Getting Around Miami

Miami's got a lot of to see and visit, someplace's are easily accessible by foot, bike or car, while others may require a boat (Florida keys anyone?). Although If you book a hotel in South Beach, we recommend going on foot to take in the trendy scene and cool Art Deco. And unless you plan on venturing out to the suburbs or going on an outlet binge, there's really no need to rent a car. But if you do! Get on your map, take a deep breath and get ready for one of the largest, most complicated, daunting highway and grid systems in the southeast.

For everything else there's Uber and Lyft, making Miami incredibly easy to get around and cab drivers incredibly angry that they don't get around. Lastly, if technology isn't your thing, or you're just too loyal to the unions, you can still get said disgruntled cabs or the Metrobus to shuttle you around.
