Ocean Drive is a major thoroughfare in the South Beach neighborhood of Miami Beach. The street is the center of the Miami Art Deco District, which is home to about 900 preserved buildings. The street has a magazine named after it, Ocean Drive magazine. Grand Theft Auto: Vice City also based the setting in Miami and has a replica of Ocean Drive with the very same name.
The road starts at South Pointe just south of 1st Street, near the southernmost end of the main barrier island of Miami Beach, about a quarter mile west of the Atlantic Ocean and it continues north to 15th Street, immediately southeast of Lincoln Road. It is mainly famous for its Art Deco hotels, among which the most popular is the Colony Hotel, undoubtedly the most photographed one, a 1939 boutique-inspired hotel that has made cameo appearances in countless movies and TV shows.
