""Two lane main street""

I used to have to take this street from Sunset Place all the way to the airport for work. It has mean commuter traffic in the morning and in the evening. Be careful in the summer the drainage for this street doesn't seem to be adequate. It flood pretty bad and makes people drive pretty crazy. Other than that this street offers a little of everything. It has the old miami feel once you get to calle ocho it has endless small shops offering all kinds of wares.

"Decent fun area with relaxed nightlife"

Red Road, also known as 57th Avenue, has a very nice outdoor mall named Sunset Place near 72nd Street. There one can find bars, restaurants, shopping, and movies all while still enjoying the Florida sun. It really is an area for all ages though. I hung out there from middle school well through my adolescence. While the other side of US1, Red Road becomes somewhat residential through Bird Road when it reaches the Coral Gables area, it remains a main road and can sometimes have heavy traffic. Visit the neighborhood's first Whole Foods Market, near the intersection of Red Road and US1.

"Red Road through SW Miami: commuter trap"

Though primarily a residential road (except for when it crosses South Miami at Dixie), Red Road is important as a commuter road. It collects the southbound traffic from Coral Gables's westbound streets (because the Gables has few north-south roads), and distributes it to the University of Miami, Dixie Highway, South Miami, the Pinecrest residential neighborhoods, the Pinecrest schools, and Old Cutler Road. By Miami standards, it is a pleasant and scenic road. Which is a good thing, because if you are there when the many, many schools let out, you will be stuck in the school zones for a long, long time. The canal on the eastern side of the road south of Dixie guarantees no escape.
