Miami for One and Half Days with 5 Year Old


Can anybody please help with suggestions.

We are flying into Miami in May 2013 to do a 7 night Carribean Cruise. We arrive approx lunchtime and will need to be in Fort Lauderdale the next day by 3pm.

We also have our 5 year old daughter with us.

Can anybody suggest of the best place to stay - we would like to be in the middle of it as we will not have any transport. Also, on the beach if available. And what would be the best activities to do in the very short time we have. We will hire a driver to get us to the crusie ship the next day.

Your suggestions are very much appreciated

Many thanks

Miami Beach would be the logical choice. If you stay in south beach (south of about 23 street) you'll be in the most popular section with many places within walking distance and no need for a car.

For things to do, in the day or so that you have, the beach of course, plus you can stroll along Ocean Drive and/or Lincoln Road Mall. The park at South Pointe is particularly suited for children and has a great sunset view in the evenings. There is a 25c local bus that runs along Washington Ave to get around south beach.

Taxi from south beach to the Fort Lauderdale cruise port should be around $80.
