It's only about a mile to Galleria Publix- so should not even be $5 I would think.

I did the same thing this summer, we took a cab there ($7 with tip), did our shopping also went around the side to liquor store, then had the Publix cashier call another cab ($7 with tip) back to the Hilton. It's far cheaper than renting a car, and you can get everything you need.

Do you mean the liquor store called The Hut at the east end of that strip of shops? I'm pretty sure there is not a Publix Liquors there ( some Publix have them , others not). Publix does carry wine and beer - not hard liquor- so the Hut is the closest place for other alcohol I can picture.

Joytotheworld and Lulutoo...thank you both so so much for the great info....exactly what i needed to know. car rental rates were unbelievably expensive for 13 days in august so i definitely will be taking the cab for $7/each way to publix! i may even take the #40 bus that lulutoo suggested taking there and then return by cab.

big thank you to you both again!!!!.....cliu

Many visitors here have found they do not need to rent a car ( and pay daily parking too which is generally $25-35 /day at beach hotels. ). We have many other transportation options. Some rent a car for just a day or two when they want to go someplace far off the beach ( like Sawgrass Outlets or Hard Rock Casino or the Everglades). Otherwise you should not require a car.
