Vibrant and sun-kissed, it’s not hard to see why Miami is often described as a little corner of paradise. It is here that you will find plenty of sunshine, white sands, beautiful Art Deco architecture, and incredible food and nightlife. It’s glamourous yet breezy, energetic yet laid back, and, most importantly, it is a trip you will never forget.
To match the city’s effortless energy, we recommend hiring a car as soon as you can, so that you have the freedom to go wherever the wind takes you. There are many ways you can do this, and one way is by renting a car at the airport. Miami International Airport is the primary airport for the Miami area, and here you can find a range of 14 well-known companies such as Alamo, Budget, and Sixt, all located on site. Depending on what you are looking for, you will find a variety of high-quality and budget-friendly options to choose from.
If you’d like to wait before renting a car, then don’t worry, there are plenty of car rental companies downtown too. Many of the same larger rental companies have branches both in the airport and downtown, and you will also find many local businesses dotted around the city too. Because car rental in Miami is so popular, you’ll find that no matter where you are in the city you’ll never be too far from a pickup point. Hertz, for example, has 40 pickup locations situated across town. We recommend doing your research prior to your trip if you have a specific vehicle, deal, or location in mind however, so that you can guarantee it will be available at the time you want it.
Hopping in a car is one of the best ways to explore the beautiful streets of Miami. With pastel buildings lining the streets, ocean views around every turn, and famous Florida highways to cruise down, you’re going to love driving in and around this fantastic part of the United States. But, before you get behind the wheel do make sure to check out the local area’s rules, regulations, and laws to ensure the safety of yourself and everyone else around you.
As well as the car rental agencies available at the airport and in downtown Miami, you will find a handful of firms can pick customers up from the car rental lobby at the airport upon request. Included in this service are local, independent companies such as Miami Rent A Car, which comes highly recommended. They have a wide range of vehicles from small hatchbacks to bulky American muscle cars. Plus, by renting from them you will be supporting the local economy, and they may also be able to provide local knowledge that you may not get from international companies.
South Florida has an abundance of places to explore and discover, so make sure you set some time aside to head out of the city on a road trip or two.
At only an hour’s drive away, a trip to Miami must include a visit to Palm Springs. It is here that you’ll get a real taste of how Florida looks in the movies, so if you want a slice of luxury, pastel colours, and fancy places to get brunch then this is the place for you. But Palm Springs isn’t just about Coachella and naturist resorts, you can also go exploring along the walking and hiking trails of the Tahquitz Canyons, or head to an outdoor art exhibition in the desert.
Or, for a longer trip out, why not journey down to Tampa and experience the rich, cultural diversity, award-winning restaurants, and fascinating history that comes with this incredible city?
