Ok, so I am scheduled to travel to Miami in the Month of July for a conferece. The Conference will be held at the Miami Beach convention center. Basically I have 3 dilemmas becasue I am partially organizing this trip for our group.
Flying into Ft. Lauderdale is nearly $100 cheaper than flying into Miami International. Now the conference hotels are the
Miami Marriott located at 1633 Bayshore Dr.
Radisson Miami 1601. Biscayne Blvd.
Now based on you all's experience is the $100 I will save flying into Ft. Lauderdale worth it considering I will have to travel to one of these two locations. I have been reading that a cab or van can be $30 from Miami International to these hotels and if it is like $60 from Ft. Lauderdale I would rather fly into MIA but what opinion can you offer? Does anyone have any idea how much a cab from Ft. lauderdale can cost?
- Everyone obviously wants to go to the beaches, however, I have read South Beach is nearly 8 miles away from these hotels. If we wanted to go to South Beach what is the easiest way to get there? Also is South Beach really worth it? What other beaches are closer that are worth going to?
- 8 of us are comig and 5 are girls so we will be doing shopping. Everyone wants to go to Lincoln Road or Ocean Drive etc but i doubt these girls will dish out the money to spend at these trndy areas. Are there any nice boutiques, shopping spots that offer nice clothes shops for considerably lower prices.
- How is the light rail system in Miami?
Thanks for any help you can offer
