side of the road, which attracts a lot of people trying to use their ipod as a camera to capture the rare sight of some car you won't ever ever own, let alone ride in.

In summation - it's the place to be with shops and bars, but a lot of "peackocking" from the rich and the wannabees. Enjoy the show.

Nice board walk by the beach with plenty of restaurants offering competitive priced food and drinks. A must visit on your miami trip but beware of traffic to get here and parking is expensive and hard to find.

No-one can visit Miami without taking in Ocean Drive be it day or night. A place to tick off the must see list. If you are a people watcher than this is ideal. However for many it'll be a case of seen it, done it and move on. If you want to eat then plenty happening here along the hotel side of the sidewalk. If you want a nice evening stroll without being hassled then walk on the ocean side.

Love it, so much to see and do, great beach, lots of places to eat and drink, so much entertainment. There are queiter hotels and places to eat in addition to the more lively areas of Ocean Drive.

You can spend a great time going for a walk there. You enjoy the Art Deco buildings, including Casa Casuarina (Versace's home) and some beautiful hotel buildings. I recommend walking on the beach side to have a better view of hotels and avoid hostesses. You may see a lot of eccentric people and luxury cars. Not to miss during your stay in Miami.
