getting to WPB from Ft. Lauderdale

My husband and I will be in Ft. Lauderdale for the weekend of 8/11-8/14 and are going to a concert at the Sound Advice Ampitheatre. What would be the best way to get there? I'm guessing it's way to far to take a cab. Is there any public transportation or other options? We can always rent a car but just didn't know if that would be the best option. Thanks!

Unfortunately the pulic transportation system in South Florida is not as convenient as other places in the country, but depending on the time of the concert you could take the train and then catch a cab to Sound Advice (www.tri-rail.com). A cab would be a bit expensive as it is about 45 miles from Ft Lauderdale. I would guess renting a car will be your most convenient and cheapest option.

Hands down.... a rental would be easist. In addition, not sure where you are staying, but you can come north up the Turnpike, get off on Southern blvd exit, and it puts you right down the street fom the Sound Advice.
