3. Plan your transportation

As a popular city, Miami offers a myriad of local transportation options. There will be a water taxi that runs from Bayfront Park and the American Airlines Arena to the Miami Marine Stadium that is free with your admissions ticket; keep track of the schedule with the Raft Up app! If you’re driving, there are several parking garages in the area where you can catch a shuttle to the show. There are also public transportation options available.

4. Explore Miami

 After you wrap up an exciting day perusing the show, unwind with an evening exploring all that Miami has to offer. Miami is known for its exquisite beaches, live music scene, Latin-infused cuisine, and much more. From lively nightlife to relaxing restaurants there is something to do for everyone. Brainstorm ideas for activities using the official tourism site.
