We spent a few days in Miami, Florida while waiting for our flight to Peru. We had a lot of fun there and there was plenty to see and do.
Beautiful weather the whole time. Lots of sun.
This is the famous South Beach part of Miami Beach.
We would take a bus from our hotel to the transit station where we could catch the commuter metrorail straight to downtown Miami. In downtown was an automated tram called the Metromover to get around downtown. There we signed up 48 hours on the Big Bus of Miami where you could get on and off stops as you wished. We saw downtown Miami, Miami Beach, Coral Gables, Coconut Grove, and Little Havanna.
Skyline of Miami.
Art deco buildings.
Biltmore hotel in Coral Gables.
Inside the Biltmore.
Statue to Christopher Columbus.
Miami Heat Coliseum. They were right in the middle of the NBA playoff when we were there.
My favorite place at Bayfront Park where we spent extra time in public lounge chairs enjoying the weather in nice shady breezy spots.
We took a tour out to the Everglades to ride the airboats.
This was our airboat to travel through the grassy everglades.
Alligators at the park.
Alligators in the wild. I love alligators.
