Do I need a rental car?

I'll be visiting Hollywood Fl for vacation. Do I really need a rental car for the full week?

I plan on just hanging on the beach and around town except for a day trip to the Keys one day.

So, Could I just rent the car for 1 day?

How much does a taxi cost to get from Ft Lauderdale Airport to Hollywood beach area?

-Average for a rental car this time of the year (economy-compact) it is around 12-18 a day, Avoid at all cost Payless at the FLL terminal, customer service is really bad and also they overcharge everything. I never had a problem with Advantage and Budget.

- Taxi ride should be around 20 - 25. It is a really short trip but taking the taxi from the airport its expensive.

Good luck.

I would estimate $40.00 +/-. Local bus service is fair at best, sometimes waiting time may be longer than expected or posted.

If you don't mind walking, you probably won't need a car. There are many good restaurants along the Broadwalk and you can also get around using the trolley, which goes from one end of the Broadwalk to the other and also goes into downtown Hollywood.
