Most picturesque stroll on South Beach. Enjoy park and ocean views, Art Deco Architecture, fascinating entertainment venues, pulsating music, sidewalk tables with huge umbrellas, attractive hostesses competing for customers, samples of food and huge beverages displays, local street characters and happy faces throughout. Highly recommend the 10 block stretch between 5th and 15th Streets. Guaranteed to entertain. Unforgettable experience!

Ocean Drive is the Bourbon Street of Miami Beach. Amazing collection of Art Deco hotels line Ocean Drive and you have your pick of amazing restaurants and bars to choose from.

. Best to go to the beaches further from this stretch of circus. The only thing I liked doing was getting a frozen drink at wet sillies while hungover. The rest of the shops and restarts it's were an over crowded rip off.

This area used to be an attractive and interesting location to visit years ago. However, it has turned seedy and it's unbearable to drive through it. Actually, it's pretty disgusting and embarrassing! We feel sorry for the restaurant owners who must protect their properties and control the trashy masses. Can't understand how authorities have allowed the means that bring these... More

The art deco hotels are both beautiful and historic. You feel like you are transported back to the l950's. This is a great people watching spot. Sit at a café with a mojito or café cubano and enjoy the view and the ocean breeze

There are a lot of places to eat and drink but watch out for the higher prices and service charges for everything.

Ocean drive is the most happening spot in Miami. All the hotels, restaurants and clubs are here. People who want to enjoy the nightlife of Miami should stay here or come by. There's literally music and dancefloors everywhere. It's also right across from the ocean so you get amazing views and breezes. A must see!

Think of it as bourbon street a tad bit toned down, they do not allow you to walk around with your drinks anymore, but there are lots of spots to sit and drink, great restaurants as well as the Versace mansion

Lots of places to eat and shop. Nice expe$$ive dinners if that's what you are looking for. Tourist spot for sure. If you like to do the local thing I would choose somewhere else to look for dinner /fun.
