My hubby and I stayed at the Holiday Inn Port of Miami. Great location. Right accross the street from the Bayside Market place and from the port. You can see all the ships lined up and early in the morning you can see the ships pull in before sunrise and they look so pretty lit up.
We had a blast at the Bayside market. Lots to do, shopping, live music, boat rides. We took the Thriller high speed boat ride and it was a blast, they take you past the cruise ships, to star island, southbeach. Lots of food too. Try a Cuban sandwhich and a Pina Colada.Hmmmm
Highly recommend the Holiday Inn Port of Miami. Great breakfast in the morning too
