Travel Attraction Guide
Car parking is known to be difficult and often expensive so the best way to visit Downtown is by taxi although there are busses running to many areas of this part of Miami as well as the Metromover train and Metrorail, Downtown can become quite empty late at night so taxi's are often safer around that time.
