Collins Avenue in Bal Harbour is a beautiful street but I prefer Rodeo Drive because it is more pedestrian-friendly and lively. Most of the shopping on Collins does not face the street and is inside of The Shops at Bal Harbour mall. The streetside shopping is down on Harding Avenue in Surfside, a few blocks to the south.

Here are some Google Street View comparisons of the two areas:

Collins Avenue, Bal Harbour: http://maps.google.com/maps?hl=en&so...46.57,,0,-3.03
(and for comparison's sake, Harding Avenue, Surfside: http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&sour...2,15.03,,0,3.6 )

Rodeo Drive, Beverly Hills: http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&sour...350.5,,0,-9.55

Bal Harbour looks amateur in comparison to those pics of Rodeo Dr.

I like Rodeo Drive but prefer Robertson Bl.

Anyway the OP asked where we buy clothes so for me it ranges from Gucci to Goodwill--if I see a store that intrigues me I'll go in and take a look.

I like the landscaping better in the Bal harbour shop area but the store buildings are more chic on Rodeo Drive.

collins avenue is nice it just depends where on collins you are, bal harbour is more of a mall atmosphere but collins avenue down by south beach its more open store boutique style, but i think worth avenue in palm beach or lincoln road in miami beach would give rodeo drive more of a run for its money.

I like them both actually but I prefer Bal Harbour it is much more attractive to me the way it is landscaped the unique high rises, and the whole tropical feel to it.
