When you think about South Florida, you probably imagine sunscreen, cigarette boats, and swilling beer down by the ocean. But Miramar shows the Sunshine State's sleepier side—and that's exactly how founder A. L. Mailman intended it. Though this so-called 1950s-era bedroom community originally featured only 56 homes, it's since swelled to a population of over 125,000. Don't let its residential orientation fool you, though. Vacationers fresh from flights to Miramar will find plenty to entertain themselves within the city itself and also around Fort Lauderdale–Hollywood International Airport (FLL).
Transportation From FLL
As Miramar flights begin their landing patterns, travelers should make sure to glance out of their planes' windows for an incredible view. Spray-capped waves. Towering condominiums. Canals choked with yachts and sailboats of all sizes. No wonder the area has been described as the "Venice of America." After you've landed at Fort Lauderdale–Hollywood International, you'll find it easy to get where you're going. Each of the four terminals features a taxi kiosk and a usually lengthy line of cabs ready to take you to your hotel in Miramar. Just make your way to the lower level. Want to rent a car? The Rental Car Center next to Terminal 1 houses a dozen agencies. Unfortunately, though, Miramar is about 20 miles away from the airport, and few hotels offer shuttle service. After you check in to your hotel, head to the Riverwalk in nearby downtown Fort Lauderdale, a strip of restaurants, bars, and even a children's science museum bordering the New River. Then, visit the Hugh Taylor Birch State Park, which provides a glimpse into what South Florida looked like before the first settlers arrived. And see if you can catch a concert or show at the Miramar Cultural Center while you're visiting.
