“A llittle bit of everything”
Reviewed March 9, 2013

From Ritz-Carlson hotel to small mom and pap places to well-stocked convenient stores, Collins Ave has a bit of everything. It is easy to navigate as the cross streets are numbered. Collins can get quite busy in the evening as the nightlife kicks in. Homeless take over in the morning and can be seen sleeping and walking everywhere.

“OMG, soooo bad....”
Reviewed March 6, 2013 via mobile

Never, ever....save money for other places to see or shop or have good time...this one here is a total failure - unexpected after the whole fuss I've heard all of these years. So long Collins, Ocean dr & Co.

“Nice place to take a drive to”
Reviewed March 5, 2013

Collins is a great Avenue to visit on a Sunday. Start in South beach for Lunch and some time on the beach. Than drive south and stop for dinner in Sunny Isles in one of the many great places

“Very busy”
Reviewed March 1, 2013

Lots of activity (and traffic) especially after work and in the evening. Depending on what part of the street you're on, there are some options for restaurants.

“Why care?”
Reviewed February 28, 2013

From all my many visits in the US, both for pleasure and business the staff in Bars and Restaurants are nowhere that unfriendly as in this Avenue. People come anyway.... A pitty and so non-American.
