My Hubsand and I just got back from a short stay in Miami for the Orange Bowl. Prior to going I checked this forum a lot, and I didn't get much info from it, so I thought I would write a little about my trip so that others (maybe even those going to Super Bowl) would have some info. Our date of stay was Jan 2-4th. We flew into Miami airport which was pretty easy to navigate. Got a taxi to the InterContinental Hotel (dowtown Miami) which cost us about $25. See hotel section for my review on the hotel. Checked into the hotel and got a taxi to Dolphin Stadium and that was $50. It took us about 35 minutes to get there on a Tuesday at 2pm, which I guess was a little lengthy according to the cab driver. Went to the game and the stadium is huge and we were way at the top, but it was great. After the game, just walked to the front on the stadium and picked up taxi, back to the hotel, and again, about $50 for taxi. Next day, decided to go to South Beach. We took the city bus, which at 12 noon on a Wednesday was a good idea (safety wise). It cost $3 for both of us from the hotel to South Beach where a taxi would have cost us $18. South Beach is basically just that... a beach, nice restaurants and shopping. Pretty cool, something you should see if you are going that far. We walked the whole thing, down Ocean Drive, to LIncoln Rd. (shopping) and then to Espanoza Way (a disappointment of hispanic shopping, food, etc.) And we took the bus back to the hotel. By this time is was feeling a little more unsafe( the bus at 3:30pm). The bus that takes you to/from South Beach to dowtown and Bayside is the C or the S. Later that night, we went to Joes Stone Crab and took a taxi for about $20 with tip. See review on restuarants. Took a taxi to Bayside after eating at Joes, a shopping area with entertainment and walked around just because it was close to out hotel and walked to hotel from there. If you have some time to kill and you can walk to there, I would recommend it, but I wouldn't get a taxi from South Beach to shop here, since a lot of it is the same. Left the next morning after a late breakfast. Overall we didn't find much to do here, a great place to have a few days, but South Beach would probably be a better location, but we had free nights at the Intercontinental.
