“A Walker's Paradise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 February 2012

Stroll down Ocean Drive from Sixteenth down to Fifth on the park side of the street at dusk, stop at the Art Deco Welcome Center at Tenth, and feast on the Deco and MiMo. The noise will be deafening at times, so avoid the clubbier venues (unless you like that sort of thing). And any of the side streets up toward Alton Road will have interesting surprises. Leave the car in the lot and walk.
