When you make the trip to Miami, you'll be leaving Boston through the Logan International Airport, located about 3 miles from Boston's downtown area. Airlines providing flights to Miami include US Airways, American Airlines, United Airlines and Delta.
Transportation to the airport from the center of Boston is available by MBTA lightrail service and taxi. The subway service to the airport takes between 30 to 40 minutes and costs $2.50. A taxi will get you there in only 15 to 25 minutes but will cost about $25 to $45. Driving to the airport is another option, as long-term parking is provided at Logan starting at $18 a day for the economy lot.
While you're waiting to board your flight, Logan has several restaurants in the terminals where you can grab a meal. There are a wide variety of restaurants available both before you go through security, like Ozone, which is a combined retro-looking cocktail lounge and restaurant or after security, like Wolfgang Puck, which serves the chef's signature soups and pizzas.
The city of Miami is located on the Atlantic coast of Florida on the southeastern tip of the state. The city is a favored destination for visitors who come to enjoy everything from the beautiful beaches to the specialty shops selling everything from antiques to artwork.
Flights to Miami arrive at the Miami International Airport, about 7 miles from downtown Miami. Once you reach the airport, traveling to your final destination in the city is easy with the transportation provided. Shuttle vans are available for $15 to the downtown area, or you can take a taxi at a cost of $21.70. Bus service is also provided, with the Airport Flyer express bus traveling to the downtown area for only $2.35.
The best time to travel to Miami is between January and April when you can escape the chill of Boston in exchange for the warm Miami waters. The temperature during the peak season averages in the 70s degree Fahrenheit range, and there is little rainfall to spoil a day out on the town. You should dress fairly light for your trip and include a light jacket in case the temperature happens to fall.
There's plenty to do in Miami upon your arrival. The ability to relax on the beaches or enjoying a bit of sailing and snorkeling are prime reasons to visit the area. If you'd like to see more of Florida's natural side, you can go to the nearby Biscayne and Everglades National Parks instead. There's also lots of shopping available, either in the small specialty shops of Coral Gables or at the large outlet Sawgrass Mills Mall or Dolphin Mall. After the sun goes down, many visitors turn to the ample nightlife available in the city for fun, especially in the Miami Beach neighborhood.
