The Miami Lakes suburb of Miami, Florida was designed with lakes and trees in mind, giving the town a very pleasant and relaxing atmosphere. Its location 17 miles northwest of Downtown Miami makes it a great base for a vacation in the region—close enough to the big city that you won't have far to go, yet removed from the worst of the hustle and bustle. Book a stay in one of the hotels in Miami Lakes, and get ready to enjoy the Florida sunshine.
Visiting Miami Lakes
Miami Lakes, which is 14 miles north of Miami International Airport, is reached by bus, taxi, or rental car. If you're flying in to Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood Airport, 25 miles to the northeast, you can also use the bus service, hail a cab, or rent a car at the airport. While primarily a residential town, Miami Lakes has some shops and restaurants along Main Street, and it also features some lovely places to walk, such as Miami Lakes Park. Do you plan to spend some time in the city? It's a good idea to stay in one of the hotels in Miami, especially if you'll be partying in South Beach until the early hours. For day-trippers, it's just as simple to catch the bus back to Miami Lakes hotels.
Don't worry if you didn't pick up your wheels at the airport; there are Miami Lakes rental cars available for when you want to hit the road. South Florida has some of the most spectacular natural beauty anywhere in the world, from the Everglades, 50 miles southwest, to the Keys that begin at Key Largo, 70 miles to the south.
