Miami – The City
Miami’s skyline is one of the most impressive in the world, especially if viewed
from the Atlantic.
Miami is divided into North, South, East, and Downtown which is the centre of the
city on the east side. This area is also where the Port of Miami is located, known
as the largest cruise ship port in the world. It is a good idea to drive in Miami
as all the sights are spread out and renting a hire car is inexpensive. When driving
in Miami note that the Streets run east to west and the Avenues, north to south.
Take a driving tour of Miami in your hire car and visit the Holocaust Memorial,
Coral Gables Waterways, the Jungle Island and Seaquarium. There are also many museums
and theatres to visit in Miami, including the Science Museum, Museum of Contemporary
Art and the Adrienne Arsht Centre for the Performing Arts.
Separated by the Biscayne Bay from the mainland, Miami Beach is rich in Art Deco
architecture, and lined with well facilitated beaches, ideal for lazy days in the
sun or numerous water sport activities.
Attractions in the Miami Area
From Miami take the short drive by rental car to the Everglades National Park which
covers 2500 square miles of Florida, from Everglades City to Key Largo. Here you
could take an Everglades airboat tour, spend a few hours kayaking, or venture round
the 10,000 Islands with a guide to explain the wildlife and beauty of the area.
Less than 25 miles north of Miami, is Fort Lauderdale’s extensive sun kissed Blue
Flag beaches, including the Deerfield Beach, Hillsboro Beach and the sporty Pompano
If you have two spare days whilst on a car hire holiday in Miami, head south for
3 ½ hours and stop overnight at Key West which is the most southern island of The
Keys. Visit the Hemingways’ House; take a tour of Key West by mini train and then
party whilst the sun sets over the Pacific. Stop off in Key Largo on the drive back
to Miami, so that you can experience the spectacular coral and sea life either by
snorkelling, scuba diving or in a glass bottomed boat.
