Taxi Cabs – They can be convenient when leaving your hotel and going a short distance, plus they’re easy to find. Taxi’s can be a good way to get around, but be careful – know where you’re going and how you would drive. Ask your hotel for best directions to your destination. Keep in mind that you might get a cab driver that does not speak your language. Frequently taking a side street is the fastest and shortest way from one fair to another. Also if traveling from Miami to Miami Beach look for others that might be interested in sharing a cab. It’s also a good way to meet people.
