Ocean Drive

Visiting Miami Beach and not going to Ocean Drive? Impossible.

Calling all arts and culture lovers, this 15 street-long thoroughfare is bound to capture hearts (and a lot of our time!) with all it has to offer. Driving through the streets would seem like a snippet out of a movie; the iconic topless car, the palm trees lining the sides of the street, and the long road beyond. One of the first stops would be the Art Deco Welcome Center, which would give an up-close and personal insight to the area’s history and architecture. Visit the Art Deco buildings, and be ready for inspirations and ideas – especially for budding Architects and Artists. Another stop could be The Villa, also known as The Versace Mansion. Widely photographed, and a place invoking the curiosity and intrigue of visitors, this mansion is where the world-famous Gianni Versace lived and was murdered. With a variety of hotels, bars, and many neon-lights lining the streets, Ocean Drive also promises to deliver a happening nightlife, alongside an eventful day.

Brickell City Centre

Spanning three levels of shops and eateries, about 120 in number, the place promises entertainment and a good dining experience, hand-in-hand.
