Driving!, Miami: 14 reviews and 8 photos

Awhile back Miami faced a large number of tourists being robbed at gun point and even killed.
It was a dark time for Miami and many tourists became afraid of traveling to our wonderful city.
This was due in part of unclear and confusing exit signs on the expressways and fact that Airport going to beach runs through a couple of seedy Miami areas.
Tourist would take a wrong turn, get off on the wrong exit and they'd become prime targets for the ever watchful gangs and druggies which are still prevalant in Miami as in ANY other big city.
Thankfully, newer signs, more clearly posted, newer exits and expressways have virtually made this problem non-existant. Nevertheless, be very careful when exiting airport.
Make sure you have a clear understanding from your rental agency which turns to take, where you should be headed, etc.
Avoid traveling at night if you're unsure or re-check at the toll plaza for directions.
