Stay in Maiami for 10 days in the end February 2014

Hello Everybody,

Will come to Maiami with my wife for the first time in the end Februarry for 10 days. Planning to rent a car and travel around. Any advices about the pace, hotel where to stay and to rent a car ? What prices are for car rent ?

Budget for the hotel up to 150 dollars per night. I heard it is not needed to book hotel very early.

Would like to stay in some quiet place , not extremely far from the beach, to be able to walk around safely in the evenings, to visit some restaurants, etc.

All your advices are most welcome.

It sounds as though you want to visit Miami Beach. It might be worthwhile for you to post your question in the Miami Beach forum.

I think your hotel budget is low. February is a very busy month, so you should probably book early.

All (or nearly all) of Miami Beach should be quite safe, though a local resident may have specific advice. Parts of Miami (including Coral Gables and South Miami) are also safe.

As BlueRusso stated, $150 is low for anywhere in Miami. Miami Beach is not quiet and for that amount, it's tough to find something. Try towards Hollywood Beach, about 20 mins from Miami Beach. The boardwalk in Hollywood is nice, then you can drive to Miami. In Miami you will look more at a budget of $200+.

Goodluck and Enjoy.

Thanks for your answer. Maybe you can mention some preferable hotel names in Holywood beach ?

Hollywood Beach mainly offers mom and pop motels, there is a Marriott.

Hi Marius>

South Beach in February is very popular because the weather here is BEAUTIFUL and elsewhere in the USA it is quite cold. In 10 days time a road trip would be wonderful.

Book a few nights in South Beach and then travel south through the Keys for a few nights and then back up the coast. You can visit quiet beach communities or travel up to northern Florida to spend a few days in the theme parks of Disney and Universal if that interests you.

You have to decide what you want to see and then TELL US so we can help you sort out the details…

Decide if you want a quiet beach visit, a more busy visit to a theme park or a spa or perhaps you want to do some shopping etc and let us know so we can help you plan.

Hello Advisor Girl,

Nice you have replied. We have checked the flights, come to Miami and totally will have 12 days to see around. We would like to spend sometime and see the beaches, see nice places, do some shopping. Planning to rent a car and travel around, so what you offered to travel through the Keys sounds very nice.

Would be nice to visit some theme parks also. In fact we would like both - to rest and to travel to see as much as possible. Maybe you could advise how we should distribute the time for such things and advise also the route. In general all your advises about everything is most welcome.

You are traveling in high season, rates are high! You should book your hotels as of now, the Marriott in Hollywood is going to cost you over $200+. Go to all the booking sites and enter Hollywood Florida and see what you find. There are a lot of small hotels right on the boardwalk. Do some searches online. The keys are very nice, my favorite spot is in Islamorada, The Postcard Inn, check the rates for that time frame. Check their discount rates and see if you can apply a discount. Key West is four hours from Miami, if you drive that far stay over night. The theme parks are also four hours heading North from Miami. You can stay in Orlando for a couple of nights and check out the parks, most of your stay in Hollywood/Miami, then a few nights between Islamorada and Key West.

If you want to shop you must go to Sawgrass Mills, North West of Miami, it's the best outlet mall in the area! Take comfi shoes, it's big!!!

Enjoy.
