What To Do In Miami Cruise Port, because quite frankly, I can’t wait to go back to explore this exciting, vibrant city in South Florida again.
1. Getting To Miami Beach Area From Miami Airport Or The Cruise Port
Use the Uber app, we never had to wait long, 5 minutes tops during the whole trip. Although on the trip from the airport, we did get one car from Uber and one taxi from the airport. We were travelling as a large group and didn’t all have the Uber app. The Uber costs $25, whereas the taxi from outside the airport costs $55. That’s a huge difference for two cars doing the same trip at the same time of day.
2. Walking From North Beach To South Beach In Miami?
Don’t let North Beach locations put you off, we walked up along the sand to South Beach and it took around 20-30 minutes. Although please do bear in mind, that was with me constantly stopping to take photos, we could have done it quicker. The location of the Rui Plaza was fabulous, backing onto the beach and the hotel has a great pool.
3. Cruise Lines Who Sail Into The Port Of Miami
This is just a few of the cruise lines who sail into Port Miami. There are also lots of cruise lines who dock 30 miles away at Fort Lauderdale Cruise Port berths.
- Royal Caribbean Cruises
- MSC Cruises
- Norwegian Cruise Line
- Disney Cruise Line
- Celebrity Cruises
4. Check Out The Famous Miami Beach, Beach Huts
South Beach is a must-see destination in Miami. Whilst famous for its white sands, endless beaches, turquoise waters of the Atlantic Ocean and brightly colored beach huts. You can also spend hours strolling along taking in all the sights. Plus take the time to chill and rent beach chairs, an umbrella, and enjoy water sports such as jet skiing, parasailing, or paddle-boarding.
5. And The Art Deco Buildings
Of course you can’t visit South Beach and not check out the largest collection of candy colored Art Deco buildings and architecture in the world. I honestly can’t describe how incredible the Art Deco area is. If you love architecture then its a real treat to wander taking in the sights stopping for the odd cocktail or or course coffee.
6. Take A Walking Tour
Take a walking tour and learn about the history and architecture of the buildings, see the vintage cars and see icons such as the ‘The Birdcage Club’ itself which is now a wonderful cafe called the Birdcage Cafe, 1250 Ocean Drive at 13th Street. Built-in 1939, it’s one of South Beach’s oldest and most celebrated Art Deco landmarks.
7. Enjoy A Bottomless Brunch At The Palace On South Beach
If you are going to be in Miami for a couple of days, check out the Palace Bottomless Brunch. Alternatively, nip in to see a free show and grab a cocktail. I can’t tell you how incredible this show is. Those ladies were awesome, and the atmosphere is electric.
South Beach is also known for its vibrant lively nightlife. Visit some of the famous nightclubs, bars and lounges for a cocktail or two.
8. Check Out The Art And Culture At The Wynwood Walls
The Wynwood Walls is a glorious outdoor street art museum, craft market and street food market located in the Wynwood neighbourhood of Miami. I suggest getting an Uber from Miami Cruise Port as its around 10 minutes drive away but is totally worth the fare. Notably, Wynwood Walls is open to the public seven days a week and admission is also free.
Featuring a collection of large murals and also stunning street art created by some of the world’s most prominent artists. The Wynwood Walls were established in 2009 by the late Tony Goldman, a real estate developer and art lover, to revitalise the Wynwood neighbourhood, which was formerly an industrial area.
9. Where Did We Stay On Miami Beach
Rui Plaza, Miami Beach: The Rui is great value and is located on Miami beach in Florida, with a huge pool, restaurants and bars. The Decor is simple but spotlessly clean and an amazing location. It is just a 20-minute walk down the beach to South Beach.
