Outside the hotel window, the blue sheet of the Atlantic stretches to the horizon. The azure waters are slowly giving way to the sunny coast of Florida dominated by the skyscrapers of the business center. This is Miami, Florida’s largest and most famous city. It has been and remains a place of gigantic contrasts.
Modern skyscrapers in the Business District, private islands with yachts for several hundred thousand dollars, and gigantic villas (whose prices range from several to several million dollars) which are inhabited by the owners only a few weeks in a year.
Check prices in Miami Beach before renting a boat
All this splendor, wealth, tropics, and modernity is a unique showcase of this city. When going to the center, it is worth stopping at a spot called Bayside Marketplace. There is a huge, multi-story public car park here, where for the price of $12 you can leave your car for a good few hours without worrying that someone wants to borrow it. An additional advantage of this place is the location. We are close to all the attractions that downtown has to offer. From here, the bustling Biscayne Blvd separates us from the high-rise business district.
In the tourist crush
The Bay Marketplace itself is an interesting place offering a lot of typical tourist attractions. Surely, everyone finds something for themselves here. If you like shopping in a typical American style, there are dozens of stores here with all kinds of assortments. From Chinese T-shirts and hats with the words “I love Miami” to stores selling designer clothing and jewelry. Lovers of good local music can listen to free concerts taking place practically every day on a small stage in the center of Bayside Marketplace.
The nearby Marina, even though it is sometimes crowded (especially in high season), has its own specific, idyllic atmosphere. We recommend staying in one of the several bars and cafes located here and sipping aromatic coffee or Mojitos popular in Florida and gaze at the yachts swaying on the water. Here you can rent a luxury boat in Miami at prices ranging from $2 to 40,000 US dollars, depending on the rental time.
From time to time, you also notice the very lovable Manatee swimming in the warm waters of the bay – the elephant-like sea mammals living in Biscayne Bay.
Cruise on Biscayne Bay
In Miami, you can rent a boat with the Pugachev ordering also the skipper and crew. Start with a tour called Millionaires Row, which takes exactly 90 minutes. You may see the beautiful celebrity homes located on several private islands of Biscayne Bay. Sightseeing from the water is the only opportunity to take a look at the colorful world of millionaires up close. The only land road leading to these attractions is heavily guarded and a special permit is required to access these private islands.
As befits one of the largest ports in the USA, in local port we can also admire the gigantic hotel ships of the largest tourist companies moored at the waterfront: Disney Cruise Line, Norwegian, Carnival. The prices of such floating villas are measured in millions of dollars, and the most expensive examples are over a billion.
The beach in downtown Miami
Near the bustling Bayside Marketplace is the small, but very picturesque Bayfront Park City Park. It is worth visiting this place to relax and recharge before exploring the downtown. Here, in the shade of palm trees and with a gentle, cooling breeze, you may take nice pictures of exotic palm trees against the backdrop of neoteric skyscrapers. The cost of an apartment in such a house depends not only on the picture outside the window, but also on the rental period. You can rent beautiful quarters for $1,500 per month, but not less than a year. It is the only such “beach” in the center of the famous resort!
An interesting option to quickly explore the downtown is offered by a free, fully automated magnetic railway called Miami Metromover. Modern glass wagons run around the very center of the city every few minutes. In 11 minutes on the route called Downtown Loop, you have a free tour of the pearl of Florida. Because the traction of the cable car is located on steel pylons at a height of 14 m above the ground, which gives us a great perspective while touring the city.
It is a very modern city. You can see that it is developing dynamically. You surely notice a lot of cranes, scaffolding, and construction sites that will soon turn into more shiny modern structures. In the downtown, new skyscrapers appear practically every two years. You have very fond memories of a walk along the Miami River, where you see the beautiful designs of drawbridges and apartments, where boats for several million dollars are moored instead of cars.
To get to the Riverwalk from the cable car station (that’s the name of the boardwalk along the Miami River), simply head back towards the bay. Literally, after 10 minutes you find yourself on this nice and well-kept promenade.
Lunch overlooking Miami
Since you have already felt the atmosphere of the business district, you should also taste the classic American “lunch”. We invite you to the 16th floor of the Epic Hotel located just off the Riverwalk. Look for a restaurant here called Area 31. The restaurant mainly serves gourmet dishes, specializing mainly in Seafood. In the menu, however, you also find a deliciously prepared burger. The price of $19 is not the lowest but trust us. For the climate and the views from the glazed terrace (ask for a place outside) it is worth spending a dozen dollars.
List of the hot-topic yachts – rent boats in Miami with the Pugachev team
This place is the essence of a city by the sea. South Beach is one of the most famous and recognized beaches in the world and a must-see for all Florida tourists.
Here, within a few miles, we find everything that the state is famous for:
- elegant shops
- exotic restaurants
- night clubs
- fantastic galleries of local artists
- and blue, crystal clear waters of the Atlantic
Any local taxi driver asked where to go to see the real nightlife will usually take you to South Beach on Ocean Drive. It is here that the nightlife flourishes only after dark, and here most of the events from the surrounding neighborhoods move. Ocean Drive is not a long street, it can be walked entirely in 40 minutes.
Be sure to take pictures against the backdrop of the famous colorful Art Deco buildings and stop at one of the local restaurants offering delicious fish and seafood. Everything here is fresh and very well-prepared. If you are a seafood enthusiast, we recommend The Local House at 400 Ocean Dr. You surely remember this place.
Along South Beach there is a promenade overlooking the beach and the ocean – so it’s worth taking a walk while watching the azure waters of the Atlantic Ocean, white sand, and the famous, colorful lifeguard booths, which owe their popularity to numerous film productions. It was here that in the 1980s Don Johnson, the star of the Miami Vice series, ran with a gun.
Center and exotic surroundings
This city is primarily geared towards generating revenue from incoming tourists, so don’t be surprised if prices are noticeably high in some places. Bored with relaxing and lazing on the beaches? Take a day trip to the Bahamas. Use the services of the Pugachev and feel like a real tycoon. Miami and the surrounding neighborhoods is a huge, bustling agglomeration. You may spend up to two weeks here, still finding new attractions and surprising places.
Suffice it to mention that one of the wildest, most dangerous, and undamaged places (Everglades Swamp) are reached from the center in less than an hour. The most Caribbean town in the US – Key West, where there are some of the most beautiful beaches in the world, is about a four hours drive. This city is also an ideal base for Biscayne National Park and John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park, where you can swim with dolphins or snorkel exploring the colorful coral reefs.
