Limos here in Miami are much cheaper than my hometown in Virginia because of the avaliability. You can rent a stretch SUV for the price of a Town Car stretch in most towns here, and its always nice to arrive at the club in a pimped out Limo, at certain ones it will actually help you gain entrance. When you get there, just hit the Yellow Pages or call your Concierge if thats avaliable to you.

Be safe and courteous when you're down here partying. Yes, there are just as many trouble starters here as there is anywhere you involve alcohol and hot women. Don't get caught up in it, I've noticed that they have beefed up the Police on Ocean over the past few years. You might get a free ride but its not going back to your hotel room.

If you can't walk to where you want, just use a taxi. the great thing about South Beach is that nothing is too far away. If you stay around 10th on Ocean, you can walk to anything like the Clevelander, Crobar, Mansion, you'd use a cab though for anything like Nikki Beach or Pearl, and I'd also cab it to Opium Garden. Anything like Bisacayne across the brisge, you'll need a cab too. The fares over a week will be much cheaper than the customary $18 a day parking fee along with your rental fee.

Please take the time to discover this city by boat. There is literally no other way to see some of the amazing abodes ( yes stars homes included). Whether you start on the Surf side and go around the Harbour and into the Bay, a boat ride is necessary. Not only will you see great houses and modern-day palaces, but the chances that you'll see Dolphins and Mantees in the Bay is high. There are plenty of boats for hire in South Beach, and all are advertised in the citys several free newspapers, one of them being Street. Water Taxis also connect to South Beach, so if you don't have a group big enough to justify a half day charter then this is for you.

If you're going to be spending time in Miami, rent a car, change the "chip" in your cell phone to match the Miami network. Public transit is not very good and the public phones that do work are costly.

Miami Beach is real small
and a lot of walking can be done.
But a better way
of making the most of your day,
is renting a bicycle.
From South Point to 41st Street,
one can peddle one's way
through the multi-pastel colors
of the Art Deco buildings,
roller bladers in bikini tops
and tiny, hot shorts,
or towards the
multi-million dollar mansions.
Just make sure to lock your bike,
when stopping to get a drink
at Lincoln Road
or the many other places to see.
Bike rentals are found at:
The Bicycle Shop
on Washington and 5th
Smile and tell them Andrea sent you.

To get there:
Usually you will fly, there is connections from all over the world to the Miami International.
If you are not planning to go far, then just use the bus & taxi and it will be OK.
Planning small trips, rent a car, for the price you get Fiat in Europe you can get Mustang in Miami. (Dont forget your credit card)

If you are staying in the South Beach area and fly into Miami International Airport, check with your hotel to see if there are free shuttles available from the airport to the hotel.
I found that most hotels (even the cheaper ones) offer free shuttle service from/to the airport. This could save you the cost of a rental - If you plan to stay and spend your time in South beach, a car isnt necessary. Walking will get you most places in South Beach and if needed, you can flag down a taxi.

you'll never have a problem finding a cab in miami beach. you can even rent a car even though the traffic is getting bad even here ...
but why bother? this is the ideal place to bike! it's flat and warm and sunny!
rent it in one of several places scattered all over washington ave... where you'll also find scooters!
ps- there's a place on 5th street that also organizes tours of the art deco district on bike
(miami beach bicycle center, 601 5th st.)

I made my way down to Miami beach by bus (The J line) which costs $1.25, plus an additional $.25 for a transfer which will let you change to any other bus up or down the length of the beach.
Advantages: 1) Got to see the longest contiguous collection of used car dealers I've ever seen in my life, 2) Met a charming fellow (who happened to be on the same plane as me from Newark) from Hawaii who had traveled about 15 hours straight to surprise his daughter for her 16th birthday
Disadvantages: 1) Had to wait 20 minutes for the bus, 2) If you've seen one used car dealer, you've seen them all.
On the other hand, I returned from the northern tip of Miami by Taxi:
Advantages: Met this most charming and pleasant Cuban refugee driver who not only took me to visit my friend, but came back 2 hours later to take me to the airport.
Disadvantage: $55 ($45 is the official fixed price rate to/from the airport, and in this case I probably tipped too little).
