City of Miami
Business travelers and families who are in transit through the city on their way to a luxury cruise at the Port of Miami frequently prefer to visit the Downtown and Brickell Avenue areas to be closer to the Financial District and the Port. Guests at the Intercontinental, Tempo and Viceroy should be certain to visit the Bayside Marketplace, the city’s waterfront entertainment and shopping complex which provides a welcome oasis day and night. Miami’s Museum District features both art and historical museums which are easy to reach aboard the MetroMover, a free monorail safely circling the city. Nearby beaches at Key Biscayne are easily accessed en route to Coconut Grove and the historical landmarks Villa Vizcaya, the Barnacle and the quiet reaches of Coral Gables where the legendary Biltmore Hotel has recently been refurbished.
