Would like to visit south beach....

I will be on vacation in Fort Lauderdale and would like to go to south beach for a day. Can anyone recommend a way of transportation? How much would a cab be? How far is the ride to south beach? I dont drive so cant rent a car....thanks for your help

The water taxi doesn't go there in low season (which I presume is when you are visiting) so probably a cab would be the best answer, as regards cost I'm guesstimating at least $80 each way, it should take less than an hour depending on traffic. I love it but I wouldn't pay that sort of cab fare to get there.

The ride to South Beach is about 45 minutes usually, depending on traffic. Sue is right, the cost of a cab is about $85 + tip. It may be easier to just rent a car for a few days, and probably just as expensive as a round trip in a cab.

sobe4u and sue are both correct. I would also add that South Beach during the day/night is completely different and you might want to take the time to enjoy the daytime, go back to your hotel, freshen up and then have a nice dinner down there followed by some drinks. In any case, rent a car... rates are pretty reasonable nowadays.

Ask the concierge at W. They might work with a local transportation company.

I believe the W advertises they have an Acura TL for guest use?

Yeah they do have an Acura TL, I've seen it driving around... usually the hotel cars are only good for about 2-3 miles though, so you will still need outside transportation for South Beach.
