Doral, Florida, got its name from a combination of the first names of its founders, Doris and Alfred Kaskel and began its life as a golf resort. The resort became a town in the 1980s, and is now a suburb of Miami. Golf is still very important here, and the town is a regular stop on the PGA tour. Most hotels in Doral are very close to a golf course where you can practice your swing—when you're not relaxing in the sun, that is!
Doral is conveniently only eight miles west of Miami International Airport, and there are excellent cheap hotels in Doral, too, so it's an all-around great place to stay. You can get into town by taxi, by rental car, or on the public bus service. Besides its golf courses, Doral has other attractions that are worth visiting. The Museum of the Americas is an art museum containing exhibits from traditional and contemporary artists from throughout North and Latin America. Doral Central Park is a great place to walk, run, or just relax and enjoy the lake. If you want to clock some beach time while you're on vacation, there are amazing resorts in Miami, which is 15 miles to the east. Regular buses run to the city, or you can pick up rental cars in Doral and make the short drive. While you have the wheels, take the time to explore more of stunning South Florida, including Everglades National Park, 40 miles to the southwest, and Key Largo, 60 miles to the south. Key Largo also acts as a gateway to the rest of the beautiful Florida Keys.
