Getting around in Miami - The city is lacking in public transportation, and once you’re off pedestrian-friendly South Beach, a rental car is necessary—and recommended—for extended visits. For those who don’t want to drive, there is a commuter Metrorail system that runs from downtown Miami to points south, including stops near Vizcaya Museum & Gardens and the Fairchild Tropical Gardens (www.miamidade.gov/transit).
When to go to Miami - December is a lively month in Miami and hotels are booked solid, starting with Art Basel Miami Beach, which takes place over the first weekend of the month (www.artbaselmiamibeach.com), and ending with the holidays. Be sure to reserve a room far in advance. Summer, which brings hurricane season and temperatures that reach into the nineties, is considered the off-season. The weather can be unpredictable, but rooms are easier to come by.
