      Taxis, kids and car seats/boosters

      by rafscab Online Now Feb 11, 2014 at 11:50 AM


      I'm flying to Miami Airport with my wife and 2 daughters aged 3 and 11 months and we need to go to Fort Lauderdale. I want to go by taxi but I need to know if I MUST have car seats for the kids. If I don't take the car seats with me, it's a problem taking a cab? Will the driver refuse to take us?
      I'm trying to avoid renting a car with boosters for such a short and single ride.
      Thank you so much in advance for your response.

      Should I rent a car at the port or should I just get a cab and rent later when coming back from a cruise ?

      Would somebody recommend some restaurants/cafes in Miami and surrounding area? I'm looking for some smaller, more authentic places and especially ones that are not available outside of that area. It could be chain restaurants as well. Last time I was in Miami I tried Giraffas, 100 Montaditos, and Umami Burger. These places are not available where I live (New Jersey.) I'm pretty much looking for something that I cannot find at home. I hope this is not confusing.

      While in Miami Beach & Miami Area if you want to park on-street, how does that system work? What information do you have to input on those green parking poles (license plate, phone number,etc)? What payment method can you use and which one is the best/safest?

    • Miami - best place to stay for beach/shopping in May/June

      by pr1970 Online Now Nov 29, 2013 at 5:21 AM

      Hi All

      First time visiting the states next year with my wife and want some suggestions for places to stay for a week. Really dont want to spend more than $150 a night.
      We wont have a car, and want somewhere close to beach, shopping and nightlife if possible. nightlife isnt so important as long as there are some decent places to eat/drink. Shopping for clothes and gadgets (for me). Beach , not bothered but must be clean and not too crowded.

      Any suggestions?

      Thanks alot

      Going from Orlando to Miami Dolphins Statium on December 29th

      by Mietto Online Now Nov 23, 2013 at 3:23 PM

      I'm from Brazil, and I and my girlfriend will be visiting Orlando for New Year's Eve. We've never been to Orlando, Miami or Florida.

      We just got an idea to grab a couple of tickets for a Miami Dolphins game starting at 1:00pm on December 29th, so we're planning to drive from Orlando early in the morning, watch the game, stay a while in Miami and go back to Orlando at night.

      We don't know anything about the traffic in this region, especially close to New Year's Eve, so my question is: is it possible for this plan to go wrong, due to very heavy traffic, closed roads or things like that?

      I'm kinda worried because here in Brazil, on some holidays, a trip that normally takes 3 hours could easily turn into a 12 hour nightmare...

      Plan to be in the Miami area with a car for a weekend in the beginning of February... want to see South Beach (walk, shop, dinner?) and also the Everglades (Shark Valley) and then fly out on Sunday. Looking for a reasonably priced hotel (no more than about $200), nice for mature adults, in safe area. Not necessarily at the airport since I have a car to return there.

      Miami Stopover

      by dejavu2gb Online Now Oct 30, 2013 at 5:26 AM

      Hi All

      I will be stopping over in Miami Next Saturday 9-November en-route to Santiago.
      Any suggestions what can be done in this time? (6-hour layover)
      (we will be returning to Miami a few weeks later so will do main site seeing etc then).

      I have done some research and seen Dolphin Mall is nearby for some shopping, and Sawgrass Mills are these worth a visit to kill some time during our 6-hour layover?
      Maybe a nice place to go for some nice food and have a relax?

      Any other cool suggestions will be welcomed.

      Miami for a day

      by Dabs Online Now Dec 26, 2012 at 2:34 PM

      I'm going to be flying into Miami in January on a Friday night pre cruise (landing 8:15pm), driving to Ft. Lauderdale to spend the night, hubby will do a swim in the morning and then we have all day Saturday and until about noon on Sunday to do something, both nights are booked and prepaid in Ft. Lauderdale.

      I think we will do a short Everglades tour on the day we return from the cruise, booked through the cruise line, but I thought Miami might be an enjoyable place to spend a day pre cruise. I enjoy looking at architecture and would love to try some Cuban food while there. I haven't done a lot of research but I will try to find some sample one day itineraries but 1st the pesky dull questions

      1) do I need to get a Sun Pass with my rental car? It's7.99 per day with Dollar which is a lot less than the other rental agencies for a Miami pickup, FLL dropoff. I'm guessing we will be driving to and from Miami, once on Friday at about 9 pm, twice on Saturday in the late morning and probably evening.

      2) if we can avoid toll roads without traffic headaches, are the toll roads clearly marked before you get on them? And if you do end up on one by accident, is there a way to pay the toll within a period of time like in Chicago where there's a number to call?

      3) good Cuban restaurant in Miami or Ft. Lauderdale or en route?

      4) parking, is Miami a "park and leave the car" destination or a "drive and find a spot" destination?
