    I am not an expert on Miami, but I would suggest South Beach. Beautiful beach and architecture, and lots of restaurants.

    I was thinking of that. Iíll have to do some research and see if Ubering is possible. Thanks for the suggestion.

    Where are you staying? I use Uber and Lyft down there and they have been fine. I have also rented a car for a day to cruise around and check things out. South Beach is the big tourist attraction, and Little Havana is also pretty interesting if you like Cuban food. Gulfstream is about 40 minutes north of the Port, and is a beautiful racetrack with a small casino. If that interests you, you might want to check and see if they are running. Have a blast!

    Weíre staying at Aloft Miami - Brickell. Lots from our group are staying there so thatís how I came up with it. Iíll look at Google Maps and see where the heck it is. Iíll see if the racetrack is running for sure. Thanks for the suggestions. We are so excited for this adventure!

    We have stayed a couple of times at the Marriott Biscayne Bay. It is right at the port where you can see the ships.

    Weíre on the MSC Seaside. 7 day Western Caribbean. The hotel we are in is a Marriott affiliate. (this is a Cosmo cruise). Itís 7 miles from the port. I used google maps and found lots to do within walking distance or short Uber. Thereís a ďmarketplaceĒ within a block that looks like it has lots of shops/bars/restaurants.
