Week in Miami

hello,we have a week to spend in Miami before we head north to Myrtle Beach. were 4 young lads who want to go on the rip for a week.Was thinking maybe 3/4 nights on SoBe,one in Key West and also want to see the everglades. Would this be possible,geography wise?

Also what are the Jazz and Clay hostel like??

Cheers!

A short hop by bus @ $1.50 each way.

Heart of action 1-21 streets.

GREAT beach at 52nd.

about 35 blocks away. SoBe nightlife starts to get heavy in the last teens and down. But the cab from 56th and collins to the start of SoBe is no more than like $23. Just an approximation.

The heart of South Beach is 1-21 streets - but 56 & Collins is a 10 minute bus ride - super quick.

AG i am very happy to tell you i think we managed find a place on 10th street(?? not sure how ye say it??) near flamingo park right on the bay side.

Is this a safe area??Were getting a good deal , were 10 blocks from the beach but overall i think we've done ok,any advice on the property,found it through craigslist.

Now the jobhunt starts, is there a novelty factor being Irish in Miami like there is in Boston?? Might help us get barwork,as the Irish are known for havin the odd drop??Construction work is also being looked at.

Cheers.

Excellllllent!!

Here's why: 10th street puts you right in the center of South Beach. Flamingo Park is a great big public green park with a PUBLIC swimming pool, tennis courts, basketball courts, and a dog park... The dog park is a GREEEEEAAAAAT place to meet new friends. And that is where the Irish charm will do you a great favor. Wander up to an attractive dog owner and pretend you find their dog delightful. Pour it on - tell 'em you have a dog just like that one back in Ireland and you miss it so much. You're new in town and don't know anyone. Blah Blah Blah - you're in!

The area is great - all younger folks living in small apartment blocks. You need no car. You can rent a bike or a scooter and you're all set.

Look for jobs on craigslist, on careerbuilder.com and monster.com miami.backpage.com/

Cheers

AG
