Miami & South Beach Travel Information

When to Go

You can't get much further south in the US than Miami, so when it gets hot, it's searing; consequently winter is the peak season. The 'in-between' months, especially August through to November, see a range of enticing festivals so reservations come in handy at this time. The Calle Ocho Festival in March and the White Party in November especially draw the crowds.

Getting Around

If you're over 25 and have a major credit card, the easiest way to get to and around Miami Beach, Coral Gables or Miami is to rent a car.

Downtown Miami's driverless Metromover - a one-car train/bus that glides over the city - is a strange creature. But using it to sightsee feels safer than pounding the occasionally crumbling pavement. Plus it's free! Other options include the Metrorail and regional Tri-Rail, plus the local bus system.

Miami has two airports, Miami International Airport (MIA) and Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood International Airport (FLL). MIA is closer to town and has more connections; it's one of the busiest airports in the US. If you're coming in by land, you'll find plenty of Amtrak and Greyhound options, or you could drive (preferably through the awesome Florida panhandle).
