Getting to Miami by Air

Edit This

By Air there are two Major Commercial Airports for travel to Miami: Miami International ( www.miami-airport.com) and Ft. Lauderdale/Hollywood International Airport ( www.fortlauderdaleinternationalairport.com). Ft. Lauderdale Airport is farther away from Downtown Miami and Miami Beach but ticket prices tend to be cheaper flying into Ft. Lauderdale. But if you are not planning to rent a car a taxi from Ft. Lauderdale to Downtown Miami or Miami Beach can run up to around $65. Miami International Airport is used more as an International Gateway. more..

Miami by Rail

Edit This

There is only one way of getting to Miami by rail which is Amtrak. Amtrak has daily trips to Miami. If you want to take your own car from the Northeast but don't want to drive too much you can take the auto train from Washington D.C. to Sanford FL, which is right by Orlando FL, and then take the Florida Turnpike right into Miami. The auto train will carry you and your car from DC to Sanford.
