Greetings from Ireland!
We travel to Miami December 28 for a cruise departing Port Everglades on December 30 - 2 adults, 4 children.
We would like to see Miami on the 29th - open top bus tour.
A little confused where to stay - here’s what I’m thinking. Arrange a transfer from Miami airport to a downtown hotel (near the open top bus route). Hopefully be close to nice restaurants for dinner on the night of arrival. Do bus tour the next day. Then hire a car the morning of the 30 to drive to Port Everglades - with a stop for some shopping along the way.
Any advice on a hotel? Happy to take 2 queen rooms. Budget around $300 per room per night.
There appears to be lots of nice hotels (and reasonable ones) out at the airport area, but I think this may be a bit of hassle getting us all into the city the next morning for a tour.
Don’t mind not being near a beach - just a nice central area.
Thanks in advance!
