Is there a mall near the Port Of Miami. We are getting there a day early before our cruise and would like to get a few more summer outfits. It hard to get clothes for warm weather in Nebraska at this time. Thanks L.C
We stqyed in Miami before our cruise also. There was a mall just a short walk from our hotel, which was near the port. We stayed at the Sheraton Biscayne Bay. The name of the mall is: Bayside Market place. The locals just call it, Bayside. We picked up a few things there ourselves. Bubba Gump shrimp restaurant is in it and it was fantastic. It is just like a mall here in NY, but without walls to enclose it. You eat outside, shop outside it was wonderful. Prices were not that high either. Some shops were out of the world, but others were normal priced. Enjoy!
We stayed at the Sheraton Biscayne Bay. It was very nice. The bar is pretty and it is sitting right on the water. The dinningroom is a bit pricy so be prepared if you eat there. We waited for the bus when we stayed there, but don't do that. Take a taxi, it will get you there faster and before all the 100's of people staying at the hotel. You can actually see the port from the hotel, all the pretty ships in a row... The rooms at the hotel are your typical hotel rooms, we had the lovely view of the roof ac, but I didnt' care, we were on vacation and about to go on a cruise.
We went for a walk, after we got there. There isn't really anything to walk to, the hotel is like in the financial district. Lots of big buildings but no shopping. We ate at the "Bayside" Bubba Gump restaurant and it was delicious. We took a taxi there, a bit of a walk.
