Driving around Miami International Airport

As soon as you leave the car rental centre you'll find yourself a sliproad leading onto the Airport Expressway. This toll road leads all the way into Miami Beach. Traffic can be fast and busy, so make sure you're comfortable with your car before leaving the parking lot. Automatic cars are more popular in America. If you're not used to them you might want to ask specifically for a manual transmission. Traffic in America drives on the right-hand side of the road, so keep your wits about you: especially when turning.

Getting to your destination

Cars are almost essential for an enjoyable trip to America, even if you're staying in the city. If you're flying into Miami Airport you can reach a number of interesting destinations. These are a few of our favourites.

Nightlife on The Avenue, an arts scene in Pineapple Grove, and a huge public beach ensure the popularity of this gentrified beach town.
