best place to stay with no car--near restaurants!

by geoscience

We are going to the Miami area and don't want to have a car. Where is the best place to stay? I have been looking at Coral Gables, Coconut Grove and Miami beach. I love the pool, but not a fan of the ocean. We like to roam around and walk to restaurants.

The South Beach area has one zillion hotels, billions of bars, nightclubs, and restaurants, and is quite walkable. However, it is quite popular, and can be crowded, sometimes with some amazing people (amazing in the sense that you have never seen so many products of the science of plastic surgery wearing so little). This, of course, may be fine with you ;-)

We have attended two conventions at the convention center in South Beach, and both times walked to everyplace we wanted to go...

Agree with the S Beach suggestion. You can even cab it if needed....but everything is withing walking distance. You will not have a problem acessing restaurants/bars/shopping/etc.

South Beach is the place to stay if you want to do without a car. Hotels along Ocean Dr. and Collins Ave. are with easy walking distance of many restaurants. There is also a bus service for 25¢ per ride! A great deal in an otherwise expensive town.

Forgot to add that we are very quiet people. Sorry to say this, but we actually fall asleep around 10pm. I was in South Beach and it seemed a bit too loud. I figure this is normal for the area.

South Beach = Not quiet! What time of the year do you want to visit Miami?

Re: best place to stay with no car--near restaurants!

by geoscience

We are coming during President's week Feb. 13th-20th. I have been to the Miami area once. We stayed at Hampton Inn in Coconut Grove because of the free parking. No car this time, so was wondering about the best place to be. I was looking at Coral Gables, Coconut Grove and Miami Beach(Royal Palm hotel). Love pools, but not the beach. Love to walk to restaurants and just lie by the pool.

Re: best place to stay with no car--near restaurants!

by cochinjew

Between Coconut Grove and Coral Gables, there are more things to do and walk around at the Grove. CG is very quiet and if you stay near the Mile, there are some restaurants and bookstores and not much else. you cant walk very far either..Grove is a bit more touristy and there are places you can walk to. and it is not a beach area even though it is by the water and there is a beach nearby if you want it..

Re: best place to stay with no car--near restaurants!

What about between Coconut Grove and Miami Beach(Royal Palms hotel area)?

Re: best place to stay with no car--near restaurants!

by ekimiami

The best place to stay is definitely in South Beach in the art deco district, you will be abale to walk everywhere, restaurants, bars, shops and the beach.

Travel Tips for Miami

Downtown Miami

by OrlandoBR

The Downtown area is a decaying part of Miami. It's the right place to buy all sorts of junk and falsifications.

Anyway, there are cool things there too: the Metro-Dade Cultural Center, Bayside Marketplace and the modern architecture of the skyscrapers.

Washington Ave.

by cobrioc

Other than the Wolfsonian Foundation and the clubs and restaurants, there's not much to see on Washington Ave. An exception, believe it or not , is the 1937 post office at 1300 Washington Ave , a Depression Moderne building with an enormous dome on the south corner.

The Cuban community is very...

by PartyRambo

The Cuban community is very large in Miami, as it's the closest major U.S. centre to the island country.
Little Havana is a nice place to wander through in an afternoon (visit a cigar shop, as some of them will let you watch the process).

There's an interesting Brigade 2506 Memorial, betwwen 12th & 13th Avenues, dedicated to the 'Martyrs Of the Bay Of Pigs invasion' of April 17, 1961, just off the main street, and there's a Cuban Walk of Fame (a copy of the one in Hollywood) called the 'Stars of Calle Ocho' for Cuban celebrities - find it beginning at SW 8th St. (best known as Calle Ocho) & SW 17th Ave. (known as Teddy Roosevelt Ave.).
**See the website http://cuban-exile.com/doc_201-225/doc0218.htm for a list of official/alternate street names if you're going to visit the area.

It may seem odd, but a walk through this quiet area of Miami can be quite relaxing - presumably, when a holiday or festival is on, the area is alive with activity, but in mid-February, things were quiet & subdued, and provided me an enjoyable rollerblading afternoon.

Crandon Family Amusement Center

by grandmaR

In 1967, we took the kids to the Crandon Park. Crandon Park has a wonderful kid-friendly beach. There is also a little family park

My kids rode on the antique carousel (photo 2), which first started spinning in 1950. It has been restored and started up again in 1998 after having been idle for 20 years. They also went to the zoo area - I don't know when the Miami Zoo was moved from this location, but this area is now a 200-acre garden. In those days there was a kind of petting zoo (photo 4).

Now there is a roller rink, and a squirting fountain. You can also take a canoe ride across one of the lakes in the Central Garden and there is also a "Tropical Hayride" on weekends from 10am-1pm and enjoy a half hour of stories about Key Biscayne's colorful history while touring Crandon Park Gardens, a pirate area and an Indian village. It sounds like an ideal and low cost place for children to play.

Hours: Daily 8am-sunset(beach); Daily 10am-7pm (amusement area)
• Cost: $5 per car

Directions: Take I-95 S to Key Biscayne/Rickenbacker Causeway exit. Causeway requires $1 toll. After crossing (photo 3) at sign for Crandon Park take left turn to South Beach lot. After the toll booth, go to the far right of the parking area for the amusement center.

by pulgaron

The locals are going to kill me for divulging this info. If after walking through Coconut Grove, or visiting The Vizcaya Estate, you need to sit and cool off for a while, there is no better place than Scotty's Landing. This is a strictly locals bar and grill located right on Biscayne Bay, next to Dinner Key Marina. Staff is friendly and the patrons will behave like family. Hard to find, if you are traveling on south Bayshore drive, just east of SW 27 Avenue, look for the City hall entrance, go to city hall make a left, walk through the boat launching ramps and voila!. If you miss the City hall sign then look for the Chart House sign, go in follow it to the end, Scottys is to the right of The Chart House. Bring your dog they are allowed to sit by your table. Try their conc fritters, or their fish and chips, qwash it down with a pint. The view from all the tables is fantastic and the sea breeze nonstop.
