“A symbol of the city”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2014

This arena is located in front of the Freedom Tower, and like this one, it's one of the main symbols of Miami, though the arena is a modern one.

“Best sports show”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2014

Miami Heat gives you an awesome show, even if you are not fanatic about basketball. There is always something going on. Get tickets!

“Great Arena”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2014

I loved the arena, it is a truly beautiful and a very functional building. My issue is with the very difficult time we had getting a taxi after the Miami Heat game. It is no problem getting dropped off right in front of the arena before a game but that street is reserved for limos only after the game. One has to walk several blocks and get really lucky to find an empty cab.

My other issue is that the Heat lost to Golden State.

“Pittbull Rocked New Year's Eve”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2014

I love the arena. It is well lit and staffed with helpful attendants. There many different seating choices for sporting events, concerts, the circus and other special events. The only down side is the traffic which can bottleneck leaving the city.
