Collins is beautiful. Art Deco buildings, art galleries, eateries, hotels, shops, but it’s a far walk from the foubtainbleu (44th Street) to Lincoln Road (17th) so take a free trolley bus. They run every 15 minutes. Remember it’s the trolley, not the buses! That would...More

We drove down Collins Ave to observe and enjoy the architecture of the Art Deco buildings. They are colorful, beautiful and mostly restored. Its fun watching people from all over the world driving and walking, biking, scootering and generally having a great time.

The place is dotted with numerous hotels and resorts on one side while a gorgeous looking beach on the other side. Beach chairs n towels can be rented out by paying a premium amount else request it from the hotel you staying at.

Yea definitely Ocean Drive if you want to be right in the middle of the action. Collins is the street behind so its not a bad option either. The Rock Hostel is always doing tons of fun party activities.
