That Miami Vacation

Miami welcomes at least 15 million visitors annually and earns a lot of travel accolades from the largest websites in the world. For anyone considering to go on a first trip here or it’s just been a long time they visited, we’ve gathered useful information on Miami travel tips to help have an amazing trip. Here’s what we believe every vacationer needs to know before they visit:

Start with Accommodations

Miami has some of the highly rated hotels in the United States, famous for their resorts, amenities, and picturesque views. As amazing as these hotels are, you can be charged some hefty fees for them.

For anyone who doesn’t want to compete for rooms, we suggest you check out vacation rentals. They cost one-third of a hotel cost, and they offer almost similar services if not even better.

Transportation: How to Get Around

If you get a rental in south Florida, it’s not going to take you so much time to get to Miami. When you get to Miami, visitors can always rent a car, Segway, bike or scooter. Public transport options include bus, train, and taxis, Uber and Lyft are also available.

What to Pack

Make sure to pack the following:

  • comfortable walking shoes
  • flip flops
  • different stylish swimsuits
  • cocktail dresses
  • heels (if you plan to go clubbing)

Just like every beach vacation, it is a rule of thumb to have sun protection. Don’t forget a sun hat, sunscreen, sunglasses, lip balm with sunscreen, loose and airy clothing, swimsuit cover-ups, a beach bag, and a book.

For daily activities and sightseeing- pack a pair of jeans, tank tops or T-shirts, shorts, sweatshirts, and light jackets for cooler nights.
