Definitely a place to visit at night, when lit the colours of all the buildings are just amazing. Plenty of restaurants and bars along Ocean Drive to choose from. The strip is always very busy as it's so iconic, you'll also start to notice parts of Ocean Drive that are in the likes of Miami Vice and Scarface etc. As... More

Everything in walking distance...we cane at a good time when it wasn't too crazy busy. We had to bring our infant and were surprised at many families as we thought it would be all party goers. Good place for the beach walking and eating. We enjoyed ourselves thoroughly.

If you are not the party animal, this district is to be avoided at night. If you are looking for a nice and quiet dinner, go elsewhere at night. This said, during the day, it is a very cosy and nice area, with beautiful art-deco buildings, nice bars and restaurants. What a contrast with the nights. Oh and for shopping:... More

It is a lot of fun to walk through this district. The buildings are interesting and take you back in time. Night time walks here are better simply due these buildings being lit up by beautiful neon coloured lights. Small artfully created buildings each with their own personality.

It's like going into the past... The houses in the Art Deco Style are real eye-catchers. A great place to be!

Did the self guided walk in the Deco district. Wonderful buildings! Do your research so you know which ones to go inside! The Essex House was particularly nice. Walked for over 1 1/2 hrs and still didn't see all. Also, do it again at dusk to see all the lighting!

So many buildings restored and an era that is so memorable in its beautiful architecture. You just can't go to Miami without enjoying the beautiful buildings. Many hotels with fabulous restraints flank Ocean Drive.
