    Taxis are expensive in Florida, soon as you get in the taxi it cost you $1.25 and it works out at around $2 to $3 a mile,and as some of the places that you want to visit could be at least 5 to 6 miles away it leaves a hole in your pocket. There are also limo's that you can hire but they are twice as much and more.

    The buses are a great and cheap way of getting around. In Fort Lauderdale you pay $1 for any distance in the area one way or you can pay $2.50 for an all day pass. Get a time table and route map from a bus driver or from your hotel, they are really easy to follow and go regularly. All the buses have numbers so it is easy to find the one you want for a certain route. The buses except $1notes or change. The drivers are usually very helpful and also the bus has a computer on board that will tell you when the next stop is comng up and where you are on the route. The buses can be a little cold sometimes because of the air conditioning. In Miami Beach the buses cost $1.25. so make sure when you get on that you have some small coins as they don't give change.

    Draw Bridges

    If you are near the beach or Canals, prepare to wait for draw bridges to be raised and lowered. They are pretty efficient here, and it is usually only about a 5 minute wait.
