About
Sit back and people-watch as you enjoy a nice meal along this historic boulevard in Miami Beach. Besides top-notch restaurants and hotels, Ocean Drive is famous for its beautiful Art Deco buildings, so a food and cultural tour of the area is a great way to explore it. At night, you can bar hop and dance the night away in one of Ocean Drive’s nightclubs. You can have a good time and picnic at Lummus Park, which runs along the best part of the road, or bask in the sun on the iconic South Beach right behind the park. – Tripadvisor

    I’m in Miami B*tch
    It’s a beautiful place to visit. Come during the day. The pastel buildings, art deco buildings, the sun and white sand beach awaits you. The turquoise water with calm waves is as beautiful as the Caribbean, even though it’s the Atlantic Ocean. Come with your friends or your soulmate but leave by dark. Miami is no longer safe at night unless you go to Club Liv.

    A Must
    This is a must drive, a beautiful place with beautiful people. A people watching paradise if one is interested in that. We often see movies being filmed here and people baring a lot of skin. It is fun, for at least one time in your life. Architecture is also most interesting and worthwhile.

    Miami Beach glam
    This is really as overexploited and commercialized as it gets, even in a city like Miami, but it is absolutely stunning. cannot imagine what this would have been like before it was made a carnival of glitter and neon, back when is was just the beating heart of Miami Beach and not just a tourist trap. But the beach is nice, the scenery impeccable. But the food and drink, mediocre.

    Iconic Miami Beach Street
    This is the iconic street in Miami Beach full of art deco buildings, bars and restaurants. It is also next to the beach. Expect to pay top end prices (e.g $20 cocktails etc) for food and drinks. Try and come out for Happy Hour which in most places is between 4 and 7pm. It is also a good place for people watching

    Retro Glam in Tropics
    Strolling down Ocean Drive feels like stepping onto the set of a classic Hollywood film. The vibrant pastel-colored buildings adorned with sleek lines and intricate details evoke a sense of nostalgia and sophistication. Each facade tells a story of Miami Beach's rich history, from its glamorous heyday to its resurgence as a modern-day hotspot.

I take lots of pictures when I travel and Miami is amazing! It’s expensive to buy drinks and eat there, but everyone needs to visit Miami Beach.

The only place where you can see 2 oceans - Atlantic Ocean & Ocean Drive. It's the most hashtagged street in the world according to Instagram and TikTok.
