Nov 14, 2012 - Be your own tour guide in Miami

Welcome to Miami. Traveling with Bus Rental Miami by bus or limo is one of the most economical and practical ways to travel to and around Miami. If you’re visiting Miami on a budget, or just prefer to explore the city yourself with bus rental services, then you might be considering exploring the city on your own. But what should you see and how should you do it?

Take a walk about the gorgeous walk by Bayfront Park. From there, head towards the bay in the bus charter just past the Hard Rock Café and you can catch Biscayne Bay in all its glory, with the Port of Miami in the background. Turn back pass Bayfront Park and walk down to the mouth of the river and see an impressive sculpture by Haitian-born Edouard-Duval Carrié and amazing wall drawings by Cuban-born Glexis Novoa.

From the mouth of the river, take a moment to consider that the concrete jungle of Brickell Key was once a swamp with a pristine where the first pioneers traded goods with Indians who paddled up from the Everglades in their dugout canoes. It's an amazing sight, we assure you.

Continue on towards Biscayne Boulevard in the mini bus and at the end of the path, look straight directly south across the river at Philippe Starck’s massive Icon development, then look at the empty patch of grass by the river’s edge. This location, Miami Circle is the site of an ancient archeological site where Tequesta Indians lived over 2,000 years ago.

For those of you who prefer a bird’s eye view to the city, the best option is to take the Metromover, Miami’s free light rail system.

There are three loops – Omni, Downtown and Brickell. The Omni loop takes you as far north as the School Board, with the Miami Herald and Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts along the way. The Downtown loop circles the business and shopping district. The Brickell loop on the other hand travels as far south as 14th street. However, you can enjoy seamless traffic in the party bus.

If you get confused where you’re going, just observe the electronic signs above the track. You really can’t get lost though as the loops are finite and each rail car always returns to the same starting point.

The Brickell loop is the best way to get a bird’s eye view of Downtown and its surrounding neighborhoods and you’ll pass by many historic buildings and high over the river.

You’re not done yet, there’s so much to explore that all you have to do is look up a place and google it but if you prefer to be driven around, then waste no time in contacting Bus Rental Miami and book a tour bus for a quick lookaround around the city by charter bus.
