“quite road”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

collins road is very different from the noisy washington avenue 'cos it's much more quite and full of clubs a bit more posh. this has been my personal feeling.

“Classy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013

Collins Ave goes from Bal Harbour down to Miami Beach and one can find just about any kind of shopping experience, to say nothing of being on the beach. Parking in a problem and you will get a ticket if you don't pay the proper fees.

“Be prepared”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013

There are many great deals on the strip for those who want to have a reasonable lunch. My son had the fish sandwhich which was megasized . However, do not walk down the strip unless you want to meet numerous sales people trying to lasso you into sitting down at their dining establishments. Quite annoying and crowded.

“Ohh yeah!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

What's not to like about this place? Endless shopping opportunities, a great selection from cheap to affordable to high-end couture. Plenty of places to grab a bite to eat or have a drink (you need them in this hot climate). And girls: you can safely bring your boyfriend who hates shopping - there are lots of things that will be to his liking too.

“Collins Drive is THE place to be in South beach.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

Ocean drive has great older and small hotels but Collins has all the great restaurants and skyscraper 5 star hotels. Aroma coffee bar, Lincoln Mall Road lts of public beach entrances. Find a cheap hotel on Collins and stay there as a base.
