Ocean Drive, Miami Beach

3.9
#2 of 40 in Neighborhoods in Florida
A major road and a popular tourist attraction, Ocean Drive features the often-photographed mansion of fashion designer Gianni Versace. After years of neglect, the drive came back on the scene in the 1980s, when several world-class restaurants and hotels helped dispel the neighborhood's long-standing reputation for petty street crime. Today, this street cuts through an area renowned for its pastel sunrises, trendy nightclubs, and about 800 preserved Art Deco buildings. To enjoy a sunrise breakfast in bed, be sure to ask for a high floor facing east when you make your hotel reservations. Put Ocean Drive into our Miami Beach vacation trip planner and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

    After we were there during the day drive went in the early evening with the car over the ocean. What is going on during the day here, is no comparison to the night life. Evening everything is illuminated, the bars and restaurant filled with life and music. There are many people on the road, it goes to "see and be seen". Parking is almost impossible or at prices that can be bad looking one - > $40 for valet parking :-| If you're here, then on foot! And you have to like this little party mile!

Where to stay in Miami Beach

As Miami Beach is situated on an island across the bay from the main city, you'd be hard-pressed to find accommodation here that doesn't offer beach access. Accommodations on Miami Beach range from vacation rentals to boutique hotels to luxury resorts. Those wanting to be at the heart of the famous shopping, dining, and nightlife of Miami Beach should stay in South Beach along Ocean Drive or Collins Avenue. The island's Art Deco district offers a number of vintage hotels within walking distance of the area's main attractions and famous beaches.
