Miami has always remained a fabulous destination to me. I always look forward to visit this fascinating place whenever I can. I find plenty of reasons to visit Miami – its weather, beaches and some of the awesome attractions here. I want to share my experience of a short trip to Miami which was made recently.
There are several ways to reach Miami from any part of the world as it is quite accessible. There are various international airlines that operate direct flights to Miami, such as British Airways, TAM, Airberlin, Virgin Atlantic, Iberia and many others. Being a native of the United States, I always take US Airways flights to Miami. There are other domestic carriers conducting flights to Miami like Delta Air Lines, American Airlines, United Airlines and others. You won’t find it difficult to reach Miami from different parts of the world.
I made a brief, 48-hour trip to Miami. Your Miami flights will either land at Miami International Airport or Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport, depending on the last minute flights you purchased. I, however, landed at Miami International Airport, and the entire check-out process was really smooth. I took a taxi to reach the city center. This is the cheapest and quickest way into the city if you are traveling on a budget. The other cheap option is to try Super Shuttle, which will help you save money.
Miami is well-known for its beaches. Though, it is not only about beaches here. Whether you travel by cheap international flights or U.S. domestic carriers, do make it a point to explore Miami neighborhoods whenever on a short trip here. Miami neighborhoods like Downtown Miami, Little Havana, Little Haiti and Wynwood Design District have lots of surprises in store for you. A visit to these places will instantly give you a feel as if you are walking in the streets of Latin American cities. Miami neighborhoods are home to several South American, Caribbean and Cuban immigrants.
Another major concern for those taking flights to Miami on a short trip is finding the best place to eat, relax and enjoy. I frequented many restaurants in Miami, and after a long search landed at the best restaurant so far all along my trips on various occasions here. I would recommend trying out at ‘Michael’s Genuine’, probably the best restaurant I’ve ever been to while in Miami. You must also check this out. Here you’ll thoroughly enjoy. You will be treated to homemade fresh and local ingredients. Try ordering deviled eggs and the crispy pig ears. Believe me, you are going to enjoy this!
Getting around Miami at low prices is what all visitors look forward to while visiting here. Make use of the public transportation system to the fullest. This is the cheapest way to get you around the city.
Another thing not to be missed out while in Miami are the food trucks. There is a flourishing and vibrant food truck scene at the Tropical Park in South Miami. Check these out and you’ll find all kinds of delicacies to satiate your gastronomic appetite.
