    Miami Transportation

    We rented from Family Auto and had a great rate, less than $40. They gave you the toll reader sun pass, so no problems there, and just paid tolls at the end. The owner works there and he is local, so ask for him if you want to know directions. We just used GPS and had a great time in Miami.

    We had a family group of 11 and needed transportation to the seaport. I contracted with EEZZExpress and they did the round trip for a very reasonable amount. One of our group left his cell phone in the vehicle. I contacted the company and they agreed to send the phone to us at our home in Maryland. They went the extra mile when they did not have to...

    Saint Augustine Transportation

    I bought a trolley ticket (good for 3 days) the first day I was in St. Augustine and rode it around to familarize myself with the city before doing any sightseeing. The trolley is very useful especially if you are staying in downtown St. Augustine as parking is almost impossible to find unless you pay $6+.

    The Mathews Bridge (a.k.a. the "red bridge") is one of the high bridges that connect Downtown to the city's booming southeastern neighborhoods and beaches. Once you've crested the top, the view heading westbound into Downtown unfolds in an aerial panorama of the skyline fronted by ALLTEL Stadium and the Sports Complex. Heading eastbound, the...

    Sanibel Island Transportation

    I used Santiva Cab this time to get to Sanibel from the airport. What a pleasant surprise. The van was new and comfortable - other cabs I used in the past were older and did not seem so clean. The driver, Roland, really knew the island and was really friendly and professional. I felt like I got my money's worth at $55. I will call them again to get...

    Fort Myers Transportation

    We think you will definately enjoy Fort Myers much more with your own car or a rental. It is a big town, and with all of the beaches the Lee Island Coast has to offer, you must have a car to see sights at your pace.

    Miami Transportation

    From one section of the terminal to another, there is a Skytrain. It runs all along the D concourse from D1 to D60 and you can also access some of the E gates from the Skytrain. It is quicker than walking and quicker than the Skyride. The wheelchair pushers always take me on the Skytrain rather than the moving walkways. It is on level 3 so you may...

    I have rarely been so frustrated as driving around Tampa, especially near the beaches. Despite a relatively small amount of traffic, I have never had so many people pull out in front of me, cut me off, or creep across a 4-lane road despite oncoming traffic. Seemed like the people had no concept of staying out of the way of others, basically...

    It's pretty hard to get lost as this is a small island with a few well-marked main roads. Okay, so we did go around in circles a few times, but we weren't paying attention! The main roads across are Periwinkle Way, which you come onto as you leave the causeway (really long bridge). You'll run into Tarpon (not Tampon) Bay Road. Go right to get onto...

    The travel through here can be relatively easy. If taking I-95, go with the flow. That can get backed up at times, especially to airport and the Port Everglades into the cruise ship area. A taxi driver said that direction can take 1+ hours form the airport in the wrong time of day.

  • Tampa International Airport

    Tampa Transportation

    Tampa International Airport is one of very few airports (that I've been to at least) which offers free wi-fi internet. I figured this was worthy of a tip since most airports make you buy a "pass" in order to access their internet. So if you're looking for an airport to depart out of, or have a long layover in, Tampa would be a good one due to its...

    The airport is a central hub with two terminals (A and B). A tram takes you out to the area where the planes are boarded. Included in the price of the lodging (for some of the Disney hotels) is round trip transportation between the airport and your hotel. They will even pick your bags up for you at the claim. This means you check your luggage in at...
